List of files blocked via File category filtering (MSME 8.5)

Jump to solution

As per the subject is there a list anywhere which list what files are blocked? We block Windows executables but I can't find a list anywhere what that includes. Is it just exe? or does it include msi? What about bat, com etc?

we don't have a specific list but the windows executable is any file that has 'MZ' at the beginning of the header.  you can see this by opening the file in a text editor.  examples would be exe, dll, scr.

Thanks. MSME let through an exe (Trojan) overnight so I have decided to play it safe and filter by name matches as well.
