Scanning pdf file with internal attachment

Hello ! 

One of our BU wants to know if VSE is able to scan PDF files having an attachment into the file. This is an option when you create PDF.

I tried to check on VSE policies, but i don't find the relevant option. 

Could the PDF created in that case considered as an archive file ? (and then we have the option in VSE policies to scan in archive).

Thanks for your help and feedback.

Re: Scanning pdf file with internal attachment


Thank you for your post. The direct answer to your question is that we can detect ,malicious pdf that may contain scripts/attachments, however, we do not have specific scanning options that can enabled or disable this scanning.

I sincerely hope this answers your question.
