Re: Configure rule to prohibit group to download executable files

Hi @gruenerpuma 

to me this looks like a semantic error. Your Rule never becomes true as Criteria b and Criteria c exclude each other. So the overall Criteria for Blocking is never met.

I think that you've forgotten to set correct brackets (see "Criteria Combination:" on Your screenshot) so that this Criteria makes sense from a logical point of view.

Best regards
