File blocking by extension

Jump to solution

Hello,

Is it possible (or suggested) to block special files by the file extension with URL filter rules?

Rule: URL matches *.scf > Block

I'd like to block .scf .wsf (and other specific) files but I cannot block it with media type because the file type is too general (application/octet-stream).

Thanks!

Zoltan
