Media Type Detection Error PDF files in *.dat file format

Dear MWG-Power-Admins!

We detect a recent rise in PDF files being blocked. It looks like they're generated online (on-demand) and come in a *.dat file format. Default detection fails as the media typ is unknown. (MWG latest release)

Anybody experiencing also this kind of issue?

Many thanks,

fab

- no ideas? Media Type Filter Bypass as such is working of course.

No, unfortunatly not. These are b2c, b2b sites which require a user login. i.e. a user requests a study and the pdf is generated and displayed in the browsers, well the error is ;-))

its blocked as file typ: pdf-obj-1-0.dat

thx,

fabi

Any news on this subject?

We are still getting complaint from our customers, as we only allow ensured Media Types per default.
