    Blocking .com extension mime files but not .txt files?

    support.bnl

      Hi All.

       

      We are using a Web gateway 7.1 and would like to block all executables including .com files.

      We see that they gateway does not have the .com in the application catorogy list.

       

      Currently i have the bellow rule set for "request", "responses" and "embedded objects"

       

      MediaType.FromFileExtension contains .com

      OR

      MediaType.FromFileExtension contains application/octet-stream

      OR

      MediaType.FromFileExtension contains text/plain

       

      That is working fine and blocking .com files

       

       

      BUT

       

      a .txt file also has a text/plain mime and these are blocked now is well.

       

      So the question is:

       

      is it possible to block .com file and let .txt files not?

       

      -> Extra info

      i tried google, searching the KB but did not find anything.
