    Dropbox and Global Media type filtering



      I`m my organization we allow dropbox for users.


      We using MacAfee web gateway7.3 as transparent proxy


      We also have a global media type filtering that block executable files.

      I notice that users can upload and download executables file from dropbox.

      In the rule tracing central I can see that the mwg recognize this files as application/x-empty and because that it's allow all file types include some virus and malware.

      Thisis a big problem!

      when i block the application/x-empty in the global media type filtering , the mwg block all files in dropbox.

      How can I create a rule that block this files and allow only approved file types inthe dropbox application?
