    PUP detections show an appended file of same file type

    soviatt

      This is a cut from a PUPS alert that I get pretty often, where a particular file will have an appended file of the same file type yet it's not a real file. This happens with Office documents as well, though mostly from Publisher and PowerPoint. I have no idea why the appendage is there, and there does not appear t be anything embedded in the files. Anyone have ideas about this?

       

      The appendage is hard to see so I inserted a space and BOLDFACED the font for clarity.

       

      Thank you!
