    Compressed files and scan

    Andre Lima

      Helo everyone.


      I would like to know if there is an option to Email Gateway scan compressed files and see what is inside?


      We are getting a lot of spams with .zip files attached and a.exe file inside these ones.


      Is there a way to do that? Can someone give me instructions please?


      Thank you all very much and have a nice day.

          The MEG's scans the contents of compress files automatically, to block emails with .exe you would want to sent up a file filtering rule under compliance.


          -Find File Filtering under compliance

          -Click add rule, Create name

          -Check Enable File Category Filtering

          -Under Category Filtering choose Windows Executable and make sure Other Specific Windows Executables is checked.

          -Click ok

          -Under If Trigger pick your action

          -Then save. 


          That's a pretty basic way of blocking or quarantining .exe

            Thanks for the answer.


            I confirm that the file filtering rule is already configured. So I guess that there is something wierd happening or maybe it is a bug related.
