Hello

I wonder why our Firewall (PA 3050, OS 9.0.1) block this file (sha256 is 1de240b2651e76fe40a5c83edc60b339b56c668702c1059d26219d231e221239) with TID 280198281 (threat vault state that sha256 is 7c66b9098165e596106652d60375d8072ba62247f674f3f1317e2a433d4af8b9)

Currently if we enable check virus, many user can not send mail because of virus block
