At the moment, there is no direct method to block files using their names .
Following workarounds can be used:
1> Create a Custom URL category using the source URL of the file and block this custom-url category.
Eg : If you know the URLs where this file "hacker tutorial.pdf" could be downloaded from :
Create a custom URL category and block this category using URL filtering profile.
2> Create custom application signature for the URL path including the filename.
P.S: "But please keep in mind that once you block the file by filename your users will normally try to change the filename to bypass the control which makes it useless."
