Deny a specific file from being uploaded into Wildfire?

Is there a way to deny a specific file from being uploaded into the Wildfire service?

Hello genep,

If you know the source IP address of the file, you can create a security rule on top of the existing rule with a that IP address configured in it and NOT associate any file blocking profile to it.

Hope that helps!

Thanks and regards,

You can only restrict by file type inside a Wildfire configuration.

Or by the user/station source overall, as Kadak notes, in the rule.

You can't exclude a particular file name.  Wildfire compares hashes not names so it does not even pay attention to the file name in the process.

Sorry to kick an old topic.

 

But indeed it would be nice to have an option to make exemption(s) for a certain hash(es).

I think you really want it on hashes in case a file changes.
