Friewall does not send ms-files to wildfire

L1 Bithead


i setup wildfire to forward any application, any files so wildfire could test files against malware.

I discovered that ms-office files are not sent to wildfire.

File blocking rule is set to any/any/both/forward

Antivirus rule is set to block on wildfire for http/smtp/ftp

Antivirus rule is set to policy rule.

Despite of this i can upload/download malware .doc file either in ftp or smtp

PA-3020 PAN-OS 6.1.2


are those really .doc files or .docx?

.docx files are detected as zip files because they are decrypted. Could you update your File Blocking Profile and add zip to the file types?

Files are doc files.

msoffice type does not includes docx or xlsx files ?
