RAR file blocking through wildfire

L1 Bithead

Good day,

Please advise how can we scan and block RAR files,as file blocking profile does not help in this file type's cases. Is it possible to solve the issue via wildfire subscription shown in the picture below?

You can block rar files through a file blocking profile, this format is not supported for wildfire scanning however

Dear reaper,

 We had  file blocking profile configured (mail_file_blocking-1),however this does not work. File_blocking.png

Hi @TerezaGevorkyan

 

It looks like rar and encrypted-rar are not in the list of blocked file types

Dear reaper,

 

it did not help, so we just used Symantec Messaging Gateway, which blocks viruses in the rar file. Thank You
