Wildfire .ace archive support

Does Wildfire support the .ace filetype?  I've received messages that should have been filtered that have .ace payloads.  The message attachments are clearly malware based on virustotal.  The message bodies are classic phishing type attacks. I have all filetypes being sent to Wildfire from our mail gatways but this one doesn't seem to have matched the Data Filtering rule.

there's no support for ACE in File Blocking or Data filtering profiles.

ACE is a proprietary format that needs to be licensed from GmbH.


Data Filtering only supports zip/gzip compression formats.


Apologies as i'm sure you already knew all of this.
