Wildfire and Fileblocking

L3 Networker

Hi Team,


Want to understand how i can use  WF and file blocking.


Suppose if am using wildfire analysis and using a default policy 

application - any 

Filetypes - any 

Direction - both 

Analysis - Public-cloud


and Using a File blocking profile as attached.


and say i am downloading an executable file from Internet and it is not malicious - so as per my understanding it will be analyzed with Wildfire and it will reflect me in WF analysis logs and then FB will block it  ?? as I am blocking PE file types ........correct me if i am wrong.


Also If my file size for WF is 12 mb for PDF and if i am downloading PDF-20mb  from unknown source which may be malicious, but my WF analysis will not happen right and if PDF is allowed in Fileblocking it will be allowed in my environment ?


so how to tackle this situation.


Please guide on this, any doc or help is appreciated.
