Some dangerous files can pass trough (spaces in filenames)

Post by endokard » 28 Nov 2018 06:41

Hi,

I’ve got a problem with archives. Recent I’ve got e-mail with virus inside rar archive. After some tests I found that MailScaner won’t scan archives wich contains spaces in name. For example, if I put notepad.exe in archive with name “notepad.rar” MailScanner blocks it, because archive contains executable file. But if I put the same notepad.exe in archive named “my favorite notepad.rar” MailScanner will pass it trough.

Do you have any idea how to fix it?
