No, what I would expect is that it has the smarts (and it does, we are
doing it here with Trend) to look inside the Zip and stop any zip
containing any .scr/.exe/.com/.you-name-executable files.  Check your Trend
(or whatever mail checker you are using) configs and set them
appropriately.  Double check to see that you have not granted your own
domain exemptions from your rules to eliminate the spoofed mail walking
through and waving at your gateway on the way by.  The zip's contents can
be seen without the password, just not unpacked...no cracking it required.
You should be blocking executables by policy anyway, yes?

Well, what would you expect, that the virusgateway would brute-forcecrack
zip password ?  No.  It has only two options:

A) Delete all password protected zipfiles regardless
B) Let any and all password protected zipfiles through.

Option A) is not really [usually] acceptable in the real world. (YMMV)


Yes of course I'm sure it's the red cable. I guarante[^%!/+)F#0c|'NO
