PDF + COM Attachment Problem

From: Urban, Frank (

it took me 15min to have the first problem....

When this mail is send though the Anmomyser:

"Content-Type: application/octet-stream;
" name="Vulnerability-8315.pdf"
"Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
"Content-Disposition: attachment;
" filename="Vulnerability-8315.pdf"
"Content-ID: <>

it looks like:

"Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"; name="DEFANGED-45.txt"
"Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit
"Content-Disposition: inline; name="DEFANGED-45.txt"
"Content-ID: <DEFANGED-45>

the DEFANGED-45.txt says: An attachment named
was deleted....
and the Attachment is gone.
When I configure that the Anomyser did not block .com files, also no
attachment will arrive

That look like:

"Content-Type: application/octet-stream; nam e=""
"Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
"Content-Disposition: attachment; filenam e=""
"Content-ID: <>

(Sorry for the Spaces in "filename". I need it for the Firewall)

I hope that is a bug not not a wrong configuation. But I have realy no idear
what I can do.

Mit freundlichen Gruessen
