Block .html only in .zip

One more thing:

The presumed HTML file might be “ASCII text, with CRLF line terminators” and might be detected as “asc”, instead of html?. 

In this case, T can be T=(asc|html?)



file resume.htm
file –i resume.htm
In some cases last command might return application/octet-stream mime-type. Not sure, but if is a maware, some code is embedded in this case.


You can create new T(ypes) in  $map_full_type_to_short_type_re - very useful to block xls and doc with malware.



Thank you for helping me earlier, today.

I didn’t test this rule. I just made it up:


$banned_namepath_re = new_RE(

[ qr'(?# BLOCK HTML as application/x-zip-compressed)

^ (.*\t)? M=application/x-zip-compressed

\t(.*\t)* T=html? 

\t(.*\t)* N=[^\t\n]* \. zip 

(\t.*)? $'xmi => 'DISCARD'],


Run this command below and see what’s the Mime-Type of that file an replace the value in M=. Can be different than application/x-zip-compressed.
file –i

When you run your test, place this in your amavis and restart it. Will give you many combined values matched against $banned_namepath_re.
@debug_sender_maps = ( ["test-sender\@$mydomain"] );

Is it possible to set up banned_rules to block .html,.htm if they are only inside attached .zip file?

I can not block .html,.htm files because some users want to receive them.

For example:
unzip -l Downloads/
Archive:  Downloads/
  Length      Date    Time    Name
---------  ---------- -----   ----
