Can you paste your banned file configuration?

Hi all,
The file you can find here [1] bypasses amavis extensions checks.

In my configuration .exe are banned (even inside .zip files)

Though for some reasons this .zip passes.

I also have checks for double extensions which on normal files work (still even within .zip files)
I also tryed renaming the file (leaving the .zip)

This one bypasses the checks and I'm probably too dumb to find out why.
Any help would be appreciated.

*N.B. Obviously it's a virus so do not execute the file!!!!!!*
