ZoneAlarm harmful files quarantining failure



COMMAND

    ZoneAlarm

SYSTEMS AFFECTED

    ZoneAlarm

PROBLEM

    "bacano" posted  following.   MailSafe is  a feature  on ZoneAlarm
    Pro  that  identifies  in  e-mail  attachments potentially harmful
    files (ex: *.exe, *.com, *.reg, *.vbs or others that can be  added
    in this  feature configuration),  and renames  their extension  to
    *.zl*; at the same time it  can show an alarm box to  inform about
    this.

    The problem with  this feature is  that it do  not work with  long
    file names, like:

        zonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetestzonetest.com

    The same goes for other file types as .exe .reg or .vbs.

    All versions of ZoneAlarm have this problem.

SOLUTION

    ZoneLabs is informed of this since 1 February 2001, and until  now
    (version 2.6.84) the problem remains the same.
