Issue/Introduction

When scanning files with a .SwxCF file extension, Symantec Scan Engine produces a scan error.

File produces a scan error.

Cause

These files are of type CFBF 4 (Compound File Binary Format having Major version =4).  Currently Scan Engine does not support CFBF 4 files.

Resolution

Symantec Engineering is currently researching this issue as a possible enhancement to the product.

Please monitor this document for status updates on this issue.

Currently Symantec recommends excluding this file type from scanning via the appropriate connecter so that the file is not sent for scanning to Scan Engine.
