Issue/Introduction

When scanning files with a .SwxCF file extension, Symantec Protection 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 Protection Engine does not support CFBF 4 files.

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