Your Symantec Protection Engine (hereafter "SPE") 7.5 is working with RPC or with ICAP FILEMOD.

You set the encrypted container policy to "Block" or "Log Only", and when you either save a password-protected PDF file on a Filer share or request to scan such a PDF with ICAP FILEMOD, you notice that the file is replaced with 0 byte file and not being blocked from access.


There is a hotfix available for this issue.

Download the attached hotfix to this document and follow the instructions in the Read Me file.

Applies To

  • This issue is applicable only to SPE build with RPC or with ICAP FILEMOD.
