What is revealed when you click Help at lower left?

 

The primary issue is that you are using an ancient version of Kaspersky. Please see the Important topics for upgrade instructions.

Kaspersky Labs dont think its important to be able to "Filter Email Attachments"..so they left it out in newer versions..that is why i use Kis2013..because Kis2015 doesnt have that function anymore..

 

Now we cant stop nasty attachments from reaching end users...because Kaspersky Labs thinks it is not important to be able to delete Malicious attachments.

 

That's the reason so many people's pc's are wrecked by the Decryptor variants out there...sad.

Its not useful to do it by extension, as anybody could name the file with anything they desire, and thus bypass that list.

 

The layered approach in KIS will examine files on execution and classify them as harmful or not. On default settings that action happens automatically with the help of both signature definitions, proactive defense, and cloud rating engine. The product will make the intelligent decisions for you, keeping your computer out of harms way. Kaspersky Labs cares about security and thats why more is happening behind the scenes vs. previous versions as technologies and malware threats of that period were less complicated.

At least if you could set it to delete .exe and .zip files (containing Cryptolocker) the end user cant open it..even if it is renamed to .doc or .pdf ..if Kaspersky has the option to delete certain mail attachments as in Kis2013 the end user cant get Cryptolock virus types via email..

 

We had Crypto lock on various client computers where it simply came through even with the latest Kaspersky KIS2015 updated every 1 hour...Kaspersky didnt stop it once..even with KES8 and KES10 without the email attachment filter setting set to delete .exe .zip and .rar etc... it didnt stop malware from installing....KASPERSKY is USELESS without the "email Attachment Filter options to DELETE "...

 

Why cant Kaspersky put that function back even on KES8/10 where a normal Server has RDP profiles setup with pop3 mailboxes..it can only scan the attachment files coming into a pop3 account in Outlook once the attachment has been opened and the pc has been compromised..at least with the option to delete the attachments immediately when Outlook collects the mail the PC is not compromised...

 

How do you stop a user from opening a file.zip attachment with feab.exe inside it ...when he opens Outlook and collect emails from a pop3 account (all setup on a Server with RDP profile..from a thinclient) ???

Kaspersky is useless that way...

 

Also the Kaspersky for Mail server doesnt have the ability to delete attachments with certain file types...it cant scan pop3 mail traffic...only scans Exchange...useless for the majority of clients that is using pop3 accounts or maildrop accounts..

a renamed .exe file or renamed .zip file wont open at least if the file extension is renamed to something else....Kaspersky is set to delete all attachments except for doc xls pdf jpg png pps etc.. the rest is deleted...Word or XLS cant open an exe file if it is renamed to a .doc file and mailed to a person.

Hi Support…

 

Please see attached pic..we need a kaspersky for server2008 (8 users acessing the server from thinclients and each user using Outlook with a POP3 account set up on it) that can scan incoming and outgoing email and that has the attachment filter ability,

It MUST have the attachmet filter option under Mailscan to delete the attachment types selected….Kes8 and Kes10 have that option but only on workstations…we need it on the Server with Outlook pop3 clients.

With Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 Mail Scan had those options…now with Kis2014/2015 it is gone…even Kaspersky for Server doesn’t have the Mail Scan settings …

 

Please help ..as the Antivirus is useless if Malicious attachments can’t be deleted before the user opens it..

 

What Kaspersky product do you recommend..according to our kaspersky Supplier Kaspersky for Mail servers can only scan email attachments on Exchange when already opened..it doesn’t support “Mail Scan” using pop3 mailboxes and also doesn’t have the :Attachment Filetring option to either Rename or Delete certain Attachment types as specified
