In Blocked requests you can specify the file types and MIME types (content types for the transferred data) to be blocked by Web Protection. Web Protection prevents the transfer of data from the Internet to your computer system. (Options available in expert mode only.)
Web Protection blocks the following file types / MIME-Types
All file types and MIME types (content types for the transferred data) in the list are blocked by Web Protection.
In this box, enter the names of the MIME types and file types you want Web Protection to block. For file types, enter the file extension, e.g. .htm. For MIME types, indicate the media type and, where applicable, sub-type. The two statements are separated from one another by a single slash, e.g. video/mpeg or audio/x-wav.
Files which are already stored on your system as temporary Internet files and blocked by Web Protection can, however, be downloaded locally from the Internet by your computer’s Internet browser. Temporary Internet files are files saved on your computer by the Internet browser so that websites can be accessed more quickly.
The list of blocked file and MIME types is ignored if they are entered in the list of excluded file and MIME types under Web Protection > Scan > Exceptions.
No wildcards (* for any number of characters or ? for a single character) can be used when entering file types and MIME types.
MIME types: Examples for media types:
text = for text files
image = for graphics files
video = for video files
audio = for sound files
application = for files linked to a particular program
Examples of excluded file and MIME types
application/octet-stream = application/octet-stream MIME type files (executable files *.bin, *.exe, *.com, *dll, *.class) are blocked by Web Protection.
application/olescript = application/olescript MIME type files (ActiveX script-files *.axs) are blocked by Web Protection.
.exe = All files with the extension .exe (executable files) are blocked by Web Protection.
.msi = All files with the extension .msi (Windows Installer files) are blocked by Web Protection.
The button allows you to copy MIME and file types from the input field into the display window.
