TGZ File Blocked - Email Exploit Engine detected potential exploit/s Malformed File Extension
Since Version 20.3 the normal (Linux) used file-extention "tgz" for archive-files were blocked. We have test this with some harmless files. Renameing this files from tgz to tar.gz, the file will not blocked. So extend the ruleset for Email exploit engine, please.
This sounds like a defect to me, do you have a support ticket please?

There is still a open ticket. Please look up in your ticketsystem.
(If you like you can contact me direktly.)
But the answer was:
The only current option would be for either changing the file extension from the linux server tar.gz or disable malformed extensions.
It would require changes from development in order to change the settings.
We recommend sending a message concerning the changes to http://feedback.gfi.com/.
