HTML files

Content Awareness is not scanning HTML files (for type and content) which downloaded using GET method over HTTP because it could lead to high performance impact.

In order to enable scanning, you need to modify fileapp_parse_html kernel parameter to 1, by running the command fw ctl set int fileapp_parse_html 1 on the Security Gateway. Change will be applied immediately, but will not survive reboot.

For more information on setting kernel parameters including permanent setting see sk26202.
