Issue

When a File Blocking profile is configured to block the .zip files, it also blocks the .jar files

Resolution

This is expected behavior.

JAR files are built on the ZIP file format and have the .jar file extension. Since the firewall examines the file type, not the extension, JAR files are identified as ZIP files.
