Possible McAfee GroupShield Vulnerability Jan 25 2007 03:05PM

I have found a possible GroupShield vulnerability involving protected Windows operating system files with a .sys extension. I am currently blocking by extension and it is allowing the files to come through successfully our Exchange server system from the outside. I have been working closely with McAfee on this issue, however they appear to be content in ignoring the bug. I was wondering if anyone out there would be able to write a malicious POC file that would be able to slip through the GroupShield product based on these principles. Successful files sent include msdos.sys, config.sys, and pagefile,sys. Mcafee claims that it is a 0 byte issue (file not registering any size are allowed) however I am able to successfully modify these files and send them. I am a network administrator and not a security expert, so any help would be appreciated.
