I am using Microsoft Threat Management Gateway 2010. I am trying to block users from downloading zip files if they contain a executable file.

I can block executable files and zip files individually, but not zip files containing a executable
Does anyone know if this is possible with this product?

I think it is impossible with pure TMG. You can add protection software (Forefront, Kaspersky, GFI Download security), but also in this case I'm not sure it is possible at all with legal (not detected by protection) exe file.
What if file will be renamed from zip to txt, for example? Or it will be packed with rar or 7zip?
