comment Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail , and so on; How do they check the content of an attached password-protected archived file like Winrar?
(cont'd) As for your perception on EU law, I sincerely hope you will not have to make decisions based on that (and assuming penal liability for failed bank or health related transactions after they have gone though a an SSL proxy, or understand what private data is when it crosses borders (hint: your "file owner is legal owner" will not hold in many cases, etc.))

Since you seem more knowledgeable than me on these subjects I will pass. I am not a lawyer, just someone who approved information security policies for several countries and who made damn sure that the legal part is correct, thanks to a great legal department.

(damn mobile app). Then the company seeing an SSL proxy may be liable in case of problems with your transaction (say with your bank). You will find that there is no one size fits all in international legal constraints.

I pressed send to fast. It is illegal to access encrypted files when they are personal files or data streams in the EU

I do not know what your experience with international law applied to information security is but it would be worthwhile getting in touch with your legal dept.

This is not your problem then : you are not liable for just receiving illegal content which you did not request. As for the viruses, the mall providers usually do their best to protect you and it ends there.

comment Bad practice to have a “god” password?
Looks to me that this answer is the closest one to OP problem. An administrative account is not the solution as it has a different visibility/behaviour than the one of the user being troubleshooted.

comment Do we need to logout of webapps?
As a side note -- it is interesting to check whether your critical application does force a re-authentication, ideally through a different mean (= if you log in with login/password, re-authenticate/confirm with an SMS) before running a critical operation (such as a wire transfer for a bank). Typically in a bank environment it is a very bad thing is someone manages to look at your account. It is a catastrophic one if someone manages to issue a transaction (transfer)
