Password encrypted files

I thought I read a new feature (6.70 in use) would be to filter out passworded files. Am I wrong? If not where is that feature?

It's in the spam options. It assumes you're not "Ctrl-Y"ing the downloads too which bypasses the filters.

Ooh, I thought I would detect passworded files in advance. Like binsearch does.

Our search engine does that.

In Newsbin, it'll download the first chunk of the first rar and abort if it's encrypted. You can't tell if something is encrypted till you download part of the file and check.
