How to get WF verdicts for URLs

I’ve been able to successfully submit files for analysis and file hashes for verdicts, that works fine, but I am now trying to submit a URL for a verdict, instead of a file. So I send this:

 

Submit Google Link to WF using API

curl -F 'apikey=<apikey>' -F 'link=https://www.google.com' 'https://wildfire.paloaltonetworks.com/publicapi/submit/link'

 

Response from WF:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<wildfire>

    <submit-link-info>

        <url>https://www.google.com</url>

        <sha256>ac6bb669e40e44a8d9f8f0c94dfc63734049dcf6219aac77f02edf94b9162c09</sha256>

        <md5>8ffdefbdec956b595d257f0aaeefd623</md5>

    </submit-link-info>

</wildfire>

 

I then try to get a verdict from WF

curl -F 'apikey=<apikey>' -F 'hash=8ffdefbdec956b595d257f0aaeefd623' 'https://wildfire.paloaltonetworks.com/publicapi/get/verdict'

 

Response from WF:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<wildfire>

    <get-verdict-info>

        <sha256></sha256>

        <verdict>-102</verdict>

        <md5>8ffdefbdec956b595d257f0aaeefd623</md5>

    </get-verdict-info>

</wildfire>

 

As you can see I get a “-102” response which means "unknown, cannot find sample record in the database".  I've done this for multiple links, both HTTP and HTTPS over a number of days but always get the -102 verdict.  Am I doing this correctly to get a verdict for a URL?  I have opened a TAC case but they don't have any answers for me other than they'll get back to me and that it may take some time...

Hello,

I have also received a similar response from TAC regarding URL's or files submitted via a URL. What I do is double check with 3rd party sites such as virustotal or hybrid-analysis to see what they have to say about it as well. It's good to get second or thrid opinions.

 

Regards,
