MS Update ActiveX Cab file Denied?

Hello.

 

I just reloaded a Windows 7 x64 computer.  The first check wants to update the Windows update agent.

For some reason PA blocks it as a ActiveX Cab file.

The first check allows, but the it's denied. (picture attached).

I added a Virus exception for the identity and added MSUpdate as an ALERT only to my data filtering object. Still not working/allowed.

 

What could I be missing to 'whitelist/allow' this file?pa1272018a.JPG

@catrock,

Have you verified that the traffic is getting denied due to any File Blocking profiles? If you expand the log entry it would help in seeing what exactly is going on.

Hi BPry,

@catrock,

That's a file block. You need to ensure that you are allowing .cab files in your File Blocking profile assigned to the rule processing this traffic.
