HI @OsamaKhan,

 

Palo Alto Networks' Unit 42 published a blog about this recently where it was stated that the Cortex XDR agent offers protection using several modules. From Unit42:

 

"Cortex XDR customers are protected using the product’s WildFire integration, as well as through the Local Analysis, the Password Theft Protection module, and the Behavioral Threat Protection (BTP) engine. Protections are continually being evaluated, developed, and deployed for Cortex XDR."

I find that as of 17 Dec, there was at least two different BIOC Rules that were added.  Are you seeing those in your instances?
