Custom Threat is being identified, but not taking the correct action.

L1 Bithead

We have a custom vulnerability for Datanyze Scraping that is being idenfied but only alerting.  This signature looks for http-req-headers and dns-req-headers for the value of Datanyze.  This is working great, I can see the traffic in the threat log so I know it is being properly identified.


The configuration of the signature has it set as Severity: Medium, Default Action: Reset Both, Direction: Both and Affected System:  Client-and-server.


I checked the policies where the traffic is coming in on and it has the correct vulnerability profile.  Note that on the profile we have criticals - mediums set to do a reset-both.  We also are not using app-id on this policy but traditional 80/443 service ports.


Any idea why this would be happening?  My next step is a support ticket but would like to figure this one out on my own.
