C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs
what that means? any way to solve it or delete these repetitive events?
The event means that Traps detected an attempt to exploit a Windows process.
They are several types of memory corruption exploit, you can find a list here fyi : https://docs.paloaltonetworks.com/traps/3-4/traps-endpoint-security-manager-admin/exploit-protection...
The way to "solve" these events (and more generally any Traps events) is to investigate further to see if it's an expected behavior (so these events = false positives) or if it's a real threat detected on the systems. To investigate, you can retrieve data from the endpoints, you can ask help from your partners, etc. If its a False Positive, you can create an exception to exclude similar events, so they will not appear anymore on the GUI.
