Hello Adrian,

It looks, the server response is matchingwith PAN firewall's signature database. The direction of the Vulnerability is showing "server-to-Client".

You may check the details of those individual threatID from: https://threatvault.paloaltonetworks.com/

A reference document for threat log direction Threat Logs Show Inverted/Reversed Direction for Source and Destination IP Addresses

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Also bear in mind that with server to client vulnerability signature this could be triggered by an attempt by the outside client to use the exploit to compromise the server.  Thus you would not find anything on the server itself but should try to identify the client side of the transaction.
