CLI Location command not showing the location of the IP address

L1 Bithead

Today I found that Application and Thread ID 8559-7361 is incorrectly categorizing US IP address as if they were from China and therefore blocking all the traffic to these destinations. The only way to fix the issue was to revert back to version 8558-7356 from 4/18/22.

What is the reason for such behavior?

Additionally, if I run the same command from another firewall I don't get any location as you can see below:


Any ideas why is this happening?


Thanks in advance.


Best regards,
