Content 571 Customer Advisory

L4 Transporter

Application and Threat Content version 571 was removed from the Palo Alto Networks support site at approximately 0230 PM PST on 24-MAR-2016, after discovering an issue with this content update and Panorama stability related to the Correlation Objects feature. In the interim, customers who have installed content version 571 and use Panorama for device management are advised to roll back to content 570 or disable the "Beacon Detection - Dynamic DNS” (ID-6007) and “Beacon Detection - Heuristics” (ID-6005) correlation objects on the Monitor—>Correlations objects page. Correlation Objects work specifically on the PA-3000, PA-5000, PA-7000 series and PAN-OS 7.0+ and VM or M-Series Panorama 7.0+.


Palo Alto Networks is working to resolve this, and will issue a notification when a remediated version of Application and Threat Content is made available. Please subscribe to this document to receive updates.

FYI, it says it was removed in 2015.

Does is cause just Panorama instability or can cause firewalls to stop processing traffic?

In our case it caused Panorama to power cycle until it was placed in maintenance mode due to repeated crashing. There were no  firewall/ enforcement gateway side effects.

I have 5050's and running I have to roll back?

Nope, just follow the mitigation listed in the URL below. I have a feeling this bug will be fixed in 7.0.7, at least I hope so. The work around below will work in the mean time.




Palo Alto Customer Notice on 571:

Does one need to disable the two Corr. Objects only on Panorama, or on all the firewalls, too?

Only on Panorama. Our behavior was Panorama would crash due to logd and reboot every 10 minutes or so. Made committing changes to managed devices hard but outside of that caused no issues. Our PAs were at 571 with no issues.

Andy is correct only on Panorama, the gateways are not affected by this due to explanation provided by Andy.

Glad to see this one has a definite answer.  Was seriously worried we were being DDOSd in some nasty way that the gateways weren't picking up on 😕


Panorama M100s in HA here - once again no issues on gateways, just the Panorama box logd service causing constant restarts.

There appears to be some confusion regaring which platforms require a rollback to 570. I think the question has been answered by the community but I suggest Palo Alto use a more clear format for notices like these. A simple table listing the platforms requiring the rollback would have reduced confusion for us.

Hi ,

I don't have correlation object  feature enabled, still need to toll back?


If it is not enabled than no, disabling it is a mitigation against the bug condition.

@LeptonThanks for the feedback here. We'll take this into consideration for future communications.
