Filename field is empty on threat log

L2 Linker

Dear Patrons,


There are two IPS in place with following configuration.


  • Objects > Security Profiles > Antivirus (Reset- Both)
  • Objects > Security Profiles > Anti-Spyware (no detail found)
  • Objects > Security Profiles > Vulnerability Protection (Reset- Both)

But we noticed that one IPS shows the filename in threat log (setup.exe) but in other IPS the filed is empty.


Threat name: (common on both the IPS) virus/win32.wgeneric


Dynamic updates are same on both the Firewalls.


Someone let me know what's odd in here?


Best Regards,

hi pradeep


do you have a file blocking profile in place ?

a filename will only appear in the log where the filename is relevant

in a threat profile you are unlikely to encounter filenames as it is focussed on network layer attacks. antivirus and antispyware target 2 different types of threats so one may find something in a file whil ehte other doesn't match or finds something else


without more concrete examples of what you're facing it's difficult to give you a more solid answer
