What about the wildfire report for your virus.exe file ?


L2 Linker

Do you have a configured file blocking profile ? What is the action set for the file blocking profile under objects ?


this's wildfire analysis report.



i configured action in blocking profile to "forward".

L2 Linker

Wildfire report shows that the first time the malware was reported at 02-24 14:08 and the log shows alert for type wildfire at 22:59 with wildfire-upload-skip since the file has been already sent to wildfire cloud

If the firewall is equipped with a WildFire subscription then it can receive the new signatures within 30-60 minutes; firewalls with only a Threat Prevention subscription can receive the new signatures in the next antivirus signature update within 24-48 hours. Can you please confirm if you have valid license for wildfire? The wildfire version that you have is 26818-33137 and the latest available is 26836-33168.

i try to test this virus.exe about 4 hours. and i download an update already.

and if you look at this pic. wildfire log is show "virus.exe" is malicious but action is alert, not block.
