Just wondering if any Palo Alto versions are affected by this bug in OpenSSL?

Just used heartbleed in the threat name on the rule in the Vuln' protection profile and set the action to block

This forces traffic to be dropped for the "medium" severity threats related to heartbleed in the 430 update.

Effect from one of the online tests will be a timeout and you'll get an event in the threat log.

The target system MUST be vulnerable to trigger these signatures, if you've already patched it you wont see anything in the logs.

Ah, so you made a custom Vulnerability Protection profile then applied that to your security policies. . That makes sense. Thank you!

I've had problems installing on some 2020 appliances, (3020's have been fine)..

I've put it down to crappy management plane resources.

try from the cli...

request content check


request content upgrade download latest


request content upgrade install latest

show jobs id xxxx to see the progress of any of these.

Seemed to work for me..

no probs

Should mention, if you have medium severity threats set to alert in the profile, make sure that the rule for heartbleed is above this! you can shuffle the ordering around in the vuln' protection profile.

I don't understand how this test works. I put my information in and then it just read G0!Go!

Are there any screenshort for heartbleed attack into system ?

Please share ?
