Palo Alto blocking Symantec Antivirus

My URL filter on my PA2050 is blocking as malware-sites.   This is Symantec SEP talking to the Symantec cloud.   A discussion of the URIs used by Symantec is located here: Clients connecting to an IP. | Symantec Connect Community   This specific IP is one of these URIs.

I've checked with Brightcloud, and they have the category as "Symantec".   I am running the most current dynamic updates.  The URL filter updated last night to 4112.

Where is this malware-sites coming from?

Hi Edwin,

I'm not sure where you're seeing the category "Symantec" with BrightCloud.  I just did a category lookup on the BrightCloud website and it comes up as malware:

Webroot, Inc.
