Spyware Download Tab

Setting up new PA2020.  Have upgraded to 3.1.2.  In looking at SpyWare profiles, I am not seeing a Download Tab.  I only see a PhoneHome Protection and an Exception Tab.

What am I missing?

This is correct.  Both the Adware and Spyware signatures were added to the AV signature database.  You can still configure the phonehome protection by severity.

Cheers,

Antivirus signatures were separated from the standard Threat signatures in 3.1.  Spyware download signatures are now contained within the Antivirus signature set and enabled with Antivirus Profiles.  Spyware phone-home detection is still handled in the Spyware Profiles.

Thank you.   I do not see anythng specific to Spyware in the Virus Protection Profile creation screen.  Are there no configurable parameters any longer?

Re: Spyware Download Tab

Thanks for all responses.   As an FYI - The current 3.1 Admin guide, 3.1.2 help screen, and the recent 3.1 admin student guide all reference the Spyware Download tab as a current option.

Thanks again for help.   So far all is looking good.
