Threat False Positives?

L3 Networker

Our threat logs are full of 'Fallout Exploit Kit Detection' this morning from many of our networks, although no actul issues have been found.




Agreed, no one is perfect. I usually have a 24 hour threshold on any new signatures for app/threat.

Same here. PaloAlto 5050 with Application and Threat Version 8077-5070.

Many critical threat log entrys with name-of-threatid eq 'Fallout Exploit Kit Detection' as false-positives.

I looked at the js files being flagged. there must be something in them that is a close match. since these are not critial .js files I am leaving the block in place for now. Has anyone reported this to PA yet?

I just opened a case with PA to see what they say. So far it's creating an issue for one website we use, blocking a particular js file from loading and rendering the website inoperable. 


8078 was just released that is suppose to address the issue. 

8078 is working for us.
