why hacktool vulnerability is set to medium action alert?

L2 Linker

Hello,

I've been looking a history entries in our threat log and it seems to me that most of the default settings for vulnerabilities - "action" are set to low, for example to "alert" - although they classify the threat as "medium" or "high". For example in the screenshot below the threat of this hacktool is set to "alert". Shouldn't this be a set at east to a drop\reset, etc or something that doesn't allow it? What's Palo's thinking behind this?

Hello,

There are legitimate use cases for this software. Palo Alto at times takes a conservative approach as not to break things and allow the end users to customize it for their needs. I always set anything medium and higher to be blocked.
