Wildfire: How to get a sample of the file?

Hi,

is there a way to get hold of a file analysed by Wildfire which is categorized as Malware?

Regards,

No, the files submitted to WildFire are not released for security reasons.  If your system submitted the file, you can check WildFire reports or your logs to find out where the file was downloaded and get it from there.  Thanks.

Thanks for the quick answer.

In my opinion it would be good to add that feature in the future.

It is not always possibe to get the Malware from the infected system.

Just as an example, the last report stated:


Deleted itself

Assuming that Palo Alto doesn't share detected Malware automatically with other A/V vendors, downloading the file would help to send a sample to the deployed A/V vendor so that they can create a signature for it.
