Wildfire Virus detected on firewall but not on Wildfire Portal

Hi,

 

the file t32.exe is considered as wildfire-virus Win32.WPCGeneric.cnp and blocked on the firewall.

But when checking this file on Virustotal and eu.wildfire.paloaltonetworks.com/wildfire/ it is considered as benign.

The file is part of the pip wheel https://pypi.org/project/pip/20.1/#files.

 

What could  cause this behaviour? I have the latest wildfire updates installed on the firewall.

@FMueller,

I'd recommend reaching out to TAC and creating a false-positive report. The generic signatures are exactly that, generic. When you submit a file to WildFire it actually goes through a full sandbox analysis and these generic signatures really aren't used.
