Allowing ms-update on app-default, File blocking PE and therefore no windows updates

New PAN implementation and blocking per PA best practice (PE, multi-level, etc..) and allowing ms-update on application default.  However the WSUS server is not able to download any updates and its classifying a PE file as a threat.  The file in question is am_delta_patch_1.249.1313.0_52b04aae0eb450654fc89884b43d10b7ed5 and threat-id is 52060 but nothing matches in the Threat Vault.  

 

Do I need a specific rule allowing windows updates that allows PE files?

Go to Objects ,File Blocking and  create a new File Blocking policy.  In that policy add in Application ms-update  then the next tab File Types add PE and allow . Then Go to security policy in Polices the Security tab and create a rule for your WSUS server and make sure the file blocking policy in that rule is off or you use the new File Blocking policy you created.

Yes a rule would help. Go to security policy in Polices the Security tab and create a rule for your WSUS server and make sure the file blocking policy in that rule is off . Then move that rule to the top of your security policies right under any block rules you may have in those policies.
