Apache Log4j Vulnerability -- Wildfire vrs update to Application and Threat content update 8502

L1 Bithead

maybe question i should ask myself after cup of morning coffee.

Hope you can help...

I see recommendation for Next Gen firewall: (Application and Threat content update 8502)

Next-Generation Firewalls or Prisma Access with a Threat Prevention security subscription can automatically block sessions related to this vulnerability using Threat IDs.

  • 91991, 91994, 91995, and 92001 (Application and Threat content update 8502).

However, I am challenge with understanding if currently have active sub with wildfire should cover the Application and Threat content update 8502? Is the update covered?

Thanks for your input.

The answer is no. You are talking about two different subscriptions. A Wildfire subscription provides you with WildFire signature updates, whereas those related to the Apache Log4j Vulnerability (91991, 91994, 91995, and 92001) are provided with an active Threat Prevention license. You can check the currently installed licenses in your firewall: Device-->Licenses. The link below shows you the different subscriptions you can have in your firewall.
