How does PA identity an application as "Threat"

Hello guys,

 

We have an application - "sina-weibo-base" is allowed to be accessed for internet access policy, but when user access to it, PA block it and the "Session End Reason" is "Threat".

 

Does this mean PA consider this application a threat?

 

Thanks

No, it means that a Threat Prevention feature detected a threat and executed a blocking action on the traffic.

You *should* be able to see related threat log entries if you click on the Detailed Log entries (using magnifying glass icon at the left of the Traffic log entry). Once the Detailed view opens, you will see related log entries at the bottom. If you see a Threat Log, click in it and you should get the details for the block.

 

If you don't see a log entry, discovery of the threat block will require additional debuggin through packet diagnostic feature ctd detector. You can open a case with Support to explore this troubleshooting option.
