Wildfire block confusion

All 3 are using same antivirus profile.  While the informational shows as block, high shows as allow. Its only for smtp that .exe files are set to be blocked. All is set to drop.

Re: Wildfire block confusion

Wildfire submissions with a corresponding action of "block" are considered to be informational severity alerts given that the threat was successfully blocked.  You should see a corresponding Threat Log which logged the block for this file with either a threat type of "wildfire-virus" or "virus".

 

Wildfire submissions with a corresponding action of "allow" are considered to be high severity alerts given that the threat was allowed (i.e. no Threat ID existed at the time of detection to block the malicious file).

Re: Wildfire block confusion

Hi Team,

 

Have some queries regarding this.

 

Since the Firewall didn't have the Threat id,  the mail or the Traffic was allowed to pass through to the destination?

And the severity is high because we didn't have a Threat-id for it.

 

And we see the verdict as malicious but the traffic action is allow.

This means the verdict was done by the Public cloud wildfire after the traffic which has been allowed.

Yes. To the one question. And I confirm your statements. That's correct.

Re: Wildfire block confusion

Hello everyone!

 

How can I block traffic until the verdict of Wildfire? Is there a way to do it?

 

Regards.
