How can I submit a false positive malicious file review by e-mail?

L1 Bithead

How can I submit a false positive malicious file review by e-mail?  I'm not a Palo Alto customer and have no access to the portal or software to follow the instructions I've found online.

 

Any help is appreciated.   Thank you.

Why do you want to report it via email?

I just want to submit a false positive for your review. I am not a Palo Alto customer and have no access to report it through the web portal.

Please provide the information in the pinned post and we can take a look at the file.  

I noticed on VT that this has a VT score of 29/67.  Can you give some incite as to why there would be such a high score for this file?  What is a description of this file?

All this file does is check for the existance of a Windows service.  If the service doesn't exist it sends and e-mail to so our team can take corrective action.  Its written in PowerShell and compiled to a EXE using signtool.exe by Authenticode.

 

Here is the PowerShell script source with a variables redacted for out security purposes.

& {$H = HOSTNAME; $service = Get-Service -Name '<redacted for security reasons>' -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue;if($service -eq $null) {$HostIP = (Get-NetIPConfiguration | Where-Object {$_.IPv4DefaultGateway -ne $null -and $_.NetAdapter.Status -ne 'Disconnected'}).IPv4Address.IPAddress; $Subject = [System.String]::Concat($H, ' (' , $HostIP, ') does not have RMM installed');$PSEmailServer = '<redacted for security reasons>';$password = ConvertTo-SecureString '<redacted for security reasons>' -AsPlainText -Force;$Cred = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ('<redacted for security reasons>', $password);Send-MailMessage -From '<redacted for security reasons>' -To '<redacted for security reasons>' -Subject $Subject -UseSsl -Port 587 -Credential $Cred;}};

 

Any assistance it appreciated. Thank you.
