Symptom Even though Terminal Server Agent connects to Paloalto Networks Firewall successfully, web-browsing traffic generated by Internet Explorer from an RDS (Remote Desktop Services) server, via Remote Desktop connection, is not identified per user. The web-browsing traffic uses source ports included in "System Source Port Allocation Range" of Terminal Server Agent
I'm using MT 3.3.12 and migrating from PA2020 to PA3020. Outside of interface changes, my migration is fairly straightforward. My imported configuration shows on many rules that I have Log Forwarding set with a profile named lfp.default. When I go to create the output config, I am able to move
When setting up a firewall in a smaller office or in an off-the-grid location, the local ISP may only be able to connect you through a cable or DSL modem which requires your external interface to be configured as a DHCP client or PPPoE client. Tip: If your ISP
Would it be possible to add a miner for the Red Hat Subscription Manager (RHSM)? They do advice to use domains name as filter rather than IP addresess  (mainly because they use Akamai's CDN), but we prefer to have that kind of traffic under control. There is a public
Hi, We are migrating to PA 5050's from Juniper SRX 650's and are running into an issue when importing the SRX xml files. The problem we are having is that the NAT rules are not being imported to the MT. any help would be appreciated, I
Threat intelligence involves learning about new attacks, adversaries, campaigns, and malware families through distinct pieces of information often referred to as indicators of compromise, or IOCs. The more we make relevant information available to network defenders, the better the odds are that they will find answers to their questions. One key consideration for leveraging threat intelligence to improve an organization’s security posture is that it must be readily able to enforce new prevention-based controls. Threat intelligence has traditionally been used by security operations centers’ incident response teams. As security awareness …
Researchers said a new variant of the Hancitor downloader has shifted tactics and adopted new dropper strategies and obfuscation techniques on infected PCs. Researchers at Palo Alto Networks are currently tracking the biggest push of the Hancitor family of malware since June that it says has shifted away from H1N1 downloader and now distributes the Pony and Vawtrak executables.
We modeled the Cybersecurity Canon after the Baseball or Rock & Roll Hall-of-Fame, except for cybersecurity books. We have more than 25 books on the initial candidate list, but we are soliciting help from the cybersecurity community to increase the number to be much more than that. Please write a review and nominate your favorite. The Cybersecurity Canon is a real thing for our community. We have designed it so that you can directly participate in the process. Please do so!

With so much content in every direction vying for your attention, we believe that content is now required to respect the value of your time. For this reason, I’m really excited to introduce you to Info & Insights at Palo Alto Networks!
The Hancitor downloader has been relatively quiet since a major campaign back in June 2016. But over the past week, while performing research using Palo Alto Networks AutoFocus, we noticed a large uptick in the delivery of the Hancitor malware family as they shifted away from H1N1 to distribute Pony and Vawtrak executables. In parallel, we received reports from other firms and security researchers seeing similar activity, which pushed us to look into this further. Figure 1 AutoFocus view of new sessions of Hancitor since July 2016 The delivery method …

Thanks to the incredibly talented community of threat researchers that participated in LabyREnth, the Unit 42 Capture the Flag (CTF) challenge. Now that the challenge is closed, we can finally reveal the solutions of each challenge track. We’ll be rolling out the solutions for one challenge track per week. First up, the Document track.
I have just downloaded the VMplayer version 3.1 of the Migration Tool to copy my existing config to setup a new secondary site firewall. In doing so I have import the config but it only seems to be version 6.x I'm currently running version 7.1.x is there a way to
Zero Trust is an alternative security model that addresses the shortcomings of failing perimeter-centric strategies by removing the assumption of trust. With Zero Trust there is no default trust for any entity—including users, devices, applications, and packets—regardless of what it is and its location on or relative to the corporate network. This paper discusses the need for a Zero Trust approach to network security, how the Palo Alto Networks® next-generation security platform delivers on these requirements, and provides guidance on how to progressively migrate to a Zero Trust architecture.

(This blog post is also available in Japanese.) Palo Alto Networks has identified a malware family known as ‘Aveo’ that is being used to target Japanese speaking users. The ‘Aveo’ malware name comes from an embedded debug string within the binary file. The Aveo malware family has close ties to the previously discussed FormerFirstRAT malware family, which was also witnessed being used against Japanese targets. Aveo is disguised as a Microsoft Excel document, and drops a decoy document upon execution. The decoy document in question is related to a research …
