Affected Product:  See more info
BIG-IP ASM(all modules)

Known Affected Versions:
15.1.0, 15.1.0.1, 15.1.0.2, 15.1.0.3, 15.1.0.4, 15.1.0.5, 15.1.1, 15.1.2, 15.1.2.1, 15.1.3, 15.1.3.1, 15.1.4, 15.1.4.1

Fixed In:
17.0.0, 15.1.5

Opened: May 04, 2021
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

Enable the BD_MISC log and notice the REMOTE_LOG buffer printed in the bd logs. The date_time field will be set as closer to epoch time, for eg: "1969-12-31 16:27:00", instead of the current date. The same will be reflected in the remote logs as well.

Impact

The date_time information in WS traffic logged to a remote destination is incorrect. This makes correlating data difficult or impossible depending on the traffic.

Conditions

Remote logging is enabled and the WS/WSS requests are sent to the BIG-IP

Workaround

None

Fix Information
