Fixed In:

Opened: Jul 14, 2016
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

The REST id of existing signatures are unexpectedly modified after updating a User Defined Signature, or downloading an Attack Signature Update that modifies existing signatures.

Impact

The REST id of the modified signatures is changed which may confuse REST clients.

Conditions

A User-Defined Signature is updated, or an ASU containing updated signatures is downloaded.

Workaround

Execution of the following script will repair an affected device: perl -MF5::Utils::Rest -MF5::DbUtils -MF5::ASMConfig::Entity::Signature -e '$dbh = F5::DbUtils::get_dbh(); $dbh->begin_work(); $dbh->do("UPDATE PLC.NEGSIG_SIGNATURES SET rest_uuid = \"\" "); F5::Utils::Rest::populate_uuids(dbh => $dbh, rest_entities => ["F5::ASMConfig::Entity::Signature"]); $dbh->commit();'

Fix Information

Updated Signatures now retain the correct REST id.
