Opened: Jul 30, 2018
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Existing policies do not get updates to the global list of disallowed filetypes.

Impact

Existing policies are not 'informed' of changes to the global list of disallowed filetypes. The policies keep using the disallowed filetypes list that existed on startup (or if the policy was created after startup, then its the list that existed when the policy was created).

Conditions

A disallowed filetype is added or removed from the global list of disallowed filetypes

Workaround

Restart ASM by running the command: restart asm Upon restart all policies get the updated list of disallowed filetypes.

Fix Information

All policies are now updated with changes to the global disallowed filetypes list.
