Clear Text Traffic
Fixed an issue where the
reportdprocess had a memory leak.
A security-related fix was made to address a vulnerability that allowed XML External Entity (XXE) attacks on the GlobalProtect external interface because PAN-OS did not properly parse XML input (CVE-2017-9458).
Fixed an issue on PA-7000 Series and PA-5200 Series firewalls where users failed to authenticate when the Captive Portal host session incorrectly timed out after 5 seconds.
Fixed an issue where the firewall used an incorrect source MAC address for aggregate Ethernet interfaces, which caused traffic offload failures.

Fixed an issue where administrators with a custom role could not delete packet captures.
Fixed an issue on PA-7000 Series firewalls where the
Egress Interfacein a PBF policy rule (
) was reset to a null value, which brought down all the interfaces in the slot associated with the
Policy Based Forwarding
Egress Interfaceand caused HA failover.
Fixed an issue where the firewall evaluated URL filtering-based Security policy rules without evaluating application-based rules that were higher in the rule evaluation order.
Fixed an issue in virtual routers where modifying a BFD profile configuration (
) or assigning a different BFD profile (
) caused the associated routing protocol (BGP) to flap.
Fixed an issue on PA-7000 Series firewalls where committing configuration changes caused the management server to stop responding and made the web interface and CLI inaccessible.

Disable new apps in content update(
Fixed an issue where the firewall failed to export a report to PDF, XML, or CSV format if the report job ID was higher than 65535.
Fixed an issue where the
report displayed the wrong portion of the URL when the HTTP GET request was too long, while the
logs displayed the URL correctly.
Fixed an issue where the firewall rejected the default route advertised by an OSPFv3 neighbor with the link-local address fe80::1.
Fixed an issue where the firewall or Panorama web server stopped responding, which made the web interface inaccessible until you rebooted.

Fixed an issue where Panorama failed to push a shared address object to firewalls if the object was part of a dynamic address group that used a tag.
Fixed an issue where, after a firewall successfully installed a content update received from Panorama, Panorama displayed a failure message for that update when the associated job ID on the firewall was higher than 65536.
Fixed an issue where the firewall did not clear IP address-to-username mappings or username-to-group mappings after reaching the maximum supported number of user groups, which caused commit failures with the following errors:
Fixed an issue where PAN-OS indicated only late in the bootstrapping process when the init-cfg.txt file incorrectly specified an IPv6 address without a corresponding IPv4 address, which caused the process to abort. With this fix, PAN-OS warns you of such errors much earlier in the bootstrapping process (during the sanity check phase).
Fixed an issue where the firewall dropped application sessions after only 30 seconds of idle traffic instead of after the session timeout associated with the application.
Fixed an issue where SSL sessions failed due to SSL decryption errors and the firewall displayed the reason in Traffic logs as
Fixed an issue where administrators could not log in to the firewall using LDAP credentials after a PAN-OS upgrade.

) matched a null character in a syslog message.
Palo Alto Networks User-ID Agent Setup

configdprocess stopped responding.
Fixed an issue where rebooting the firewall caused it to generate a false critical alarm that indicated LDAP servers were down.
Fixed an issue where the web interface did not display the character limit (2,048) when users tried to save log filters. With this fix, the firewall displays more information in error messages relating to saving log filters.

Fixed an issue where Panorama allowed you to add multiple entries for the same firewall to a Log Forwarding Preferences list while configuring a Collector Group (
), which caused a commit failure. With this fix, Panorama prevents you from adding multiple entries for the same firewall while configuring a Collector Group.
Device Log Forwarding
Fixed an issue where the firewall dataplane restarted because packet processing processes stopped responding for HTTP traffic involving URL percent-encoding.
Fixed an issue where the firewall mapped users to the
Kerberos Realmdefined in authentication profiles (
) instead of extracting the realm from Kerberos tickets.

Egress Max) higher than 1Gbps for an aggregate group interface (
Fixed an issue where the following Panorama XML API request to show all dynamic address groups did not respond with XML:
Fixed an issue where, when a multicast forwarding information base (MFIB) timed out, the packet processing process (

Fixed an issue where the firewall captured packets of IP addresses not included in the packet filter (
Fixed an issue where Panorama displayed an error message if you configured an access domain with 512 or more device groups. With this fix, you can configure up to 1,024 device groups in a single access domain.
Fixed an issue where the firewall stopped writing new Traffic and Threat logs to storage because the Automated Correlation Engine used disk space in a way that prevented the firewall from purging older logs.
