Traps Agent 6.1.4-h1 Addressed Issues

Issue ID
Description
CPATR-8342
(
Windows 10 only
)
For all Windows 10 endpoints Palo Alto Networks strongly recommends that you upgrade to the latest Windows Update that has a fix for vulnerability CVE-2020-0601.
For Traps agents running on unpatched Windows 10 endpoints, this version includes a hotfix to address vulnerability CVE-2020-0601. When there is an attempt to exploit CVE-2020-0601 on an unpatched Windows 10 endpoint, the Behavioral Threat Protection (BTP) module will detect and terminate the malicious executable.
This capability is available in Traps management service and requires build 6.1.4.32252 and content update 93. If you are using Cortex XDR, Palo Alto Networks plan to have a similar fix in the next maintenance release for the Cortex XDR 7.0 agent.
