I recently enabled IPS in detect mode to make sure that I have all false positives removed before enabling in prevent mode.
One of the false positives is coming from a monitoring system, that I want to create an exception for.
The monitoring system detects "Brute force scanning of CIFS ports".
I tried to create a global exception for this:
Protected scope: Monitoring system IP address
Source: Monitoring system IP address
Protection: "Brute Force scanning of CIFS ports"
Services" microsoft-ds (tcp/445)
I am wondering what is wrong with this global exception as I still see this protection being detected in the log files.
Any help is really appreciated.
