Go to Objects >> Security Profiles >> Vulnerability Protection
Select "Add".
In the "Vulnerability Protection Profile" window, complete the required fields.
In the "Name" field, enter the name of the Vulnerability Protection Profile.

In the "Rules" tab, select "Add".
In the "Vulnerability Protection Rule" window,
In the "Rule Name" field, enter the Rule name,
In the "Threat Name" field, select "any",
In the "Action" field, select "block".
In the "Host type" field, select "server",
