Fix Recommendation

This requires the use of an Antivirus Profile, an Anti-spyware Profile, and a Vulnerability Protection Profile.

Configure a Server Profile for use with Log Forwarding Profile(s); If email is used, the ISSO and ISSM must be recipients.
Configure a Log Forwarding Profile; this is under Objects >> Log Forwarding.
Configure an Antivirus Profile, an Anti-spyware Profile, and a Vulnerability Protection Profile in turn.
Note: A custom Anti-spyware Profile or the Strict Anti-spyware Profile must be used instead of the Default Anti-spyware Profile. The selected Anti-spyware Profile must use the block action at the critical, high, and medium severity threat levels.

Use the Antivirus Profile, Anti-spyware Profile, and the Vulnerability Protection Profile in a Security Policy that filters traffic to Internal and DMZ zones:
Go to Policies >> Security
Select an existing policy rule or select "Add" to create a new one.
In the "Actions" tab in the "Profile Setting" section; in the "Profile Type" field, select "Profiles". The window will change to display the different categories of Profiles.
In the "Actions" tab in the "Profile Setting" section; in the "Antivirus" field, select the configured Antivirus Profile.
In the "Actions" tab in the "Profile Setting" section; in the "Anti-spyware" field, select the configured or "Strict Anti-spyware" Profile.
In the "Actions" tab in the "Profile Setting" section; in the "Vulnerability Protection" field, select the configured Vulnerability Protection Profile.
In the "Actions" tab in the "Log Setting" section, select "Log At Session End". This generates a traffic log entry for the end of a session and logs drop and deny entries.
In the "Actions" tab in the "Log Setting" section; in the "Log Forwarding" field, select the log forwarding profile from drop-down list.
Select "OK".
Commit changes by selecting "Commit" in the upper-right corner of the screen. Select "OK" when the confirmation dialog appears.
