What do I dio if the patches are up to date?

What is the source IP of the attacker? Internal or external?

If internal, there would seem to be an affected machine still on your network somewhere...if external than SEP is doing its job by blocking.

In any case, SEP is still doing its job by blocking the attempted attacks.

Hi MzSolo,

Defintiely do get those patches applied, and do ensure that IPS is functioning on all SEP clients.  Trying to protect against today's sophisticated threats with AV alone is like fighting with one hand tied behind your back.

Some other excellent advice from Security Response:
