|Applies To||RSA Product Set: Web Threat Detection|
RSA Product/Service Type: Mitigator
RSA Version/Condition: 5.x, 6.x
|Issue||RSA Web Threat Detection looks to have an issue when the semicolon (;) character is included in a regex for a register, as shown in the example below.|
When entering a rule it will not accept the rule with the semicolon. RSA Web Threat Detection will accept the rule entry if the semicolon character is removed.
|Resolution||RSA Web Threat Detection only supports a certain flavor of regex syntax. |
If you look in the help sections you will see a reference to the boost.org syntax that is used with RSA Web Threat Detection, which is Perl-based regex. See the references below.
Look over the documents to see how you could express in the Perl syntax as defined by boost.org. If you are having problems then contact RSA Customer Support and quote this article number for further assistance.
