Anti-Virus / Anti-Bot policy enforcement issue on VSX gateways Technical Level
  • Anti-Virus / Anti-Bot policy is not enforced in some scenarios on Security Gateway in VSX mode.

  • This issue is relevant to R75.40VS and R76 in VSX mode on Gaia OS and Crossbeam XOS.

Anti-Virus / Anti-Bot policy is not enforced on Security Gateway in VSX mode in the following scenarios:

  • After running 'cpstop;cpstart' commands. The issue will affect only VS0.
  • After rebooting the Security Gateway.
  • After 'fwk' process is restarted or has crashed. The issue will affect the Virtual System corresponding to that fwk process.


This problem was fixed. The fix is included in:

Check Point recommends to always upgrade to the most recent version (upgrade Security Gateway / upgrade VSX / upgrade Security Management Server / upgrade Multi-Domain Security Management Server).


For R75.40VS and R76 versions, Check Point offers Hotfix for this issue.

Hotfix installation instructions:

  1. Hotfix has to be installed on VSX Security Gateway.

    Note: In cluster environment, this procedure must be performed on all members of the cluster.

  2. On Gaia OS: Download and install the updated version of the Gaia Software Updates Agent:  

    1. Download the package with updated version of Gaia Software Updates Agent from sk92449: CPUSE - Gaia Software Updates (including Gaia Software Updates Agent) - section "(3) Latest build of CPUSE and What's New".

    2. Transfer the updated Gaia Software Updates Agent package (DeploymentAgent_<version>.tgz) to Security Gateway into /some_path_to_updated_DA/ directory.

    3. UnPack the Gaia Software Updates Agent package:

      [Expert@HostName]# cd /some_path_to_updated_DA/
      [Expert@HostName]# tar xvfz DeploymentAgent_<version>.tgz

      Important note: these two hotfix packages have to be placed into separate directories.
      • Transfer the First hotfix package (fw1_wrapper_HOTFIX_R75.40VS_HF_BASE_006.Gaia_SecurePlatform.tgz) into /some_path_to_fix_1/ directory.
      • Transfer the Second hotfix package (Check_Point_R75.40VS_Hotfix_BASE_025_SK92464.tgz) into /some_path_to_fix_2/ directory.

  5. Unpack the hotfix package(s):

    • For R75.40VS:
      1. First hotfix package:

        [Expert@HostName]# cd /some_path_to_fix_1/

    • For R75.40VS:

      Important Note: It is crucial to install the hotfixes in the given order - first 'HF_BASE_006', second 'HF_BASE_025'.

      1. First hotfix package:

        [Expert@HostName]# vsenv 0
        [Expert@HostName]# cd /some_path_to_fix_1/
