Note: This is a WebUI only issue.

When using the WebUI console to build new prevention policies, especially when using Protection Strategy, Whitelisting Strategy, in Global Policy Options and selecting File Rules to enter a program path and associated MD5 checksum value, we expect to see the MD5 value displayed in the Policy editor box.  Instead, the MD5 value is not displayed.

No error messages.  Lack of data display.




Known Issue.  No work around at this time when using the Web based console.  However, we do not see this issue when using the server console.  Switching consoles is the only path forward at this time.
