Office 365 and Cisco Duo: Microsoft vulnerability and IPS/SNORT

We woke up this morning to clients unable to access Office 365 and Cisco Duo.  Cisco Meraki has posted about this in the community, but we can't reply with additional information because it is a service notice.  So you can do this here if you have other apps break.

https://community.meraki.com/t5/Meraki-Service-Notices/Microsoft-vulnerability-and-IPS-SNORT/ba-p/15... 

 

Cisco Duo was probably worse for us, as it prevented users from being able to log into their computers or access any corporate app.

 

If you are still experiencing this issue, turn IPS off, click save, and turn it back on again.  This will get you the new signature immediately.

 

 

Anyone else with apps that broke feel free to reply.

Do we need to turn off both AMP and Intrusion detection and prevention ?

Turning Intrusion detection off and on again is enough.

Thanks. The more information the better we will be off.

ok, so turned  off and on after a few minutes, i did both  AMP and IDP   and all my broke apps started to work again,    in my case all the affected apps  are  in house devs,  so this issue may expand further than just MS apps.

Looking at the thread where this was initially reported, most users found disabling and re-enabling only briefly fixed the issue.

Most users changed IDS from protection to detection too work around the issue.

We saw multiple apps affected. Duo, Datto RMM, Infor, Microsoft, Anyconnect because it uses Azure AD to authenticate, etc... Hated the lack of information in Microsoft's incident and Meraki's posture, the impact of that rule should have been assessed correctly.

Turning IPS off and back on again does not appear to have fixed all of our customers.

 

I think I'll just turn IPS off for a couple of hours till the new signature updates roll out.

We just tried a couple of apps about 10 minutes ago and No Joy!

Even though its way past 3 PM PST and they mentioned that no config changes are required, We are still unable to access those apps and our Security center is still shows numerous blocks to the same signature!
