If there are numerous other violations associated with the request, such as attack signature violations within the host name itself, or HTTP compliance failures within the request, then the suggestions can be deleted and you can wait to see if they occur repeatedly before making the decision. If you know that the host name is valid, then it's safe to manually accept a suggestion even if the learning score has not yet reached 100 percent.

If the sample size is sufficient and the learning engine has reached a 100 percent confidence level then the suggestion is safe to accept.

Hi Erik,

 

Thank you for your prompt response.

What are other cases when it shouldn't be accepted, if any?

Got it, thanks a lot Erik 🙂
