  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • It has been identified that only IPv4 addresses are being
    queried for source/destination geographic location under
    NormalizedEventProperties.java
    This can cause QRadar to use the geographic location of an IPv4
    address for use in rules instead of the actual expected IPv6
    source address location.
    For example:
    1. Have events that are sending logs containing both a source
    IP and source IPv6 address, and the source IP having different
    country as the source IPv6.
    2. Create a search, adding source geographic location column
    3. The source geographic location should be taking source IPv6
    address's country by default, but it takes the source IP's
    country instead.
