Hi,

We have upgraded Enterprise Security from 4.5.2. to 4.7.1. After the upgrade we are getting two types of error message in our environment.
Type 1:

Type 2:

We had this same issue after upgrade to 4.7.0 - Splunk Support advised it was a bug in this version and provided the following fix, which worked for us -

I'm seeing 3 of the iblocklist* ones too, along with malware_domains. Our ES is running on Splunk Cloud
