Advanced Threat Defense sandbox does not open URL samples when you enable Logic Path

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense (ATD)


You create a VM profile and then configure an analyzer profile with the Logic Path Graph and Full Logic Path options enabled.

When you submit a URL sample to this VM using the analyzer profile, you expect ATD to scan the web object and then generate a logic path for it. But inside the sandbox, you see that there is no browser screen opened for the URL, and ATD generates a GML file that contains no graph.


This behavior is expected. Full Logic Path works only for PE files, not for URL samples.

When analyzing a URL sample, ensure that you select an analyzer profile that does not have the Full Logic Path option enabled.
