Spamming Service Requests

Someone must have downloaded our executable and are spamming the service request, I think we have received a hundred requests today and they are not from our customers.  Is there a way to block these requests based on IP or anything to make them stop?!

Re: Spamming Service Requests

Hi @dbrown921 ,

Thank you for your post.

We have checked the case with our dedicated team. 
Please see the below information.

Unexpected service cases can appear when security software runs downloaded apps in a sandboxed environment to check for malicious behavior. These sandboxes are designed to behave like real PCs, so you might even see realistic first and last names in your service queue. 

Sandboxed execution is usually triggered somewhere on the downloading user's end, e.g. by their email service, by endpoint protection software, or by security appliances scanning their network traffic.

One popular product that performs sandboxed execution is Safe Links in Exchange / Microsoft 365 ATP. 

If you are able to change the Microsoft 365 ATP configuration on the downloading users' end, it is possible to exempt specific URLs:

    • Look for the setting "Apply real-time URL scanning for suspicious links and links that point to files".
    • Add an exemption under "Do not rewrite the following URLs" and add your custom Quick Support download URL.

More info can be found in Microsoft's documentation here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/security/office-365-security/set-up-a-custom-do-not-r...

Also I confirm that our support team has allowed up on this case via the support ticket individually.
If you have any other questions about it, please feel free to reply to the ticket.

I apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Hope this information will be helpful.😊

Kind regards,
Yuri
