AppLocker rules publisher field length limit

Copper Contributor

Hello

I'm using AppLocker to create packaged app rules and I'm facing a length limit for the publisher field.

I want to create a rule for a packaged app, Package name is ACROBATNOTIFICATIONCLIENT and the publisher is 

CN=ADOBE SYSTEMS INCORPORATED, OU=ADOBE SYSTEMS, O=ADOBE SYSTEMS INCORPORATED, L=SAN JOSE, S=CALIFORNIA, C=US, POSTALCODE=95110, STREET=345 PARK AVENUE, SERIALNUMBER=2748129, OID.1.3.6.1.4.1.311.60.2.1.2=DELAWARE, OID.1.3.6.1.4.1.311.60.2.1.3=US, OID.2.5.4.15=PRIVATE ORGANIZATION

 

AppLocker can't accept the whole text for the publisher field and the last 20 characters are trimmed.

As a workaround I used a wildcard at the end of the string but it's not very secure

 

I don't how long a publisher reference can be but AppLocker has a limit that may need to be revised has Adobe may not be the only one who has a long publisher reference.

the workaround doesn't work, asterisk is not treated as wildcard character as explained 

 

so i'm stuck
