Default Chrome Update exception rule not allowing client update UTM 9


Just wanted to save everyone time if you find your users' chrome browsers updates being blocked and not updating when using the default exception rule from Sophos.

The problem is with google adding an underscore to the path for the chrome_installer.exe

The current regex fails to match and blocks the download.

Original regex: ^https?://([A-Za-z0-9.-]+\.google\.com\/)(([A-Za-z0-9.-\/]+)?)[0-9._]*chrome_(updater|installer)\.exe

Updated regex: ^https?://([A-Za-z0-9.-]+\.google\.com\/)(([A-Za-z0-9.-\/_]+)?)[0-9._]*chrome_(updater|installer)\.exe

Only difference is the underscore added in the range of allowed characters in the path for the installer.exe 

I also added another regex for another google domain which appeared to a backup for updating. 

being: ^https?://([A-Za-z0-9.-]+\.gvt1\.com\/)(([A-Za-z0-9.-\/_]+)?)[0-9._]*chrome_(updater|installer)\.exe

Sure these two regex's could be combined

Now all working for me.
