Where do I find application mappings for flow data?

There’s a flow rule that fires on flow data that is Application = Web.Malware(blacklist).

Where can I find out how these applications are being identified? In apps.conf it is this:

Web#Malware(blacklist)#Application###16908498
Web#Malware(blacklist)#Audio###16974034
Web#Malware(blacklist)#Database###16842962
Web#Malware(blacklist)#Image###17039570
Web#Malware(blacklist)#Misc###16777426
Web#Malware(blacklist)#Text###17105106
Web#Malware(blacklist)#Video###17170642
Web#Malware(blacklist)#XWORLD###17236178

Event ID 3002 — Real-Time Protection Availability

Event ID 3002 — Real-Time Protection Availability

Updated: October 23, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

In order for Windows Defender to alert you when spyware or other potentially unwanted software is installed on a real-time basis, Real-Time Protection must be enabled and functioning correctly.

Event Details

Product: Windows Defender
ID: 3002
Source: Microsoft-Windows-Windows Defender
Version: 1.1
Symbolic Name: MALWAREPROTECTION_RTP_AGENT_FAILURE
Message: %1 Real-Time Protection agent has encountered an error and failed to start. %tUser:%b%8\%9 %tAgent:%b%3 %tError Code:%b%4 %tError description:%b%5

Resolve
Enable Real-Time Protection

To resolve this issue, enable Real-Time Protection (RTP). RTP helps to protect users by examining auto-start extensibility points (ASEPs) where spyware or other potentially unwanted software tends to install itself. Real-Time Protection must be enabled so that Windows Defender can automatically examine the ASEPs.

To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Administrators group, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To enable Real-Time Protection:

  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, and then click Windows Defender.
  2. Click Tools, and then click Options.
  3. Select the Use real-time protection (recommended) check box, and then click Save.

Verify

Real-Time Protection must be enabled so that Windows Defender can alert you in real time when spyware or other potentially unwanted software is installed.

To perform these procedures, you must be a member of the Users group, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To verify that Real-Time Protection is enabled:

  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, and then click Windows Defender.
  2. Click Tools, and then click Options.
  3. Ensure that the Use real-time protection (recommended) check box is selected.
  4. Close Windows Defender.

Sending Email from within a Docker

Hi Team,

I want to send emails via my Apps on certain conditions. The issue I am facing is when the Docker tries to send mail it connects to Email Relay with the docker IP 169.254.x.y. since this IP is not white listed in Email Relay so the mails are not getting circulated. IP address of Console is already white listed in Email Relay and we are receiving emails for Rule response,custom actions or reports . Is there a way to NAT the docker IP with console IP to achieve tis functionality? If the docker gets restarted the IP gets changed and we cannot get white listing of IP range 169.254.x.y in email Relay.

Thanks,
Mihir

TraceFileName parameter not located in registry; Default trace file used is %1.

Details
Product: Windows Operating System
Event ID: 1003
Source: EvntAgnt
Version: 5.2
Symbolic Name: SNMPELEA_NO_REGISTRY_TRACE_FILE_PARAMETER
Message: TraceFileName parameter not located in registry;
Default trace file used is %1.
   
Explanation

No debug tracing output file is generated. This is the default condition of the system. Debug tracing should only be turned on when you are debugging software.

These error events will continue to be logged when you restart the computer, unless you reconfigure the Evntagnt.dll.

   
User Action

No user action is required; however, you can stop Windows from displaying these messages in Event Viewer by reconfiguring the evntagnt.dll in the system registry.

Caution The following procedures change system registry settings. If Registry Editor is used incorrectly, serious system problems can occur, and the operating system may need to be reinstalled.

To stop displaying EvntAgnt 1015 messages in Event Viewer

  1. Before starting SNMP, open Registry Editor.
  2. Navigate to the following registry subkey:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SNMP_EVENTS\EventLog\Parameters
  3. Add the following registry values:
    TraceFileNameType: REG_SZValue: null (blank)TraceLevelType: REG_DWORDValue: 32

If you want to enable debug tracing of eventagnt.dll on this computer, reconfigure eventagnt.dll in the system registry. This will also stop Windows from displaying these messages in Event Viewer.

To configure the evntagnt.dll file for debug tracing

  1. Open Registry Editor.
  2. Navigate to the following registry subkey:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SNMP_
    EVENTS\EventLog\Parameters
  3. Add the following registry values:
  4. TraceFileNameType: REG_SZValue: c:\evntagnt.logTraceLevelType: REG_DWORDValue: 1

VU#768331: ForeScout CounterACT SecureConnector agent is vulnerable to privilege escalation

Vulnerability Note VU#768331

ForeScout CounterACT SecureConnector agent is vulnerable to privilege escalation

Original Release date: 07 Dec 2016 | Last revised: 07 Dec 2016

Overview

On Windows endpoints, the SecureConnector agent is vulnerable to privilege escalation whereby an authenticated unprivileged user can obtain administrator privileges on the endpoint by causing the SecureConnector agent to execute arbitrary code.

Description

On Windows endpoints, the SecureConnector agent must run under the local SYSTEM account or another administrator account in order to enable full functionality of the agent. The typical configuration is for the agent to run as a Windows service under the local SYSTEM account. The SecureConnector agent runs various plugin scripts and executables on the endpoint in order to gather and report information about the host to the CounterACT management appliance. The SecureConnector agent downloads these scripts and executables as needed from the CounterACT management appliance and runs them on the endpoint.

CWE-378: Creation of Temporary File with Insecure PermissionsCVE-2016-9485
The SecureConnector agent fails to set any permissions on downloaded file objects. This allows a malicious user to take ownership of any of these files and make modifications to it, regardless of where the files are saved. These files are then executed under SYSTEM privileges. A malicious unprivileged user can overwrite these executable files with malicious code before the SecureConnector agent executes them, causing the malicious code to be run under the SYSTEM account.

CWE-379: Creation of Temporary File in Directory with Incorrect PermissionsCVE-2016-9486
By default, these executable files are downloaded to and run from the %TEMP% directory of the currently logged on user, despite the fact that the SecureConnector agent is running as SYSTEM. Aside from the downloaded scripts, the SecureConnector agent runs a batch file with SYSTEM privileges from the temp directory of the currently logged on user. If the naming convention of this script can be derived, which is made possible by placing it in a directory to which the user has read access, it may be possible overwrite the legitimate batch file with a malicious one before SecureConnector executes it.

It is possible to change this directory by setting the the configuration property config.script_run_folder.value in the local.properties configuration file on the CounterACT management appliance, however the batch file which is run does not follow this property.

The CVSS score below represents CVE-2016-9485.

Impact

A local unprivileged attacker may gain SYSTEM privileges on an affected machine.

Solution

Apply an update
The vendor has released the HPS Inspection Engine Plugin, version 10.4.1.1 to address the vulnerability.
