Memory Forensics with Vshot and Remnux (rogue process identification,2)

We start this post where we left the first one, we are moving now into the analysis phase once we have parsed the memory dump with Volatility and the Vshot script included in Remnux. The current script version 4.01 is running 44 plugins against the memory dump. Let's have a quick look at the plugins … Continue reading Memory Forensics with Vshot and Remnux (rogue process identification,2)

Memory Forensics with Vshot and Remnux (1)

This is a series of posts in which I am going to quickly explain some basic theory around memory forensics and how to hunt your attacker once he has been identified inside your network. I am also going to alleviate the burden of extracting information from your endpoint memory dump with the Vshot script which … Continue reading Memory Forensics with Vshot and Remnux (1)

The right ingredients for Threat Hunting

Threat Hunting and training such as GCFA are proving to be beneficial to lower the internal detection and dwell time. Not long ago we were discussing the long time that was taking to do internal detection and average dwell time but this is currently changing. Rob Lee and the SANS Institute in their GCFA update … Continue reading The right ingredients for Threat Hunting

Book: Incident Response & Computer Forensics 3rd edition

As part of the training I took this year, GCFA ( https://www.sans.org/course/advanced-incident-response-threat-hunting-training) I was given this book together with the course. Thumbs up for the people at SANS again. I came across this book, a lot before I attended my GCFA training however I never bought it, I believe I did not see benefits in it … Continue reading Book: Incident Response & Computer Forensics 3rd edition

Lateral Movement Artefacts

This is a very good and extensive list of lateral movement artefacts by Patrick Olsen. His blog in general is also very good to find DFIR resources. http://sysforensics.org/2014/01/lateral-movement/

Windows Commands abused by attackers (Japan CERT)

One more interesting article about the most abused commands in windows. It is a must read if you are interesting in endpoint hunting. http://blog.jpcert.or.jp/.s/2016/01/windows-commands-abused-by-attackers.html

Intrusion Detection with Windows Event ID’s

This paper is the best I have ever read on how to build IOC's with Windows Event ID's. I highly recommend you to read it, it contains very useful information and some very interesting behavioural examples of attacker activity. If you are looking to enhance your detection in your core network this is the document! http://tinyurl.com/zpggnfq
