Hidden Gems in McAfee ePO Audit Logs

There is no shortage of organizations these days running McAfee’s ePolicy Orchestrator in an effort to combat maliciousness. Much like any endpoint security platform, it has its strengths and weaknesses. One of the great features of the application is that it contains an audit log containing authentication information to include

Finding Reflective DLL Injections

DLL injections that originate from a malicious DLL written to a disk are commonly detected by any decent AV product. Detecting reflective DLL injection, however, are not as straightforward. Malware injected directly into a process using reflective DLL injection typically will not exist on disk. A co-worker of mine developed

Base64 with PowerShell

WMI on Linux

WMI is a great way to query Windows systems without being so intrusive. As of late, I have been dealing with it more and more. Typically, I use a Windows system to query another Windows system but the lack of speed inherit to the Windows OS always has me searching

ELK, the free alternative to Splunk

Installation of ELK is not too bad. There are a few guides online that walk through the processes but you will be hard pressed to find one to covers it all the way through. Some great links to help with this endeavor are: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-elasticsearch-logstash-and-kibana-4-on-ubuntu-14-04 https://www.ddreier.com/setting-up-elasticsearch-kibana-and-logstash/ http://www.networkassassin.com/elk-stack-for-network-operations-reloaded/ https://www.elastic.co For those who

Bare Monkey (Volatility)

I’ve been working on Bare Monkey for a few months now. Bare Monkey inputs a Windows memory capture and runs it against all Volatility plugins and outputs them to a text file. Afterwards, it deletes the generated files that are empty and then compresses the files left. It also creates

Splunk vs. ELK Stack

When conversing about log collection and correlation on an Enterprise level, Splunk usually always comes up in the conversation.

ExifTool (http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/) is a tool that will allow just that. Its command line based but there is a GUI version as well called pyExifTool (https://hvdwolf.github.io/pyExifToolGUI/). The tool

Forensics Posters

Anybody getting into forensics knows its like putting on a pair of glasses and seeing things in a whole new light. Part of being able to identify bad or evil is being able to identify normal. In my opinion, SANS did a pretty good job depicting some common things to
