8 Things to Analyze in Outbound Packets

Most modern malware operates as part of a system. Whether it’s a multi-part kill chain with droppers and payloads, a botnet with command and control servers, or ransomware encrypting files, the malware on the compromised system talks to other systems over the internet.

If you have been compromised, and didn’t catch malware on the way in, you can often find it by monitoring outbound network connections.

In this webinar, Randy Franklin Smith, Windows Security Subject Matter Expert, and Rob McGovern, Sr. Technical Product Manager at LogRhythm, discuss the top 8 things to analyze in outbound connections from your network to the Internet.

The duo also shows you how Network Monitor tools can help you improve your network analysis and forensics capabilities.

Join this webcast to learn how monitoring your network can help you detect and investigate potential malicious behavior within your IT environment.

  • Threat Hunting Overview with 7 Common Hunts Dec 20 2018 6:00 pm UTC 96 mins
    Nathan "Q" Quist (LogRhythm) and Randy Franklin Smith (UWS)
    Dabble or Deep Dive: 7 Different Threat Hunts You Can Do With Available Resources

    In this real training for free session, we will discuss the minimum toolset and data requirements (and not necessarily volume) you need for successful threat hunting. We will take into account that while some of you can devote most of your time to threat hunting, most of us have limited time and resources for this activity. The good news is that threat hunting is flexible and anyone can do it, ranging from a few hours a week to full-time.

    As just one example, a great type of threat hunting is to look for unrecognized/suspicious executables running on you network. You can dip your toe in the water with this type of hunt with a small commitment of time and resources or you can plunge in deep with a major data collection and analysis effort. Starting out simple means you just focus on EXE names; baseline the EXE names being executed on your network, and then perform a daily review of new EXE names showing up for the first time. You can get this information from event ID 4688 and the query capabilities are very light. But I think you’ll be surprised what you are able to learn and catch.

    We will take the same approach with a total of 7 types of threat hunting:

    Recognizing suspicious software
    Scripting abuse
    AV follow-up
    Lateral movement
    Persistence
    DNS abuse
    Bait-the-bad-guy

    LogRhythm is sponsoring this real training for free event and Nathan Quist (aka “Q”) is helping me on this event. Q is LogRythm’s Threat Research Engineer and works with LogRhythm’s internal SOC team and its clients to perform deep dives into their environments to uncover threats facing our industry.

  • An Inside Look: Top Windows Logs for User Behavior Analysis Recorded: Aug 7 2018 105 mins
    Randy Franklin Smith, Windows Security Expert (UWS); Matt Willems, Technical Product Manager (LogRhythm)
    User and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) and security information and event management (SIEM) are separate security solutions that can work together to detect shifts in behavior that indicate a compromise is occurring. UEBA is enhanced by leveraging the data collected and enriched by a SIEM, and SIEM capabilities are expanded by ingesting UEBA events for further correlation.

    One of the best ways to understand this symbiotic relationship is to take an actual source of security events and apply UEBA to it. In this on-demand webcast, Matt Willems, LogRhythm’s technical product manager, joins Ultimate Window Security’s Randy Franklin Smith to uncover the relationship between UEBA and SIEM — giving you an inside view of user behavior analysis in action.

    In this webcast, you’ll learn how to apply UEBA and SIEM using data from the Windows Security Log to track:

    - When a user normally logs on
    - The computer from which the user authenticates
    - Additional computers the user accesses

    The webcast identifies the most important events from the Windows Security Log for UEBA and the roles that generate them, as well as challenges in correlation. In addition, you’ll learn about alternative logs that augment user behavior analysis.

    Presenters will also cover:

    -Examples of identity construction from user identifiers such as Active Directory credentials and email addresses (both corporate and personal)
    -Dynamic baselining (i.e., what is normal in your environment vs. a threshold/whitelist/blacklist)
    -Two UEBA use cases: one that focuses on authentication from an abnormal location and another that highlights an unusual time/blacklisted location

  • Optimize Phishing Detection and Response with LogRhythm and Office 365 Recorded: Mar 22 2018 78 mins
    Randy Franklin Smith (UWS) | Greg Foss (LogRhythm)
    Today’s hackers often favor the phishing email as their weapon of choice. Phishing attacks are not only common, but are also very difficult to defend against. What if you could detect and mitigate a phishing attack before its intended target clicks on that fatal link or opens that malicious attachment?

    When your Exchange server is in the Office 365 cloud, solutions such as constant inbox scanning or relying on synchronous mail flow aren’t viable options. Instead, you can find a strong defense against phishing emails in the Message Tracking log in Exchange.

    The Message Tracking log is available in both on-prem Exchange and Office 365 Cloud’s Exchange Online. Message Tracking logs include valuable information about the client, servers, sender, recipients, message subject, and more. If you can access this information and know how to mine it, you can detect likely phishing emails.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:

    - Recognize the format of message tracking logs
    - Pull message tracking logs from Office 365 using PowerShell’s Get-MessageTrackingLog cmdlet
    - Work through a list of checks to perform against message tracking events to detect phishing emails
    - Move suspect emails to a sandbox where you can use analysis tools like PhishTank, ThreatGRID, or OpenDNS
    - Remove copies of phishing emails from other recipients
    - Automatically detect and respond to phishing attacks with no analyst intervention
    - To optimize your phishing response efficiency, LogRhythm has introduced a new open-source Phishing Intelligence Engine (PIE). PIE is a PowerShell framework focused on phishing attack detection and response.
