A new article on the Dashboard Getting Started widget helps guide you through testing the connection between the Carbon Black Cloud content delivery network and your endpoints. 

By using this widget, you can proactively prevent endpoints from silently failing to download content, which could cause rules, EDR data, etc., to not be delivered to the sensor. 

Links to the VMware Carbon Black Sensor Installation Guide and UEX Knowledge Base articles provide context and remediation steps for users who are experiencing connection issues.

Data Forwarder Advanced Filtering

The Data Forwarder has introduced a granular filtering capability for endpoint events. This lets you specify exactly which endpoint events to forward from Carbon Black Cloud to non-Carbon Black Cloud integrations such as SIEM and SOAR solutions.

This enhancement to the Data Forwarder includes a significantly improved Data Forwarder user interface, which includes the ability to upgrade existing endpoint event Forwarders to take advantage of the added filtering options. It also ships a new API that provides individualized Forwarder and Filter control and a validation feature to test proposed filters before implementing them in your production pipeline.dff.png

While this new filtering interface accepts similar kinds of input as you can use on Alerts and Investigate pages, you cannot cut-and-paste queries from Alerts or Investigate pages and apply them directly to your Data Forwarder event filters - the schemas are incompatible and the syntax can sometimes vary. For this reason, the Data Forwarder provides detailed validation to ensure that only valid Data Forwarder syntax and field definitions are assigned to your endpoint event Data Forwarders.

Special note for customers with existing Forwarders of type endpoint.event: The first time you save an edit of the existing filters using the console, we will upgrade that filter in the background to be saved in the new v2 filter format. To continue to directly use the Data Forwarder Configuration API after that time, you must update your code to use the v2 API. The v1 API will refuse to assign filters to a Data Forwarder if that Forwarder instance has filters assigned in the new v2-compatible format. This prevents potentially-conflicting filter configurations from running at the same time on a single Data Forwarder instance, where it would be impractical to represent both filtering configurations side-by-side in the console or in either version of the API.

VMware Carbon Black Cloud

 

This release contains a bug fix.


October 27, 2021 - Updated November 5, 2021
 
VMware Carbon Black Cloud

 

This release adds support for RHEL/Centos 8.1, 8.2, and 8.3 for Vulnerability Management.

 

Improved alert dismissal context

When dismissing an alert for future, which dismisses all future alerts that share the same threat ID, you can now click on the threat ID to search for all matching alerts. You can dismiss all current open alerts that share the same threat ID, which reduces the need for a separate step to clean up those alerts. Additional context related to what a threat ID consists of has been added to the dismissal pane help text.

 

VDI enhancements in the Carbon Black Cloud console

Customers can now more easily view their VDI Clones on a dedicated page in the Inventory section of the Carbon Black Cloud console. The new VDI Clones page helps to give added clarity to customers managing large ephemeral clone pools that typically have different needs and lifespans than traditional endpoints. Horizon and Citrix VDI Clones running Windows sensor 3.7 or later (3.7.0.1533 is recommended) and Horizon Linux VDI Clones running sensor 2.12 or later will now appear on the VDI Clones page instead of the Endpoints page.

Note: Citrix VDI is not supported on the Linux platform at this time.vdi console.png

Golden Images will remain on the Endpoints or Workloads page depending on the products enabled in your organization.

VDI clones running older sensor versions will remain on the Endpoints page until they are upgraded to Windows sensor 3.7 or later or Linux sensor 2.12 or later.

Customers can also more easily see the golden image-to-clone relationship in the console and view all clones for a specific golden image. When the customer expands the golden image endpoint details, a link displays that includes the number of clones that are associated with the golden image.golden image.png

Note: The new VDI enhancements are being enabled in phases. If you are interested in having this feature enabled in your organization, reach out to Support or your account team.

Learn more about the new VDI Clones experience in the Carbon Black Cloud User Guide.

To simplify this process, the Network Visibility Map lets you view these workload connections in a single map of the application architecture.

Supported platforms in this release:

  • Kubernetes platforms - Tanzu kubernetes grid, EKS, GKE, AKS
  • Operating systems - Ubuntu, Amazon Linux
  • Linux kernel - 4.8 +
  • CNI - Calico, Antrea, Azure CNI, GKE CNI, Amazon VPC CNI

Not supported in this release:

  • Kubernetes platforms - Tanzu kubernetes grid on vSphere, GKE v2 dataplane

Results Reporting on Investigate page

The Investigate page has refocused the summary/count of results to focus on the data that you have received and how much data is left to explore. The console reports the number of results that are returned until the request results are 10,000. Above that limit, the console reports the full 10,000 returned results and an approximation of how much data contributed to the result.

Three changes on the Investigate page summarizes the results of your search request:

  1. Focuses on the count of how many results can be paged through
  2. Reports a percentage of your data that contributed to this search result, if the limit of 10,000 results was reached
  3. Presents a tooltip to offer ideas of what to do nextinvestigate_page.png

     

Default time range setting change for V6 Alerts API

To improve the resilience and stability of VMware Carbon Black Cloud, we are setting the default create_time range setting of the V6 Alerts API to one month. Effective Wednesday, 20 October 2021, if no time range is specified in the search request, the API will search through the last month’s data instead of searching through all alerts. Affected routes include _search, _facet, and workflow/_criteria. This change results in faster API response times on average.

You can specify longer time ranges or search through your entire history of alerts by using the "range" field when filtering by create_time, last_update_time, first_event_time, or last_event_time criteria. Specifying "all" as your desired range will search all available alerts. For questions about this change, please reach out to Developer Relations.

This change does not impact functionality on the Alerts page in the console.

 

Threat Reports Bulletin

The Threat Reports widget, which hosts TAU-TINs, has been updated to include a new report type called a Bulletin. A Bulletin provides an initial summary of a newly breaking, emerging threat. This provides faster notification of threats as the VMware Threat Analysis Unit (TAU) is analyzing them. Any Bulletin may be upgraded to a TIN as TAU learns more about the threat.

Definitions:

Bulletin: Preliminary TAU report on newly breaking, emerging threat (no search query).

TAU-TIN: More comprehensive TAU report on emerging threat (with search query).

 

Console Improvements and Fixes for Alerts

  • Fixed Alerts query to not delete entered query.
  • Updated Alerts dismissal logic so that only what is selected is dismissed.
  • Added Dismiss all current alerts checkbox.
  • Converted the Alerts Dismiss for future options to radio buttons.
  • Corrected Alert Details dropdown - dismissed alerts referenced all assets, even when alert was only for one device.
  • Added auditing for all Create/Update/Delete-style operations in all /appservices/ APIs.
  • The alerts page search query handling logic now matches other search pages. Any query that is entered but not submitted in the Alerts search bar will be added to the search if the facets or time window are updated.
  • When group alerts were on, the dismissal modal dismissed all the alerts associated with the threat id. This is corrected.

Endpoint Standard

 

FedRAMP Audit Logs

In accordance with FedRAMP requirements related to transmitting, processing, or storing of federal data, controls are implemented to make sure that activity within the environment can be monitored centrally, correlated with other activity, and analyzed to identify potential risks to the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of the system.

Additional Audit Logs ensure that all read operations on any significant tenant data and configuration are captured.

Example of additional audit log data:

VMware Carbon Black Cloud

 

We have updated the Endpoints page to be similar to the Workloads page. The changes involve a similar location of tabs and allowing Groups to be formed in a consistent manner. There are no functional changes.


Endpoint Standard

 

Recommendations

The Recommendations feature assists in tuning your console and optimizing your environment. Carbon Black Cloud presents recommendations of policy rules that are relevant and impactful to your environment. This feature allows you to review policy rules before accepting and implementing them. We currently provide Hash and IT_Tool based recommendations, and will add more recommendation types in future releases.

NOTE: Recommendations is being deployed in a phased rollout. Not all customers will have access to Recommendations at this time.

Efficacy Improvements

Endpoint Standard customers see an increase in default prevention value. TAU provides improved detections and fixes for AMSI Threat Intelligence, Privilege Escalation, and Credential Theft.

  • Generic detections and blocking of fileless attacker toolkits executing an initial/staged payload
  • Detect GetSystem Name Pipe Privilege Escalation
  • Detect GetSystem on-disk Name Pipe Privilege Escalation
  • Detect Privilege Escalation via High Integrity Processes (UAC Bypasses)
  • Detect Scheduled Task UAC Bypass via windir Environment Variable
  • Credential Theft Detection and and blocking of malicious DLLs and executables

 


Audit and Remedation

 

Email Notification Update

To limit the transmission of sensitive information, the email notification template for query result notifications no longer includes the SQL string that the query uses. The new email notification template still includes the query name, the user that ran the query, the time the query completed, and a link to view query results.query_email.png

 


Enterprise EDR

 

The process event counts on the Process Investigate tab are sometimes inaccurate and do not match the event counts on Process Analysis. To eliminate confusion when performing threat hunting exercises, the Process Investigate tab now shows that the true event count in Process Analysis can be higher. We have appended a + and Help text to the event counts on the Processes Investigate tab. 


Workloads

 

New filters

You can filter workloads as golden images that have clones, which were created by using the VMware Horizon desktop pool.

You can filter workloads based on their signature pack status (out-of-date, up-to-date, not applicable, and not available).


Container Essentials

 

Kubernetes Workload Details - Page Redesign

With the new page design, you can now easily evaluate workload deployment status, risk severity, hardening and compliance state through a dedicated tabbed view for each use case. The new page is available on Inventory > Kubernetes > K8s workload.

 


Prevention

 

Updated Dynamic Prevention Rules

In the coming weeks, dynamic prevention rules assigned by Carbon Black will be updated for VMware Carbon Black Prevention customers. This update will fix an issue where select dynamic prevention rules were behaving incorrectly. We have fixed this issue and will be rolling it out to all Prevention customers. No action is required and the user experience will remain unchanged.

Vulnerability Management for Endpoints

VMware Carbon Black announces the general availability of Vulnerability Management for Endpoints. This new functionality helps you reduce the attack surface and simplify operations with prioritized vulnerability reporting and continuous visibility across your environment. Building on the earlier release of Vulnerability Management for Workloads, this new capability extends that functionality to your endpoints. This solution brings three key values to your Vulnerability Management workflows:

  • Prioritized: Leverage patented vulnerability prioritization data from Kenna Security based on CVE + real-life exploitability. Increase patching efficiency by 4x with best-in-class prioritization that helps you focus on common exploits and high-risk vulnerabilities to reduce attack surface.
  • Scanless: Alleviate the performance issues of legacy vulnerability scanners with:
    • Real-time vulnerability assessment that requires no additional data collection and analysis to be performed on your devices.
    • Leverage the existing capabilities of Carbon Black’s sensor across your environment to gather device and application inventory for vulnerability assessment.
  • Built-in: Deliver functionality natively as part of your extensible VMware Carbon Black Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP). There are no additional agents or consoles to deploy, manage, and maintain.

Full details on supported OS and sensor versions are here.

To install and administer Vulnerability Management in VMware Carbon Black Cloud, follow the instructions here.

Note:

  • This release also introduces support of Windows 7 and 10 vulnerability data to environments with VMware Carbon Black Cloud Workload Protection.
  • Accessing Vulnerabilities depends on your system configuration. If you have the Container Security feature enabled, go to Harden > Vulnerabilities. If you do not have the Container Security feature enabled, click Vulnerabilities in the left navigation pane.

Endpoint Standard

 

CB Analytics Alert ID Changes

In the V6 Alerts API response, customers viewing CB Analytics alerts after 19 August 2021 might notice that legacy_alert_id now equals id

The field legacy_alert_id used to represent an 8-character ID and differed from the standard GUID format (ie. 33bca411-77b6-4c6c-a643-ce9e7f82c742) used across all other alert types in the VMware Carbon Black Cloud. To better unify alerts, Carbon Black Cloud has aligned on the GUID format as our standard for all types of alerts in the product. 

This change should have no effect on user behavior, nor will it affect your ability to search on past alerts that use the shortened legacy_alert_id format. The field legacy_alert_id will be deprecated in a future API revision. 

For more information on this change, see the VMware Carbon Black Developer Relations blogpost.

Console updates

The Vulnerabilities page is updated in the following ways:

  • Under Vulnerabilities > VMs, a View by menu now displays with VMs and Vulnerabilities values. The default value is VMs.
  • V2 graphs are available by clicking Show graphs.
  • Affected Assets view has been updated.

The Investigate page is updated: the event counts (netconn, etc) displayed on the Processes tab and in the right pane represent a lower bound of the true number of events that were generated by the sensor.

Endpoint Standard

 

Efficacy improvements

  • Added a false positive exception for macOS browsers injecting into other processes in specific situations. This is known to have affected Firefox and Thunderbird.
  • Expanded the false positive exception for certain processes writing to raw disk to include some popular programs, including RaspberryPi’s disk imager.
  • Eliminated two noisy alerts for Linux related to system utilities invoking other system utilities. The core logic has been refined to ignore some common user and/or automated behaviors.

 
Audit and Remediation

 

New recommended query

The TAU team has crafted a new recommended query that confirms if devices running Linux Kernel versions 4.4+ meet configuration requirements for Linux Sensor versions 2.10+.  The Linux eBPF Kernel Header Check query results shows which machines have kernel headers installed and thereby meet the sensor prerequisites for install noted here.

You can find the new query in the VMware Carbon Black Cloud Console by navigating to Live Query > New Query > Recommended > IT Hygiene and scrolling down to the Linux eBPF Kernel Header Check query.newquery.jpg


 
Container Essentials

 

New Kubernetes custom rule experience

Kubernetes policy is a mix of built-in and user-defined policy rules to help detect and enforce security and compliance standards throughout Kubernetes environments. With custom rules, you can utilize the VMware Carbon Black Cloud container policy engine to programmatically enforce security, compliance, or governance rules tailored to your unique use case, like workload labels, naming conventions, and more. With the new Custom Rule experience, you can easily craft a complicated query through a simple wizard using objects imported from the system, JSONPath navigator, and a preview of the findings.

You can find the new query in the VMware Carbon Black Cloud Console by navigating to Enforce > Kubernetes Policy > Rule Table > and click the Add Rule icon. Then select JSONPaths, methods, values.kubernetes.png

RBAC Improvements for Multi-tenant Customers

Customers and Partners in a multi-tenant configuration can assign varying levels of access to users for the org in which they were created, and in any of that org’s children. 

When switching between orgs, users can only see the orgs to which they have access.rbac 66.png

RBAC Improvements for Data Forwarder

We have separated Data Forwarder-related permissions from the Manage/View Org Information and Codes permissions into independently-assigned permissions:

  • Manage Data Forwarders lets you create, edit and delete Data Forwarders in their organization through the Event Forwarder Config API and the Settings > Data Forwarders page in the console. This permission is assigned by default to the Super Admin role.
  • View Data Forwarders lets you review the details of any Data Forwarders that are configured for your organization through the Event Forwarder Config API and the Settings > Data Forwarders page in the console. This permission is assigned by default to the System Admin and Super Admin roles.

For API consumers who want to create a custom Access Level, you will find the permission continues to be named event-forwarder.settings, and is now grouped under the Data Forwarder category.

Identity and Access Management APIs

Customers and partners can now programmatically create users and manage access with the User Management V6, Grants V2, and Roles V3 APIs.

  • User Management v6: You can create, update, and delete users, and retrieve details about the user.
  • Grants v2: You can create, update, and delete role assignments for users, or update the access level that is assigned to a custom API key token. By using the API, you can assign multiple roles to a user for a single org, set expiration dates on role assignments, and enable or disable role assignments.
  • Roles V3: Users can identify which roles they can assign in an org, based on their level of access.

VMware Data Retention

VMware Data Retention is extended data retention for Carbon Black Cloud endpoint products. Today, Carbon Black Cloud offers a 30-day data retention standard in endpoint products. With VMware Data Retention, we offer 60-, 90- and 180-day options for event data. 


Workloads

The enhanced search filter on the VM Workloads page allows you to filter on a more granular status of the sensor. Instead of showing only a high level status of Registered or Deregistered, the filter now shows detailed filters such as Active, Inactive, Bypass, Quarantine, Sensor out of Date, and Deregistered.

We have added a field to the VM Workload Enabled data export, which is displayed in Signature Pack Status.

You can now view the vulnerability data for virtual machine (VM) workloads that have a sensor installed, even if the appliance is not configured.

Carbon Black Cloud

 

To improve the user experience, we modified the VMware Carbon Black Cloud User Guide table of contents to match the left navigation pane of the VMware Carbon Black Cloud console.


Endpoint Standard

Alert Triage for additional preventions

VMware Carbon Black’s Threat Analysis Unit (TAU) delivers dynamic, high-fidelity preventions to protect against critical threats related to ransomware, credential theft, file-backed and fileless Powershell scripts, and more. These high-confidence preventions are delivered to all Endpoint Standard-enabled sensors version 3.6+ and require no customer action. To date, alert triage has been unsupported for these preventions, as was stated when they occurred:

alertdetails.png

Alert triage is now supported for these preventions. Clicking the Alert Triage button allows you to view parent, primary, child, and other related processes for an associated prevention. 

Note: Customers with a https://defense-prod05.conferdeploy.net/ console login URL will receive this update on Tuesday, May 4th.

Enhanced Enriched Events details API

The /v2/orgs/${orgKey}/enriched_events/detail_jobs API is updated. You can view detailed Enriched Event information for a given alert, including information about related processes, with one simple search query. This reduces investigation time and allows you to access the alert's associated events faster. For more information, visit the Request Details for Enriched Events section on the VMware Carbon Black Developer Network.

Container Essentials

 

VMware Carbon Black Cloud Container helps organizations reduce risk, obtain compliance, and achieve secure Kubernetes environments at scale. This solution integrates into existing DevOps processes to reduce operational complexity, and helps security teams enforce compliance, security, and governance from a single dashboard. 

This release includes Container Image Scanning and CI/CD integration capabilities to scan containers and Kubernetes configuration files early in the development lifecycle.  Therefore, vulnerabilities and misconfigurations can be addressed faster. It enables visibility into all containers that are running in production to enforce security policies, and ensures that all containers running in production have been scanned.

Documentation

Kubernetes Operator Improvements

Operators are software extensions to Kubernetes that make use of custom resources to configure the Carbon Black Cloud Kubernetes agents. Operators follow Kubernetes principles — in particular the control loop — to install and manage data plane components that the Carbon Black Cloud requires.

The Kubernetes operator in Carbon Black Cloud is a go-based operator, using the latest operator-sdk v1.5.0. The refactoring introduces various improvements and bug fixes. 

Note: Existing installations of Carbon Black Cloud Kubernetes cluster agents cannot be upgraded and should be reinstalled. For more information, see the following procedure.

Upgrade an existing Kubernetes Cluster Agent

  1. Uninstall the existing Kubernetes cluster agent setup.
    1. Delete the data plane by using the following command: 
      kubectl delete --wait -n octarine-dataplane octarines.operator.octarinesec.com octarine 
      kubectl delete -f https://setup.dev.containers.carbonblack.io/operator-v2.0.1
      This command removes the Kubernetes agent from the cluster. The cluster's workloads are not available in Carbon Black Cloud and policies are not enforced until the agent is re-installed.
    2. Delete the Kubernetes cluster agent from the Carbon Black Cloud console. For details, see Delete A Kubernetes Cluster.
  2. Set up a new Kubernetes cluster agent. For details, see Set up a Kubernetes Cluster.

New VMware Carbon Black Cloud Dashboard
 

In security, every moment matters. You and your team need to find the information you need quickly and easily, right when you need it. We’ve introduced a new and improved VMware Carbon Black Cloud dashboard to increase your efficiency and simplify your workflows. 

This change affects nearly all VMware Carbon Black Cloud customers who have endpoint and/or workload protection, except for customers who only have Audit and Remediation.

A refreshed look and feel makes the dashboard more visually appealing. Information is now easier to view and understand. dashboard.png

New functionality

  • To help you conduct faster investigations, all widgets are clickable and automatically filter based on your selection. For example, if you click Linux OS vulnerabilities in the Critical Vulnerabilities widget, it takes you to the Vulnerability page and filters the content by Linux OS. 
  • We have introduced quick and easy PDF reporting. With one click, you can create a PDF of the widgets and their associated graphs to share with your extended team.

New widgets

  • Alerts: See a trending graph of alerts by 1, 3, or 7 days, so you can easily identify an event and see when alerts have increased or decreased.alerts widget.png

     

  • VM Workloads Overview (workload customers): Track the status of virtual machines.workloads widget.png

     

  • Critical Vulnerabilities (workload customers): Easily spot a breakdown of the most critical workload vulnerabilities in your organization, filtered by operating system.critical vulnerabilities widget.png

     

  • Assets with Critical Vulnerabilities (workload customers): Easily spot assets that are affected by critical workload vulnerabilities.assets with critical vulnerabilities widget.png

     

 

Upgrades to existing widgets

  • Top Alerted Devices renamed to Top Alerted Assets (endpoint customers): See the endpoint devices that have the top alerts.top alerted assets widget.png

     

  • Threat Reports: See if the latest threats identified by the VMware Carbon Black threat team exist in your environment. One click takes you to the Investigate page with the pre-populated query to search for the attack, thereby enabling faster investigations.threat reports widget.png

     

  • Prevented Malware replaces Attacks Stopped: See all of the malware stopped in your environment.prevented malware widget.png

     

Retired widgets

Based on customer feedback, we have retired the Attacks by Vector, Attack Stages, Potentially Suspicious Activity, and VMware AppDefense widgets.

What isn't changing?

Existing functionality including filters, the ability to configure your personal dashboard, widget manipulation, and Export to CSV is retained.

Updated Live Response with granular RBAC

Carbon Black Cloud Live Response has been overhauled to help increase security and reduce integration friction.

With this update, you have four permission levels for improved least-privileged access to Live Response:

  1. View Live Response - Administrators can interact, but cannot make any changes to the endpoint.
  2. Use Live Response - Administrators can interact and make any changes to the endpoint except for those actions that are separated into the next two permission levels.
  3. Execute Live Response Processes - Administrators can launch any process.
  4. Dump Memory and Remove Live Response - Administrators can perform a full memory dump and can permanently disable Live Response.

The Live Response v6 API is now available. The Live Response v6 API uses the Custom API Key type. Modern integrations can use a single Custom API key across a larger number of the Carbon Black Cloud APIs.

The commands exec, execfg, and memdump are separated into two new permission levels to provide added security granularity. All default roles and custom roles continue to have the same access to all Live Response commands except one: by default, the Level 2 Analyst role no longer has the permissions to run these commands.

For more information, see Live Response API releasing v6: now with granular RBAC! on the Carbon Black Cloud User Exchange.

RBAC improvements for Workload Management

Image Scanning permissions: Scan Workload Image and Manage Image Vulnerability Exceptions let you create custom access levels to generate API keys for different use cases (for example, scan images in the cloud).

RBAC improvements for VMware Workspace ONE Intelligence

Carbon Black Cloud and Workspace ONE Intelligence have updated the existing integration to be more seamless, thereby building towards VMware’s vision of Intrinsic Security. 

A new Access Level named VMware Workspace ONE Intelligence can be used to generate API Keys that enable Workspace ONE Intelligence to ingest richer Carbon Black Cloud telemetry and to remediate incidents through SOAR workflows.

Data Forwarder Configuration User Interface

The Carbon Black Cloud Data Forwarder (previously known as the Event Forwarder) now offers a Data Forwarder settings page. This page lets you easily add and configure data forwarders that you previously had to set up using the Event Forwarder Configuration API.

  • The Data Forwarder page eliminates the need to create a custom API Access Level and a custom API Key.
  • Integrated health check access confirms that the AWS S3 bucket is ready to start receiving forwarded Carbon Black Cloud data, whether you enable the forwarder immediately or not.
  • You must set up and configure the AWS S3 bucket to store the forwarded events, including applying the appropriate Bucket Policy.
  • These steps are documented in the Data Forwarder Setup Guide.

You can find this page under Settings > Data Forwarder.

data forwarder.png

To set up a new Forwarder, click the Add Forwarder button and configure the parameters:add forwarder.png


Endpoint Standard

 

Efficacy improvements

  • Added better TTP tagging for rundll32.exe turning off registry keys that control logging of certain behavior.
  • False positive reductions for CCleaner, LogMeIn, Kaseya, and Firefox performing behaviors that are normally suspicious.

Container Essentials

 

A new permission, View Image and Manage Image Exceptions, provides developers with limited access to container image information and vulnerability exceptions. A new role called Kubernetes Security Developer has been added, together with the super-admin role adjustment to include the newly added permission.

Carbon Black Cloud’s upcoming Container Image Scanning capability introduces a new command-line interface (CLI) utility for customers to interact with the new suite of features. To support the utility’s interaction with Carbon Black Cloud, a new Access Level named Container Image Command Line Interface generates API keys that enable it to scan container images and validate them against customizable security policies.

Efficacy improvements
 
  • Linux: new detections for cryptojacking behavior where malware would attempt to quietly mine cryptocurrency, particularly Monero, on endpoints.
  • Linux: new detections for fileless attacks, refocusing from a broad approach to specific suspicious behaviors, such as encoded commands and executing from command line arguments.

Container Essentials
 
New Kubernetes Security DevOps (View Only) Role
 
A new Kubernetes Security DevOps Role (View Only) includes the existing View Kubernetes security permission to support limited access to the containers and Kubernetes workloads security.
kubernetes view only role.png

 

Improved Kubernetes Workload policy exceptions
 

We added the ability to dynamically exclude Kubernetes workloads from policy rules using an exact or partial match for the workload name. With Policy Dynamic Exception, an exception can apply to all instances of a workload within the selected scope. This supports policies per application (namespaces) that are deployed across many clusters like Kube-system.container.png

Carbon Black Cloud
 
Voice of the customer
 
Idea Central in the Carbon Black User Exchange was the primary tool for feature request submissions. This was depreciated on February 22, 2021, and a link to the Voice of the Customer space takes its place. Instructions on how to use the Voice of the Customer page are linked in the former Idea Central location.
The Voice of the Customer process for Carbon Black Cloud feature requests has the following effects:
 
  • Increase customer visibility for the top requested features.
  • Communicate updates regularly on requested features to interested customers.
  • Increase visibility into requests we’ve chosen to archive and why.
  • Allow customers to weigh in on items outside of highly requested items.

The Voice of the Customer page creates an improved forum for customers to track progress on features that are in development. It provides additional opportunities for customers to provide feedback during development.


Endpoint Standard
 
Unknown binary analysis is enabled by default for new customers in Standard and Advanced policies
 
Note: This policy change applies to new customers only. No policy settings of existing customers have been changed.
 
The Submit unknown binaries for analysis by Avira feature on the Policies > Sensor page is now enabled by default for new Endpoint Standard organizations. Submitting unknown binaries improves prevention efficacy against new forms of malware by allowing for additional automated threat analysis and reputation context. When enabled, binaries with a NOT_LISTED reputation are submitted to Avira for cloud analysis. The file must be a portable executable (such as a .exe or .dll). Document files, such as PDFs, text files, pictures, spreadsheets, and other personal files are never uploaded. Files are analyzed automatically without any human interaction and Avira does not share uploaded unknown binaries with any third-parties. You can opt out at any time.
 

For existing customers: 

VMware Carbon Black strongly recommends that you enable this feature to ensure your organization is protected against new malware and other potentially harmful unknown binaries. This feature significantly assists in classifying new malware and increases reputation efficacy. Customers who want to prevent uploads from sensitive file paths or locations can do so in Policies > Prevention > Uploads.

Efficacy improvements
 
  • Added new Linux detections, including some detections for the Shellshock bug family.
  • Refined many Solarwinds-related detections based on customer false positives.
  • Tuned down some of the monitored/observed alerts for Linux to reduce noise.
  • New prevention capabilities focusing on Emotet document TTPs. This prevention rule targets Office documents that contain macros that leverage WMI to evade process lineage detection and prevention rules. Note that this rule requires Windows 10 and Office 365/2019 and later versions.
  • New Detection/Prevention heuristics for the following:
    • Behaviors related to tools that can dump the memory of running processes to disk via scripting languages like PowerShell, and known keylogging capabilities that can be run in PowerShell.
    • Targeting highly suspect ransomware behaviors that can be executed with scripting languages like PowerShell.

 


Enterprise EDR
 
  • On the Watchlists page, you can now differentiate between watchlist types (third party feeds or custom watchlists) at a glance. Sorting watchlists by type is also added.
  • To improve page performance, the Investigate and Process Analysis pages now include an exponential backoff when retrieving search results. The backoff timing is calibrated to align with average search completion times.

February 8, 2021
 
January 27, 2021
 
Endpoint Standard
 

The Reputation Overrides API is now available for Endpoint Standard customers. This API enables customers and partners to automate the management of hashes, certificates and IT Tools to their organization's Allow List or Banned List:

  • The operations you perform with this API are reflected in the Reputations page in the Carbon Black Cloud console, and in the Deny/Block, Terminate, or Allow reactions performed by Endpoint Standard sensors.
  • You can add, edit, delete, search, and export reputation override records for your organization.
  • Requirements: this API is currently supported for Endpoint Standard customers.
    • In the future, this API will be supported for customers who have Enterprise EDR but not Endpoint Standard. Until then, Enterprise EDR-only customers can manage their organization's reputation overrides; however, such reputation override configurations will have no effect on CBC sensor enforcement of banned hashes.

Notes:

  • The values used on request and response for the sha256 field are currently named BLACK_LIST and WHITE_LIST; they will be updated later this year in accordance with our Eliminating Offensive Terminology announcement in 2020.
  • This API will be integrated soon into the Reputation page on the Carbon Black Cloud console.
  • See API documentation on Developer Network.

Endpoint Standard
 
Efficacy improvements
 
Credential Access Preventions
 
In early January, Endpoint Standard customers received new default behavioral preventions associated with Credential Access. The focus for this release was living off the land techniques that could access the memory of the lsass process on Windows. This is a common in-memory password storage location targeted by malicious actors.
 
You must upgrade to the Windows 3.6 sensor version to take advantage of this added prevention efficacy due to new technology introduced in that sensor version.
 
SUNBURST updates
 
VMware Carbon Black has been actively monitoring all information related to the FireEye/Solarwinds security incident. We are actively deploying new adjustments to the Carbon Black Cloud and will continue to make additional updates as information becomes available. Efficacy improvements are analyzed and deployed in real-time as information is received and analyzed; therefore, this section will primarily focus on improvements that have already been deployed. Refer to the TAU-TINs for more detailed information about these incidents.

Carbon Black Cloud
 
Event Forwarder filtering
 

Newly added filters enable defined datasets to be exported and integrated into other systems and tools. By using these filters, you can:

Reduce the volume of data that is transported through the Event Forwarder to your S3 bucket.

Be more prescriptive about the context that you are pulling in from the Carbon Black Cloud console.

Create multiple Event Forwarders to achieve more advanced use cases.

Carbon Black Cloud customers who are using the Event Forwarder now have additional capabilities to filter the endpoint.event dataset. Users of the Event Forwarder can filter on Event Origin, Event Type, Alert ID and/or Sensor Action. For complete documentation, see the Carbon Black Cloud Event Forwarder page on the VMware Carbon Black Developer Network.

Platform search API

The Platform Search API and documentation are now available. Major changes include the following:

Expanding support of our SaaS-native Search API that is used in Enterprise EDR to include Endpoint Standard customers who are on the Unified Platform Experience.

Adding Developer Network documentation in the Platform APIs category. This refreshed and expanded documentation covers:

Expanded documentation of all request and response fields for each endpoint in the Processes and Enriched Events categories, as well as rich examples.

Expanded documentation for every available search field, specifying which fields are searchable, which fields can be returned from specific API endpoints, the complete list of possible values for each enum field, and which sensor versions and products are required (for those fields that are limited to specific products or sensors).

Preview for three new additions to the Platform Search API:

Process Details — returns all available data about one or more specified processes on your managed assets.

Enriched Event Details — returns all available data about one or more specified events on your managed assets.

V2 of the Summary endpoint — improved fidelity of returned data that includes the ability to narrow your request to specific time ranges.

MITRE TID mapping updates
 

MITRE officially released version 7 of their ATT&CK Framework in July 2020, which included support for sub-techniques. Our threat research team has been working diligently to update our in-product mappings to this new format, so that organizations using MITRE can easily map events in their Carbon Black Cloud solutions to the updated framework. We are happy to announce that the following products are now mapped to these new MITRE ATT&CK technique IDs:

Enterprise EDR

Endpoint Standard

For more context from MITRE on why this change was necessary, exact details of the changes, and a comprehensive definition of sub-techniques, see the following detailed blog post from the MITRE ATT&CK team:  https://medium.com/mitre-attack/attack-with-sub-techniques-is-now-just-attack-8fc20997d8de

Retention policy change
 

Updated October 20, 2020

A scheduled config change was released to update our retention policy for notification data downloaded using the API endpoint /integrationServices/v3/notifications

Notifications provide a queue of recent alerts; to ensure continued reliability and scale, the Notifications will now age out after one week. Customers using this endpoint must poll frequently enough to retrieve their notifications within that window, or utilize one of the other mechanisms available to retrieve this data.

Use the Event Forwarder to stream alerts to your own S3 bucket, where you can control retention.

Use the Alerts v6 API to search up to 180 days of historical alert data.

Endpoint Standard

 
Efficacy improvements
 

This section of the release notes highlights enhancements that Carbon Black is making to prevention policies. These proactively strengthen our defenses based on recent threat intelligence, and deliver a better user and product experience.

In this release, we’ve made several updates to our detection/alerting processes to reduce the number of false positive alerts that standard business applications and processes generate. These changes should reduce the number of alerts that you receive, thereby allowing you to focus your security resources on priority threats. These updates include improved analytics logic to reduce alert volume that is associated with frequent, benign behaviors from the following:

IT tools that are commonly leveraged on the Windows operating system.

Remote support software from certain hardware vendors.

Software that simplifies non-persistent (VDI) Windows computing environments.


October 12, 2020

 

Enterprise EDR
 
Individual Investigate links for each query in a Watchlist IOC
 

It is possible (although not recommended) to create a single IOC in a Watchlist Report that contains multiple comma-separated queries.

The Watchlist Report page previously provided one Investigate link that searched on the first query. This page will now separate out the queries in a single IOC and provide an Investigate button for each query.

For example:Multi-query IOC.png

 


September 28, 2020

 

Enterprise EDR
 
New proxy connection data
 

This feature is available for Carbon Black Cloud Windows sensors version 3.6 or later.

Where an unencrypted HTTP proxy is explicitly configured on a Windows endpoint, two additional sets of data appear on the Process Analysis page:

The IP address and port of the intermediary device (proxy server)

Subsequent netconn connections to proxied destinations

In the following example, the first event is a traditional netconn event type, followed by proxied requests that are routed through the HTTP intermediary. These are classified as netconn_proxy event types.Netconn_proxy events.png

Note: This mechanism does not always detect a proxy server, but will sometimes detect another form of HTTP-intercepting intermediary network device.

This reporting mechanism interprets specific HTTP headers to report new data when certain combinations of httpRequest and httpHost headers are detected; that is, only when the httpHost header is populated AND only when the httpRequest is an absolute URI.

For example, "httpRequest": "GET / HTTP/1.1" is reported as a traditional netconn. However, "httpRequest": "GET https://carbonblack.com HTTP/1.1" will now be reported using the new mechanism.

Support does not extend to encrypted proxy servers (e.g. proxy servers that use the HTTPS protocol), or to transparent proxies (devices that transparently redirect requests to external destinations).

New search fields
 

The following fields are now available for searching on the Process Analysis page search bar:

netconn_proxy_port

netconn_proxy_ipv4

netconn_proxy_ipv6

netconn_proxy_domain

The netconn_proxy_domain field is also returned in the /events/{process_guid}/_search response when reported by the Windows 3.6 sensor.

Filter alert searches by last_update_time
 

API users can now filter alert searches by last_update_time. New integrations with the alerts API can take advantage of this filtering option to query alerts within a given time range. The last_update_time represents when the alert is made available to the console and API, and is a reliable way to capture all alerts in the system.

Endpoint Standard
 
New search fields enabled with the Windows 3.6 sensor
 

The following search fields have been added only for Endpoint Standard customers who have migrated to the new Unified Platform Experience

The new search fields require the Windows 3.6 sensor or later to generate the underlying data. These fields are searchable on the Investigate page (and the related Enriched Events search API endpoints), the Process Analysis page, and the related Events search API endpoint):

scriptload_content - Deobfuscated script content loaded from the filesystem at launch of the process. Can be string, binary or raw executable image. Compare with fileless_scriptload_cmdline, process_loaded_script_name. Tokenized. Requires Windows 10/Server version 1703 or later (see https://community.carbonblack.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/Enterprise-EDR-What-Version-of-the-Sensor-Supports-AMSI/ta-p/89882).

scriptload_content_length - Size in number of characters of the deobfuscated script content loaded from the filesystem. Compare with fileless_scriptload_cmdline_length. Requires Windows 10/Server version 1703 or later (see https://community.carbonblack.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/Enterprise-EDR-What-Version-of-the-Sensor-Supports-AMSI/ta-p/89882).

AMSI Prevention and visibility 

VMware Carbon Black Cloud has extended its default prevention capabilities for script-based Windows attacks, built on Microsoft Anti-Malware Scan Interface (AMSI). The extension of the AMSI integration expands on existing PowerShell preventions at a base prevention layer. It adds protection to all Endpoint Standard customers who are running the Windows 3.6 sensor.

This release includes the ability for the sensor to dynamically leverage AMSI metadata to define and configure prevention logic. These updated high-fidelity prevention rules are crafted by VMware Carbon Black's Threat Analysis Unit to include frequently used off-the-shelf attacker frameworks that are regularly seen in script-based attacks.

As a result of these new prevention rules on Windows 3.6 sensors and above, a user in the console might see an alert that reads:

The application [name] ran a script that attempted to execute content identified as known malware. The script contained an attacker toolkit. A Deny policy action was applied.

Endpoint Standard customers on the new Unified Platform Experience 

Alert Triage for these alerts is not supported. To view additional alert details:

Endpoint Standard customers on the Unified Platform Experience should use the Investigate page.

Endpoint Standard + Enterprise EDR customers should use the Investigate or Process Analysis page.

Endpoint Standard customers not on the Unified Platform Experience

Investigate, Process Analysis, and Alert Triage are not supported on these alerts until you move to the Unified Platform Experience.

For more information on the Unified Platform Experience, see this post.

Full exposure of PowerShell scripts

We are releasing a new feature to help you better understand PowerShell executions. By using a program analysis of PowerShell script content, we can translate obfuscated content that is commonly seen in malicious scripts into an easy-to-read and understandable format. You can quickly translate the exact script contents in the Investigate page. Click the translate button to see the entire decoded script together with an assigned risk score.Process click button.png

The VMware Carbon Black Cloud console has also added improved readability of these scripts through syntax highlighting. The highlighting makes it easier to scan for string content versus PowerShell cmdlets and function calls.

This feature is available anywhere that a PowerShell command line is visible in the console.


Enterprise EDR

 
New search fields enabled with the Windows 3.6 sensor
 

The following search fields have been added for Enterprise EDR customers, all of which require the Windows 3.6 sensor to generate the underlying data. These fields are searchable on the Investigate page (and in the related Processes and Enriched Events search API endpoints) but are not returned or displayed:

netconn_proxy_domain - Domain name (FQDN) associated with the remote side of an intermediary HTTP network device, usually a proxy server. Tokenized. 

netconn_proxy_ipv4 - IPv4 address of the remote side of an intermediary HTTP network device, usually a proxy server. Stored as an integer, not as dotted decimal. 

netconn_proxy_ipv6 - IPv6 address of the remote side of an intermediary HTTP network device, usually a proxy server. Stored as a string without octet-separating colon characters. 

netconn_proxy_port - TCP or UDP port used by the remote side of an intermediary HTTP network device, usually a proxy server.

Update up to 10,000 sensors at a time

On the Endpoints page, select at least one device and then click Take Action > Update sensors. A radio button titled Update all devices matching search allows you to target up to 10,000 sensors for a single update.

Update 10k sensors.png

Sensor update status

On the Endpoints page, the Sensor Update Status tab displays the most recent 200 sensor updates.Sensor Update Status 1.png

In the Actions column of the Sensor Update Status tab, you can stop incomplete sensor update processes, including Pending or Processing. After an update status is Completed, you can export the results via a csv file.Sensor Update Status 2.png

When a sensor update status displays Completed, a hyperlinked count in the Updated column opens a new browser tab to the Endpoints page, where the sensors that successfully updated display. If any sensors did not update, a hyperlinked count under the Errors column shows the sensors that did not update, and the Sensor Update Status tab displays the reason.

If the Updated or Errors sensor count is greater than 500, the hyperlink is disabled, and only the Export option is available under the Actions column. The Export action generates and downloads a csv file with the Updated or Errors count details.

Improved signature data

We’ve enhanced the available signature data during investigations. On the Alerts, Investigate and Process Analysis pages, we now display four fields that are derived from the digital signature metadata attached to the binary file: Signed, Product, CA and Publisher. The locations include:

Investigate - process in the right pane

Process Analysis - right pane

Process Analysis - expanded details for certain events

For example, the data on the Process Analysis page appears here:Improved signature data.png

These fields are populated with data from the Carbon Black Cloud Unified Binary Store (UBS) API, which is documented here:
https://developer.carbonblack.com/reference/carbon-black-cloud/cb-threathunter/latest/universal-binary-store-api/

Known limitation: Endpoint Standard-only customers will continue to see signature data that is available via the existing API. This is also true for current Linux and macOS sensors that do not currently support UBS.

Binary Details page enabled for all Enterprise EDR customers

To enhance visibility into binary metadata, we enabled the Binary Details page for all Enterprise EDR customers, regardless of whether they have opted in to binary uploads on the Policies page. The Binary Details page is already linked for enabled customers from the following locations:

Alerts page - right pane (Process)

Investigate page - right pane (Parent Process, Process, Child Process)

Process Analysis page updated to use v2 /events/ API endpoints

We have updated the Process Analysis page to use the latest version of the /events/ API endpoints, including the Get Events Facet Associated with a Given Process endpoint and the Get Events Associated with a Given Process endpoint. The results of the Process Analysis page are unchanged.

Updates to threat hunting permissions
 

The following changes to permissions in the Roles pages help unify the Endpoint Standard and Enterprise EDR product experience.

The following permissions have been moved from the Threat Hunting category to Custom Detections:

Threat Hunting permission name Custom Detections permission name
Manage Third Party Watchlists Manage Watchlist Feeds
View Third Party Watchlists View Watchlist Feeds
Manage Watchlists Manage Watchlists
View Watchlists View Watchlists

 

We consolidated redundant permissions from the Threat Hunting category into the Investigate category's Conduct Investigations permission:

Manage events

View events

Existing and custom roles are preserved. The Threat Hunting category has been removed, but its previously held permissions remain.


Enterprise EDR 

 

Investigate page adds placeholders to Filters

Until the first results are returned after a user submits a search request on the Investigate page, the console now displays placeholders in the Filters section.

Notification rules alert severity

Alert severity is now available when configuring a notification rule to improve your ability to manage notifications.

Existing notification rules with the type of Alert includes specific TTPs or Policy action is enforced will default to an alert severity of 1 if no other severity is specified. All other notification types remain unchanged.Notification Rules.png

Enabled products are viewable in the console

The dropdown that displays the currently logged-in user now displays the enabled products in the organization. The dropdown includes references to Endpoint Standard, Enterprise EDR, Audit and Remediation, and Managed Detection.skus enabled.png

If a product is enabled, a green Enabled tag displays next to the product name. You can click a product name to learn more about that solution on the VMware Carbon Black website.


Enterprise EDR

Shareable Investigate page search result URLs

The Investigate page URL for Enterprise EDR now continuously synchronizes with the current state of search results that are displayed on the page. Any time that you submit a new or edited search, the page will update the URL in the browser address bar.

You can copy the URL and send it to colleagues to perform the same search from their client. This capability improves the clarity of investigations and reduces time to resolution among multiple investigators.

Carbon Black Cloud

Terminology improvements

VMware Carbon Black is eliminating the use of the terms “blacklist” and “whitelist” across our products and community.

Our first step toward eliminating the use of this terminology is the replacement of these terms with Banned/Banned List and Approved/Approved List in labels and documentation throughout the Carbon Black Cloud. Over time, we will also change references to these terms in APIs, TTPs, and Reputations. To ensure a smooth transition, notice will be provided in advance of updates to APIs, TTPs, and Reputations.

Moving forward, we will no longer permit the use of “blacklist”, “whitelist”, “master”, or “slave” in our community forums. We will continue to eliminate the use of this terminology from our UeX community and VMware Carbon Black products until all instances are removed. For more information, see Eliminating offensive terminology.new prevention page.png

 

Filter counts added

VMware Carbon Black

On pages that provide lists of selectable filters (also known as facets), a count shows how many unique facet entries are available for the currently-displayed results.

This is seen on:

Alerts page

Investigate page

Live Query page - Query Results

For example:Filter counts added - Investigate page.png

Note: If more filter values are available than the console shows, the count is suffixed with a + symbol.

For example, on the Investigate page, if more than 50 processes are available, you will see Process (50+). That number shrinks as you target your search query.


Audit and Remediation (formerly CB LiveOps)

 

osquery version update

The syntax validator on the SQL tab now uses the osquery schema version 4.1.2, which aligns with the schema versions released in the latest sensors. 

Enterprise EDR (formerly CB ThreatHunter)

 

Simplified search

We have incorporated a significant change to search results, consolidating what were often duplicate results into a single search result per process. This change affects all customers who are subscribed to Enterprise EDR, with or without Endpoint Standard.
 
Search results might look different in:
 

Investigate page – Processes tab

Process Search v2 API

An entry in the Notifications feature and a message in the Results table of the Investigate page direct you to read Simplifying Search at Scale on the Carbon Black Cloud.

Process Search v2 fields that are now multi-valued

For the v2 Process Search API endpoint /api/investigate/v2/orgs/{org_key}/processes/search_jobs, the following fields return as an array instead of as a single-value string:

enriched_event_type

event_type

event_attack_stage

event_threat_score

Known limitations

The process_name field always reports as the filename of the executing binary. This is different from existing behavior where customers that have Endpoint Standard + Enterprise EDR sometimes see that the process name = "filename of the script being executed by a script host".

In edge cases where the sensor reports a different process start timestamp between the Endpoint Standard and Enterprise EDR versions of events, multiple search results can appear in the Investigate search.

In edge cases where the sensor does not report a process start timestamp, VMware Carbon Black Cloud now inserts a timestamp when the event is received by the backend. This can create multiple search results for the same process.

In some cases, duplicate search results occur for the same process from Windows sensors that are older than the 3.3 generation.

There are edge cases when Enriched events have one or more duplicate records.

There are rare cases when counts might vary by 1 when comparing the same search results between tabs under the Enriched Events tab of the Investigate page. This does not mean that any data has been lost, but that optimization of indexes has not completed. This effect is short-lived, and can create more recent data.

Windows frequently re-uses Process IDs (PIDs). On a Windows endpoint that has significant process create activity, this can lead to two processes that have the same name are being reported with the same process ID, with process create times sometimes only a few minutes apart. This can lead to cases whereby a search for a process_name:xxxxx for one device reports two search results with the same process_pid. The only known cases where this is true are due to aggressive process ID re-use.


June 22, 2020
 

Enterprise EDR (formerly CB ThreatHunter)

New Alerts page experience

Enterprise EDR customers can now benefit from a unified experience across the Alerts and Investigate pages. This design makes it easier to search your entire environment to quickly identify potentially malicious behaviors.

Improved Searchprocess_name.png

Easy and Advanced Search are replaced with a single, improved search experience, similar to the Investigate page.

Search Suggestions provide formatting help, with descriptions of each search value.

Search Fields are standardized to a single, easy-to-use syntax.

Embedded Search Guide is now available inside the console.

Favorite Searches are available user- or organization-wide for frequently reused search queries.

Alert details

amsi.png

Previously, alert details appeared at the top of the pages and associated TTPs appeared when the row was expanded. Now, all alert details are available in this single right panel view. The following cards are available in the right panel:

Alert Details: Contains more context about the alert. Navigate to Alert Triage, Process Analysis, or Investigate, or take action on the alert, process, or device by clicking on the arrow in the top right.

Process: Formerly known as Application, this process card contains information about the primary process that is associated with the alert. Click the arrow in the top right to take action on the process or device.

Involved Processes: When multiple processes are associated with an alert, view the full list of additional processes together with their TTPs. Click the hyperlinked process name to search by device id, alert id, and SHA-256 on the Investigate page.

Device: Quickly view preliminary device details. Click the arrow in the top right to take action on the device.

Notes and Tags: Add a note or a tag for easy filtering.

Export enriched events and processes 

You can now export a CSV-formatted data set directly from the Investigate page from the Processes tab or Enriched Events tab (Endpoint Standard + Enterprise EDR).investigate export.png

The time to generate the file varies depending on the size of the export. When the file is available, you will receive a notification to download it.export request modal.png

Audit and Remediation (formerly CB LiveOps)

Dell SafeBIOS Recommended Query

Using Live Query, you can now query your entire fleet of Dell Trusted Devices to report on the SafeBIOS verification status. This allows you to extend your visibility below the OS to detect sophisticated attacks that tamper with the firmware of a device.
 
Navigate to the Live Query > New Query > Recommended tab and type “Dell SafeBIOS” in the search bar. Click Run to query all Windows endpoints, or click Schedule to automatically run this query on a daily, weekly or monthly cadence.
 
This query runs on supported Dell platforms (Latitude, OptiPlex, Precision, and select XPS models) that are running Windows 10 with the Dell Trusted Device installed. For more information on the supported platforms and installation steps of the Dell Trusted Device, please see the Dell Trusted Device and Administrator Guide.
 
The query will return “matched” on Dell devices only. All other devices return as “not_matched”. The query will return a number of valuable columns - most importantly, the BIOS_VERIFICATION_STATUS:
 

Passed - Verification passed. The local BIOS passed verification against a known-good Dell BIOS.

Failed - Verification failed. The local BIOS failed verification against a known-good Dell BIOS.

Not Available - See the Dell troubleshooting documentation.

Other columns provide information about whether the Dell Trusted Device agent is installed, the version number, the hardware model of the endpoint, and the last run time of the Dell Trusted Device agent. For more information about this query and the Dell partnership, visit the User Exchange

Dell SafeBIOS - BIOS image capture script

To provide additional visibility and remediation capabilities for BIOS firmware attacks, a Live Response script on our GitHub allows an administrator to capture the BIOS image when SafeBIOS verification returns a “Failed” result. We recommend that you perform further investigation in the case of BIOS failure. This script will help you and your team perform forensic analysis. For more access to the script and more information about how to run it, please visit our GitHub.

Audit and Remediation (formerly CB LiveOps)

Consistency enhancements

On the individual Query Results page, we have updated the progress bar to match the Query Results table, added a Live Response link to the rows in the Devices tab, and updated the design of the icons and content for the query status.
 
We updated the clear search functionality on various Live Query pages to match the rest of the product, and we updated the ordering of the form fields in the Schedule window and the SQL Query tab for ease of use.

Improved technique identifier experience 

To improve the clarity and distinction of Carbon Black TTPs from MITRE TIDS, Carbon Black TTPs identifiers appear on the line below the process name and the MITRE TIDs appear on a separate line, making it easier to view them together.TTPs_TIDs.png

 


Audit and Remediation (formerly CB LiveOps)

Improvements to CSV Export for large results sets

You can now track export progress of Live Query results and download the CSV on-demand after it has been exported. This feature is currently available via API only.
 
Previously, when a Live Query result set was exceptionally large (millions of results), the export process could take minutes. Instead of issuing an export request and waiting while the CSV is exported, the export request now starts an asynchronous running job, and you can issue additional requests to give you a progress update on the export. See our Developer Relations site.
 
Improved filters
 
We have updated the filters on the individual query results pages to match the filters elsewhere in the platform. These filters now include a search bar for each filter (where applicable) to easily find filter options.ResultsTab.png

Improvements to the Sensor Kit Download Window

We have improved the content and layout of the Sensor Kit Download window on the Endpoints page. We have added easy access to the Sensor Release Notes, Sensor Installation Guide, and Supported Operating Systems pages. We provide additional OS version information in the OS column, and have added download buttons for each OS.SENSOR_KIT_MODAL.png

 

 


 

Audit and Remediation (formerly CB LiveOps)

Improved layout for query building page

We updated the layout of both the schedule modal on the Recommended and SQL Query tabs to be consistent and clear by adding headers and changing other minor elements.

We have made it clearer what parts of the form are required for submission. You are now required to enter a name for your query on the SQL Query tab.

Removed the Windows CryptoAPI Spoofing Recommended Query

We have officially removed the query called “Windows CryptoAPI Spoofing Vulnerability (CVE-2020-0601)” from the console. For more information about why and how we are continuing to keep the catalog current and relevant, please read this UEX post.

Filtered sub-tabs in Events tab on Investigate page

For customers who have both Endpoint Standard and Enterprise EDR, we are introducing three new sub-tabs to the Enriched Events tab on the Investigate page:

Applications

Devices

Network

These new sub-tabs provide easy access to the most common views of your endpoint event data.

Applications shows the most prevalent applications across all devices:Filtered sub-tabs - Applications.png

Devices shows the devices and how many events have been reported on each:Filtered sub-tabs - Devices.png

Network shows a detailed breakdown of relevant network metadata of all netconns:

Filtered sub-tabs - Network.png

Improved content on the API access page

The API access page content is improved. We have replaced the Export button with an API Integration and Documentation button to better reflect its functionality.

API_Integration_Button1.png

We expanded the content in the API and Integration Documentation window to better assist you with API integrations. It includes various links and documentation about integrations.API_Integration_Modal1.png

Operating system selection on the Endpoints page

You can filter endpoints by operating system (Windows, macOS, and Linux). Click the OS dropdown menu and select the endpoints to view.OS_Filter_Dropdown.png

 


Audit and Remediation (formerly CB LiveOps)

Improved Query Result page

Based on customer feedback, we have redesigned the One-Time and Scheduled tabs to make it easier to understand the status of your queries. We have improved the readability of the Query Name column. 
OneTimeNew.png

 

To provide clarity, we have separated the overall query status from the device's response.ScheduledNew.png

 


Enterprise EDR (formerly CB ThreatHunter)

 

Changes to Watchlist hit counts

When reviewing the events captured by watchlists, Enterprise EDR previously displayed each individual recorded hit.

We simplified the Watchlists page to show a summary of each of the processes that resulted in one or more hits. We clarified the text on the page:
 

Renamed Hits tab to Processes

Updated the results counter from ### results to ### processes with hits

For example, when Chrome is running and making many connections to Google.com, a watchlist searching on netconn_domain:google.com will generate many hits, but only one process with hits.

We have added a PID column to the Results table to make it easier to distinguish two or more records that have the same Report and Process names. The console now reports the data as Processes:Watchlist Hits UI new.png

 

Improved support for fields in Investigate searches

In organizations that use Enterprise EDR watchlists, certain Investigate searches that included the following fields sometimes led to false positive/false negative search results. This is corrected. Searches that previously required adding a -watchlist_id:* (note the "-" prefix) clause can now eliminate that clause from searches.

"scriptload_count"

"device_policy"

"device_group_id"

"process_service_name"

"device_policy_id"

"parent_publisher_state"

"process_company_name"

"process_cmdline_length"

"process_internal_name"

"parent_cmdline_length"

"parent_cmdline"

"device_os_version"

"process_publisher"

"process_publisher_state"

"process_product_version"

"process_original_filename"

"process_file_description"

"process_product_name"

"parent_name"

"process_cmdline"

"process_elevated"

"process_integrity_level"

"process_privileges"

Investigate page updates

Alert severity indicators
 
For customers who are using both Endpoint Standard and Enterprise EDR together, a color bar along the left of the row for events and processes indicates whether the row is associated with an alert. The color bar from the Type column has been removed for clarity.54_severity_indicator.png

 

Badge improvements
 
For customers who are using both Endpoint Standard and Enterprise EDR together, text badges are added to the events and processes table to indicate whether the row is associated with an analytics alert, watchlist hit, watchlist alert, or if a policy was applied or denied.54_badges.png

 

For analytics alerts, watchlist hits, and watchlist alerts, users can click the badge to get details of the latest alert/hit that is associated with the row that has the highest severity. You can quickly search to see all alerts or hits that are associated with that row.54_badge_pop_up.png

 

File modification card improvements

To help minimize the length of investigations, Reputation and Signed By details are added to the Filemod card. Cards in the details view are now expanded to display all relevant context by default.54_Filemod_card.png

Endpoint Standard (formerly CB Defense)

Malware protection for Linux

Malware prevention for Linux machines in our Endpoint Standard solution starts on April 1, 2020. Initial distribution support includes Red Hat/RHEL and CentOS 6/7.
 
This release include the following features:

Malware prevention coverage from Linux malware

You can adapt policies for your specific environments (by blacklisting/whitelisting hashes)

View context around blocked and suspected malware (file origination, execution details, etc.)

To add malware coverage for Linux endpoints, contact your Carbon Black representative for help in adding new endpoints to your existing agreement.

Updated messaging

We have updated messaging to make it easier to navigate and differentiate between available Linux features.

In the Send Installation Request window on the Endpoints page, we inform users how to properly install Linux endpoints.Linux_Screenshot_1.png

On the Prevention tab on the Policies page, we have included Linux OS icons in the Known malware and Application on the company blacklist rows. Additional messaging signals that Runs or is running is the only option that is available to Linux users.Linux_Screenshot_2.png

 


Audit and Remediation (formerly CB LiveOps)

Additional recommended queries

Eight new recommended queries have been crafted by our Threat Analysis Unit (TAU) team:
 

Secure Boot Status

Unusual User Accounts

Blank Passwords Enabled

Root User Shell History

macOS LaunchDaemons

Binaries with SUID or SGID Set

Weak Authentication Types (LM/NTLM)

Go to New Query > Recommended to run or schedule these new queries.

Enterprise EDR (formerly CB ThreatHunter)

 

Investigate and Watchlists support trailing wildcard in process_cmdline searches

Previously, searches for process_cmdline fields could operate on the full command line or on fully-specified tokens, but not on substrings of the command line or its tokens.
 
Now, searches on Investigate (and used as IOCs in Watchlists) can use trailing wildcards to specify a process_cmdline substring.
 
For example, you might see that a process is launched with the following command line:
c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe -ver 2.0
 
You could previously search on process_cmdline:system32/cmd.exe\ \-ver\ 2.0. You can now also search on process_cmdline:system32/cmd.exe\ \-ver\ 2.*.

Filter selections persist between tabs on the Investigate page

If you select a filter value and perform a search on the Investigate page, that filter selection is preserved in searches that you perform on other tabs.
 

For example, if you select NETWORK_ACCESS from the TTP filter category on the Enriched Events tab and perform a search, and then switch to the Processes tab and submit a search, the Processes search will also filter on ttp:NETWORK_ACCESS.

This improvement lets you continuously explore specified data. You can expand or narrow a search and compare the summary and detailed views of that data very quickly.

Configurable filters on the Enriched Events tab
 
For customers who are using both Endpoint Standard and Enterprise EDR (formerly CB Defense and CB ThreatHunter), you can configure filters on the Enriched Events tab in addition to the Processes tab. Click Configure (...) to select and customize filter categories.

Endpoint Standard (formerly CB Defense)

Speed investigation of TTPs with new informational windows

This release introduces a new way to access TTP severity, category, and descriptions. You can now click the TTP to access relevant information. Click the TTP to generate a window like this:TTP_popover.png

Users can use this new functionality to speed their investigations wherever TTPs appear on the Alerts and Alert Triage pages.

Create_time on alert search API

Alerts v6 Search API now supports sorting by create_time.

SQL syntax assistance

Line numbers and SQL syntax highlighting display in the SQL Query box to improve ease of use and query building.SyntaxHighlighting.png

 

Recommended query for Windows SMBv3 client/server remote code execution vulnerability

A new recommended query for the recent Windows SMBv3 vulnerability (CVE 2020-0796) identifies the following:

If a machine has active SMB shares

If a machine is running an OS version that is impacted by this vulnerability

If the disabled compression mitigating keys are set

If the system is patched

Audit and Remediation customers can quickly quantify the level of impact this vulnerability has in their network. Read more about this vulnerability and our recommendations at CVE-2020-0796 - EternalDarkness (ghostSMB).

Go to New Query > Recommended and search for “SMBv3” to run or schedule this query. 

We have also updated the Windows CryptoAPI Spoofing Vulnerability (CVE-2020-0601) query to include the latest patches.


Enterprise EDR (formerly CB ThreatHunter)

Collapse nodes on the Process Analysis page

You can collapse nodes on the Process Analysis page based on the hash of the process. This action collapses identical instances of the same process to make it easier to focus on crucial information.Process Analysis Grouping.png

 

Adjustable filters panel

You can adjust the filters panel so that you can fully view items such as long process names.Investigate - adjustable facet panel.png

 

Search suggestion improvements

Search suggestions on the Investigate page are improved: the search bar is more responsive as you type.

Improvements on the Watchlists pages

The Watchlists page (select Watchlists from the Enforce group) now shows the final Hits count more quickly.

When you select a subscribed Watchlist, the page initially displays result placeholders while results are being retrieved:

Watchlists - skeleton placeholder.png

When selecting a subscribed Watchlist, if there are no hits for the past three days, the Hits tab reports "No hits detected."

To refresh the Hits results for a selected Watchlist, click the Hits tab.


March 2, 2020 

Endpoint Standard (formerly CB Defense)

OS icons on the Policies > Prevention and Sensor tabs

OS icons have been added to the Prevention and Sensor tabs on the Policies page to show which features are available for each operating system. 
 

Audit and Remediation (formerly CB LiveOps)

Improvements to the SQL query building experience

Significant improvements have been made to the SQL Query tab and overall custom query building workflow. These improvements focus on providing the user with additional feedback while building queries, as well as validation to improve overall query quality.
No Table Error.png

 

Similarly, if you try to submit a query with syntactically incorrect SQL, an error will direct you to the location of the syntax error.Syntax error.png

API users will receive more informative messages when writing invalid SQL queries. You can find the full Live Query API documentation on the VMware Carbon Black Developer Relations website.

We have added OS icons next to the query name on the individual Query Results page to clearly show the operating systems with which each query is compatible and is successfully running on.OSIcons1.png

OS icons will not appear for queries written on the SQL Query tab when individual endpoints are selected (via the Endpoints selector). If a query is incompatible with a set of selected endpoints - for example, if you wrote a macOS-only query and sent it to a Windows endpoint - the query is submitted but will not actually run on the Windows endpoints. A status of “Not Supported” is returned.

We have changed the experience after you submit a SQL query. Going forward, the SQL Query form clears and the confirmation notification displays for a longer period. We have added loading states in case of a slow network. When submitting from the Query pop-up window (accessible on the Endpoints page and on the individual Query Result page), the window will close after you submit the query.
 

“Copy (SQL)” is now “Duplicate”: altered content for clarity

Based on customer feedback, we changed the name of the query duplication feature from “Copy (SQL)” to “Duplicate” to clarify the functionality. Go to the Query Results > One Time tab and then expand the Actions menu. Select a query to rerun on a different policy, a different set of endpoints, or the same set but with different SQL. Duplicate.png

 

Select Duplicate and a window will appear with the original SQL and endpoint selections pre-populated. Make edits as needed and then click Run. This functionality is also available in the Take Action menu on the individual Query Results page.Modal.png

 


Enterprise EDR (formerly CB ThreatHunter)

Process Analysis tree nodes show Deny and Terminate icons 

The Process Analysis page provides a visual tree view of all process parents, siblings and children related to the process under analysis. At a glance, this tree provides key information with necessary context.

The Process Analysis tree now indicates whether the process was involved in a Deny or Terminate action in the form of red shield icons. This signifies that the process was parent to a process that was Terminated after it started, or to a process that was Denied before it began running.
 
These icons also signify that you can find details about the Denied or Terminated event details in the Events table. You can run a search for sensor_action:DENY, sensor_action:TERMINATE (or sensor_action:*) to quickly isolate the specific events in which the Deny or Terminate action was applied by the sensor.

For example, in the following Process Analysis tree, two instances of FIREFOX.EXE include one or more red shield icons:
 

The first instance shows the Terminate shield, indicating that an action was Terminated after it began.

The second instance shows the Deny and Terminate shields, indicating that there were two separate events in which the sensor intervened. One shows a Terminated running action, and the other shows a Denied attempted action before it performed any interesting actions.

An orange exclamation point icon indicates that one or more Enterprise EDR Watchlist hits were associated with the process.Process Analysis tree node with all icons.png

MITRE Technique IDs

MITRE framework technique IDs are now integrated into the Endpoint Standard solution. MITRE is a framework that is divided into 12 tactics and over 300 techniques, which adversaries use to compromise systems and enterprises. For more information on the MITRE Framework, click here.
 
You can search the platform for specific MITRE technique IDs while hunting for threats, and/or use the existing alert notification functionality to flag on any technique IDs that are tagged on your current events and alerts.
 
If an event or alert is tagged with a MITRE technique ID, a TTP with the prefix “mitre_” displays, followed by the technique ID. Technique IDs appear alongside Carbon Black TTPs on the Alerts, Investigate, and Alert Triage page as hollow pills with a colored border, which represents the severity level. Click the MITRE Technique ID for a description and context of the technique on the MITRE website.
TIDs_and_TTPs.png

For TTP and TID severity levels, click the question mark icon next to the TTPs title.TID_TTP_modal.png

You can search for specific MITRE techniques on the Alerts and Investigate pages in the same way that you would search for Carbon Black TTPs.

Enterprise EDR (formerly CB ThreatHunter)

New data in Investigate and Process Analysis

The following event data is now supported by the Windows 3.5 Carbon Black Cloud sensor:
 
New data: Scriptload events
A new type of sensor event called the scriptload event is recorded by the Windows 3.5 sensor. This event captures all executions of filesystem-backed scripts that are launched by a specified set of script hosts. Supported script extensions for Windows currently include PDF, BAT, CMD, MSI, MSP, MST, PS1, and PSM1The scriptload event and its data appears in the Events table on the Process Analysis page:Scriptload - expanded event.png

 

New data: Fileless Scriptload events
A new type of sensor event called the fileless scriptload event is recorded by the Windows 3.5 sensor. This leverages the Anti-Malware Scanning Interface (AMSI) support that is available in Windows 10 and Windows 2016.
 
The fileless_scriptload event represents each occasion when the sensor detected AMSI-decoded script content that was executed by any process on the endpoint. This consists only of "fileless script" content that was not stored in a file on the file system when that context was executed.
 
For example, you can detect when the PowerShell runtime was loaded into another process by malware, that malware obtains encoded PowerShell script content from a remote network server, and then executed that script content directly from memory.
 
The fileless scriptload event and its data appears in the Events table on the Process Analysis page:Fileless_scriptload - expanded event.png

 

Click the expansion arrow icon in the event to display the full-length decoded script content; for example:Fileless_scriptload - full decoded script content.png

 

Note: Support for decoding fileless script content via AMSI is dependent on each script interpreter that integrates with the AMSI interface in Windows. To date, the following script interpreters have implemented support: PowerShell, JScript, VBScript, JavaScript & VBA (via Office365), .NET and WMI. More information from Microsoft can be found here.
 
New data: Process Access Control details
The Carbon Black Cloud console provides three newly-surfaced characteristics of a Windows process access to operating system resources: Elevated, Integrity, and Privileges. These are surfaced by the Carbon Black Cloud Windows 3.5 sensor for any process that exhibits relevant access:

Elevated is shown as True for any process that is/was running in an elevated state; otherwise it is shown as "--" to signify that the sensor has not reported any elevation status.

Integrity reports the process integrity level at which the process is/was running.

Privileges reports each privilege that is contained in the token that authorizes the process to take actions. If there are more than three privileges reported for the process, the console makes the full list available in an expansion window.

This information is displayed in the right pane of the Process Analysis page:Process Analysis - Process Access Control.png

The following is an example of the full list of process privileges that appears when you click the expansion arrow icon in the Privileges section:Process Analysis - privileges modal.png

New supported search fields

The following new fields are supported for searches across Enterprise EDR data that is sent from the Carbon Black Cloud Windows 3.5 sensor:

fileless_scriptload_cmdline: Find processes that executed PowerShell commands in fileless execution context; for example, fileless_scriptload_cmdline:System.Management.Automation.Utils.

fileless_scriptload_cmdline_length: Find processes that executed PowerShell commands of certain lengths; for example, fileless_scriptload_cmdline_length:[50 to *].

fileless_scriptload_hash: Find processes that loaded a specific file-less script by its hash value.

process_elevated:true: Find all processes launched in an elevated state via the User Account Control (UAC) feature of Windows.

process_integrity_level: Find all processes that are running at one of the integrity levels defined and enforced by Windows' Mandatory Integrity Control; for example, process_integrity_level:PROTECTED.

process_privileges: Find all processes running with any of the defined privileges in Windows; for example, process_privileges:SeDebugPrivilege.

process_service_nameFind only the svchost.exe processes where the Windows Service matches the internal service name; for example, process_service_name:wsearch.

scriptload_count: Total number of script loads by this process; for example, scriptload_count:[0 TO 5].

scriptload_hash: MD5 and SHA-256 hashes of the loaded script; for example, scriptload_hash:2d75cc1bf8e57872781f9cd04a529256 OR scriptload_hash:c35f705df9e475305c0984b05991d444450809c35dd1d96106bb8e7128b9082f.

scriptload_md5: MD5 of the loaded script; for example, scriptload_md5:2d75cc1bf8e57872781f9cd04a529256.

scriptload_name: Tokenized paths of the scripts loaded by the process; for example, scriptload_name:malware.docx.

scriptload_publisher: Publisher that signed the script, if any; for example, scriptload_publisher:Microsoft.

scriptload_publisher_state: Certificate signature states of the loaded scripts as string; for example, scriptload_publisher_state:FILE_SIGNATURE_STATE_INVALID.

scriptload_reputation: Reputation of the loaded script; for example, scriptload_reputation:TRUSTED_WHITE_LIST.

scriptload_sha256: SHA-256 of the loaded script; for example, scriptload_hash:c35f705df9e475305c0984b05991d444450809c35dd1d96106bb8e7128b9082f.

sensor_action_reason: Find the processes for which the sensor took a specific action; for example, sensor_action_reason:POLICY_DENY.

Investigate Search shows future events

When an endpoint’s operating system time is incorrect, events reported to the Carbon Black Cloud with future timestamps were not returned via search if the upper time limit was set to the default “now.” 
 
To enable our customers to see all the events reported by sensors, even for endpoints with system times set in the future, we have removed the default upper boundary in all search queries unless the user explicitly sets a custom time range.

VMware Carbon Black Cloud

v2 Process Search API

The Investigate page (at /cb/investigate) and Process Analysis page (at /analyze) in the Carbon Black Cloud console are updated to use the latest Search API (https://developer.carbonblack.com/reference/carbon-black-cloud/cb-threathunter/latest/process-search-v2/).
 
If you troubleshoot by using browser developer tools, the following changes can help you acclimate to the new experience:
 

There are now two separate API calls to start a search in the console: instead of one request to /processes/search_jobs, there is a search request (to /processes/search_jobs) and a facet request (to /processes/facet_jobs).

The query_id parameter is now search_job_id and facet_job_id (corresponding to the respective API endpoints above).

Note: This update applies to all customers who have CB ThreatHunter, or CB Defense and CB ThreatHunter together. Customers who have CB Defense only will continue to have the same experience as before.


CB LiveOps

30-day data retention

To provide greater visibility into queries that were created more than 30 days in the past, we are improving the overall data retention experience in the console. Queries created more than 30 days in the past now show up in the One-Time tab table with an Expired status. Although the link into the individual results page is no longer available on expired queries, you can still access general information about the query - such as the SQL, query name and endpoints that it ran against - by clicking into the Query Details panel using the icon.png icon. You can can also delete, copy, or re-run expired queries via the Actions column. 
Expired in One Time .png

 

On the Scheduled tab, individual instances of scheduled queries that occurred more than 30 days ago do not appear in the table. For audit purposes, we now track runs of scheduled queries in the Audit Log.

If you try to navigate directly to the individual Query Results page of an expired query via a saved link or bookmark, a notification explains why you were redirected.LQExpiredToast.png

CB LiveOps

New recommended query for Windows CryptoAPI spoofing vulnerability (CVE-2020-0601)

A new recommended query that is crafted by our Threat Research team is now available for all CB LiveOps customers. It detects Windows endpoints that are vulnerable to the CryptoAPI Spoofing vulnerability that was disclosed by Microsoft on January 14, 2020.
 
To leverage this new query, go to the New Query page > Recommended tab and search for “CryptoAPI” or “CVE-2020”. Click Run to run the query across all Windows endpoints in your environment, or select a specific policy or set of devices against which to run the query. You can schedule the query to run daily, weekly or monthly to monitor for this vulnerability or track patch deployment. CryptoAPI.png

 

The query returns a list of endpoints and their vulnerability status. VMware Carbon Black recommends exporting the list of endpoints with the status “CRITICAL_PATCH_MISSING” and patching them immediately because that is the only known remediation for this vulnerability. Because the vulnerability only affects Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019 systems, the query will return “PATCH_NOT_APPLICABLE” for any Windows devices that are not affected (for example, endpoints that are running Windows 7).RQcrpytoapi-results.png

To read more about this vulnerability and how Live Query assists with vulnerability management, see Using Live Query to Audit Your Environment for the Windows CryptoAPI Spoofing Vulnerability (CVE-2020-0601).

 

APIs for scheduled queries

The full suite of REST API routes to schedule and manage scheduled queries is now fully documented and publicly available on our Developer Relations website.

Event Forwarder

The Carbon Black Cloud Event Forwarder is a service that taps into data streams within the platform, and transports, transforms, and translates endpoint data to a customer’s receiver. It is a mechanism to push data from our platform to an external system.
 
This initial release delivers the following capabilities:

Unified architecture supports all Carbon Black Cloud products through a single Event Forwarder

Endpoint event forwarding for CB Defense and CB ThreatHunter events to a defined customer-provided Amazon S3 bucket

Data translation and transformation for converting the raw data sent by the endpoints into more consumable formats

Self-service capabilities to create, edit, disable, enable, and delete forwarder configurations via APIs

Multi-destination forwarding to allow events to be sent to one or more S3 buckets

Documentation will be available in the Developer Network space of the UEX and on the Developer Network website shortly following this release.

Specialized event cards

Event cards for each event type provided needed information without having to navigate throughout the product. The supported event types are childproc, netconn, filemod, crossproc, and regmod. This capability is only available for customers who have both CB ThreatHunter and CB Defense.

CB Defense

Improvements to dismissing grouped alerts

Number of alerts in an alert group now displays in the Device column.

When dismissing an alert group, the total number of alerts that are being dismissed is displayed.

Audit log contains the total number of alerts that are dismissed with the request.

Detection analytics improvements

Improved detection of attacks that leverage malicious applications to bypass user account controls and elevate privileges. This is part of our continued effort to expose attackers using Living off the Land techniques - that is, attackers that use native applications for malicious purposes.

We’ve reduced high-impact false positives related to Windows Explorer injecting into common Windows processes. This particular form of injection is in the top 3 most prevalent reasons for injection false positives. With fewer false positives occurring in the dashboard, customers can focus on important threats faster.

The following list of improvements provides additional details:

Type Name Description
Enhanced detection User Account Control Bypass Enhanced detection of certain native Windows applications escalate privileges and bypass User Account Control.
False positive Injection Eliminated false positive alerts related to an uncompromised explorer.exe injecting into common Windows processes.
 

CB LiveOps

Schedule a query

You can now schedule a query. To schedule a daily, weekly or monthly query, go to Live Query > New Query, click either the Recommended or SQL Query tab, and click the Schedule button. Alternatively, you can schedule queries via our APIs; for full API documentation, please visit the Developer Relations website. When scheduling a query, we highly recommend that you consider the impact the query might have on your endpoints.

Recommended_Schedule.png

The time that you select when scheduling is the time when the query is sent to the targeted devices if they are active and online. It is not the time that the device will run the query (i.e., the device local time). Any endpoints that are offline when the query is scheduled to run will respond to the most recent running recurrence of the query when they come back online, and the results will show up on the Query Results > Scheduled tab.

After you have scheduled a query, you can consult the latest results of that query on the Query Results > Scheduled tab. Going forward, ad-hoc queries will appear in the One-Time tab and all scheduled queries and their runs will appear in the Scheduled tab. To view the runs of a scheduled query, click the > next to the name of the scheduled query; to view the results of an individual run, click the Time link.QueryResults_Scheduled.png

You can take the following actions on the query schedule:

Edit the query name, the email notification settings and the frequency.

Stop the schedule from running in the future. Any queries in progress will run to completion.

Delete the schedule. This action also deletes all runs of the scheduled query.

You can also stop and delete individual runs of a scheduled query.

“Run” recommendation location change

We have changed the content and location of the Run field within the Recommended Query cards. The recommended run frequency is not a schedule, nor an indication that the query has been automatically scheduled for you.RunLocationChanged.png

Email opt-in

We have changed the default behavior of the email notifications setting across Live Query. The default setting now requires you to opt-in if you want to be notified when a query reaches completion.EmailCheckbox.png

CB ThreatHunter

New Process ID (PID) information

The Process Analysis page now provides the Process ID (PID) that is related to each event, in the expanded details section for each event. This PID can sometimes be different than the PID for the process that is currently selected on the page.
 
This additional context helps track potentially malicious processes and their related targets throughout the attack chain. It is shown next to the process tree visualization to make investigations quick and efficient.
 
Each operating system can exhibit the following behavior:

Windows: Identifies the process that initiated a crossproc event. Crossproc events are provided for both the initiator and the target processes. Crossproc events for the target process report the initiator's PID in the event details pane.Windows crossproc target different PID.png

Linux: When a process calls fork() to generate a new process instance, the Carbon Black Cloud reports the event from the original and the fork()ed process in one process. The Process Analysis page reports the PID of the fork() process in the event area, to help distinguish these events from events that are generated by the pre-fork() process.Linux fork PID on Process Analysis.png

 

Updated dynamic rules for Windows sensors

Beginning with Windows version 3.4, the latest Carbon Black Cloud sensors now support CB ThreatHunter to deliver enterprise detection and response capabilities. 
 
CB ThreatHunter leverages a new, highly adaptive mechanism for seamlessly distributing new policy content, which is called "dynamic rules." These rules improve sensor behavior without upgrading the sensor binaries.
 
Powered by the VMware Carbon Black Cloud, Carbon Black continually updates the dynamic rules content for current CB ThreatHunter customers to deliver the latest collection, detection, and response capabilities. This helps combat emerging threats automatically.
 
All CB ThreatHunter customers are upgraded to the latest CB ThreatHunter dynamic rules content. The latest sensor enhancements include the following:

Reporting of discovered modloads

Enhanced cross-referencing between CB ThreatHunter and CB Defense data (if any)

Improved de-duplication of reported data

Architectural support for future sensor releases

CB LiveOps

Live Query console improvements

A series of console improvements makes Live Query easier to use and provides space for future additional functionality. We divided the original Live Query page into two separate pages under one link in the navigation bar:

LQ Nav Bar dj.png

 

To craft a new query, click Live Query and then click New Query. To review results of past or currently-running queries, click Query Results

We redesigned the Recommended tab to make it easier for you to find pre-built queries. At the top of the new tab, five categories help you find and filter the best queries based on your use case. The default category is All, which lets you browse through all queries. Click a category filter to show only the queries that exist in that category. 

We moved the Email feature to the top navigation pane. Your selection persists across sessions; if you uncheck a selection, it remains unchecked until you check it again.

LQ Categories dj.png

We added an OS filter to help you find queries for a specific operating system. You can select multiple operating systems; the query list shows queries that match any of the selected operating systems.

LQ OS Filter dj.png

Queries now run against all endpoints by default, which makes it easier to query against all endpoints that are running a selected operating system. You can still query on selected policies and endpoints. If you select a policy or endpoint type, the Run button is disabled for queries that are incompatible with your selection. For example, if you select a Linux endpoint, the Run button on Windows-only and macOS-only queries is disabled. The Run button is also disabled if you do not have any active endpoints of that operating system in your environment.

LQ - Disabled Run dj.png

We redesigned pre-built queries. For each query, we added expected results and the frequency with which to run each query. Click the + button on a query card to display the SQL equivalent of that query.

LQ SQL expando dj.png

When you click the Run button, a green notification confirms that the query has successfully started.

LQ Toast dj.png

 

The Query History table is now on the Query Results page. You can view the status and results of currently-running or past queries.

LQ Query Results page dj.png

Device view status and improvements

To provide extra context into what happens after you click Run, we improved the query-specific Results pages. We reordered the tabs so that the Devices tab now displays before the Results tab. You can get details on matches for a specific device by clicking the blue number under the Results column. All specific and granular data remains in the Results tab.

LQ-Statuses dj.png

 

We added the Response Pending status in the Devices tab to give more insight into how a query is progressing. In the Response filter and in the API, this field is called not_started. This status appears for any device that has not checked in with the cloud since the query was run. An active endpoint can often take 5 minutes or less to respond; devices that remain in the Response Pending status might be offline. If these devices remain offline for the seven day period during which the query is run, they will stay in Response Pending even after the query is marked Completed.
 
Removal of the Query Builder
We removed the Query Builder tab based on customer feedback. For more information about this decision, refer to this blog postYou can still query on all the osquery tables that you ran in the Query Builder by writing or copying queries in the SQL Query tab. See osquery schema and an Introduction to SQL.

CB ThreatHunter

New URLs

We changed the prefix for the Investigate page URL. For example, in the PROD05 environment, the URL for the Investigate page is now https://defense-prod05.conferdeploy.net/cb/investigate.

We removed /threat-hunter/ from the Process Analysis page URL. For example, in the PROD06 environment, the URL for the Process Analysis page is now https://defense-eu.conferdeploy.net/analyze.

New search field

All searches for sensor_action:BLOCK can now be accomplished by searching for sensor_action:DENY. We made this change to ensure consistent terminology throughout the platform. The sensor_action value of DENY (and previously BLOCK) describes the action of the Carbon Black Cloud sensor preventing a process from starting.

Please update scripts and CB ThreatHunter Watchlists to use the new sensor_action:DENY value for any places where you previously searched for sensor_action:BLOCK.

Query History Table and Status Bar improvements

To make Live Query results easier to interpret, we consolidated the Query History Table. Based on user feedback, we removed the Matches and Last Result columns, rearranged the remaining columns, and added three new device-centric columns:

Responded: These devices have run the query and returned results back to the cloud by successfully matching the query (one or more results returned), not matching the query (zero results returned), or returning with an error.

In Progress: These devices have received the query and are in the process of running it and uploading results. 

Response Pending: These devices have not yet received the query. This can include devices that are offline or that have not checked in since the query was started.

We removed the Timed out query status because it caused confusion. A query can now be completed if all devices have responded or if seven days have elapsed.

LQ query history table dj.png

We changed the progress bar on the individual query results page. The progress bar shows the same information that is available on the Query History table, with the addition of a device count. It will dynamically update as devices respond.

Favorite search improvements

When a Favorite Search is selected on the Investigate page, it will replace the existing search bar contents rather than append the Favorite Search to existing text. This change was made based on customer feedback.

Improved search field: enriched

We renamed the legacy search field to enriched in Investigate and Process Analysis search interfaces to more accurately reflect the returned results.

When searching in Investigate for analytics-enriched results, search supports enriched:true as the best way to find those events and processes.

All future Watchlist IOCs should migrate to using enriched:true and remove legacy:true.

The search interface and all Watchlist IOCs support both enriched and legacy search fields for at least six months, after which time the support for legacy will be removed.

CB LiveOps

Improved In Progress visibility

We have added an In Progress status in the Devices tab to give more insight into a query. This status appears when a device has checked in with the cloud backend, which has received the query and is running the query and uploading results.

LQ Device View - In Progress .png

Additional recommended queries

Since our last release, we have more than doubled the number of recommended queries that are available in the Recommended tab. These queries are expertly crafted by our internal threat research team and CB LiveOps experts. For more queries, check out our public Query Exchange.


CB ThreatHunter

Save favorite searches

CB ThreatHunter now lets you save favorite searches. There are two new icons on the Investigate page: a star symbol and a down-arrow.

Type a search into the search bar.

Click the star icon. You can optionally rename the search.

Click Save.

After a favorite search is saved, any user can re-run that search. Click the down arrow to view searches. Click the favorite search to add that search to the search bar.

Favorites list.png

 

Users who have the Analyst 3, Admin, and Super Admin roles can perform the following actions based on the threathunter.events permission:

Rename favorite searches

Remove favorite searches

If you run the same search one or more times each day, consider using the Add search to threat report feature to create a custom automated Watchlist. This will run your search in the background 24 hours a day, potentially alerting you to any matches on that search.

You can use favorite searches as building blocks. If you frequently use the same set of search terms, you can create a Favorite that includes that sequence, and append it to situation-specific searches.

For example, you might frequently search for an activity that originates from a large number of web browsers. Perhaps one day you're searching for any time that browsers have connected to a potentially malicious domain, and another day you're searching for browser activity that loaded a potentially malicious module. You can type out the entire search each time; for example: 

netconn_domain:hackerz.tech AND (process_name:chrome.exe OR process_name:firefox.exe OR process_name:microsoftedge*.exe)

modload_hash:6426cf806ecfc1432326bd4e0c9d0bba25b8db8ff5a79ef2722e7ddd889a8f30 AND (process_name:chrome.exe OR process_name:firefox.exe OR process_name:microsoftedge*.exe)

Or, you can create a Favorite with  search process_name:chrome.exe OR process_name:firefox.exe OR process_name:microsoftedge*.exe and name it "Browsers".

The next time your search includes all browsers, you can type out the specifics of the unique search, open the list of Favorites, and select the "Browsers" favorite. CB ThreatHunter will append the Favorite's contents into the search bar and add it to your search query.

New search fields

We’ve introduced two new search fields:

enriched:true — Helps you find all CB Defense data that is enriched by the Carbon Black Cloud analytics engine.

process_cmdline_length — Lets you find processes that were launched by using a lengthy command line (for example, process_cmdline_length:[100 to *]).


August 5, 2019

 

Carbon Black Cloud

Relative time zones

When a date and time are displayed in the console, a tool tip now indicates the relative timezone.

For example, if the device time is reported as 4:41:37pm Aug 1, 2019, and you are located in the U.S. Pacific time zone (UTC -07:00), the device time data is reported as 4:41:37pm Aug 1, 2019.

When you hover your mouse over the device time cell, a tool tip shows the timezone into which the timestamp has been converted (for example, UTC -07:00).

Prevent users from changing their roles

Carbon Black now restricts user from changing their role to protect users from accidentally demoting themselves into a role with fewer permissions. Because users could never promote themselves into a role with more permissions, self-demotions required a more powerful user to reverse the change. These situations are now avoided.
