Carbon Black Cloud: Is Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) fully supported?

Environment

  • Carbon Black Cloud Sensor: All Versions
  • Microsoft Windows 10 version 1607 and Higher
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2019

Question

Does the Carbon Black Cloud sensor work with WSL?

Answer

No, full support of WSL with the sensor is not available.

Additional Notes

  • The sensor cannot recognize and track the underlying Linux executables and scripts nor assign reputation consistently
