This week, a credit service in India called Creditseva suffered a data breach which exposed details of some 48,000 citizens – including driver’s licenses, home addresses and credit reports. The company was notified by Kromtech security researchers of the breach when they noticed the information on an insecure Amazon S3 bucket.

How to Get Windows Logs into Immediate Insight

The logsender.ps1 Powershell script will send all logs from $logSrc to Immediate Insight. Unlike many other systems, Windows does not send out logs directly via syslog. Many organizations use agent software (e.g. SNARE) to gather Windows logs, if you have such as solution in place you can forward the logs from that solution to Immediate Insight. However if you don’t have such a solution in place, the free scripts below provide another method to retrieve Windows logs into Immediate Insight.

** Do not use this script for sending Security logs **

** Use the securityLogSender.ps1 script instead **

The scripts described in this article can be obtained by emailing iisupport@firemon.com.

Prerequisite

Immediate Insight must be running and reachable from the Windows Server where this data transfer agent is installed.

Installation

    • Edit /home/insight/app/search/tools/windows/logSender.ps1

    $iiIP = '' (example: ‘10.140.2.45’)

    $iiPort = '' (example: ‘3000’)

    $protocol = '' (example: ‘UDP’)

    $localLog = '’ (example: ‘c:usersAdministratoriiLogSender.log’)

    Specify the log source’s Full Name (may be different from the display name). Note: Security logs are not supported with this particular script.

    $logSrc = 'System'

    Right click, Properties on the log to view its Full Name, for example:

    immin_install_step1_properties

    Set the logging level

    Y means the header + message are sent.

    N means only the message is sent.

    $sendEntireLog = 'Y'

    Keep a copy of each log in the $localLog

    $copyLogLocally = 'N'

    • Copy logSender.ps1 to Windows Server (i.e. home directory for administrator account).
    • In the Computer Management utility on the Windows Server to be monitored:
      • Right click the log category (must be the same as $logSrc defined in the PowerShell script) and select the 'Attach a Task To this Log...' menu choice.
      • For the action, select 'Start a Program' and enter:

      Program/script: powershell.exe

      Add arguments: -file path to the copied logSender.ps1

      How the arguments looks exactly may depending on where you put things and your user account privileges. Here is one example;

      immin_install_step3b_startprogram

      • After adding the task

      Open the Task Scheduler node

      Select 'Event Viewer Tasks'

      Select the task you added in the previous step

      Click Properties in the right pane. Action Refresh might be needed if you don't see the new task.


      Set the following property:

      General tab: Run whether user is logged on or not

      • After editing the properties,

      Disable then Enable the new task. It will run automatically when a new event arrives.

      • On the Immediate Insight server, create a data collector for the $iiport and $protocol defined in step 1.

      Note: the name of the source data collector is added as metadata to each event from the source so naming the collectors can help isolate data when searching.

      Note: if Immediate Insight brings individual Windows logs in on multiple lines, you can give it help figuring out when one event starts and the other ends with the help of the Multiline delimiter (Configured on the Collector). For example in some environments the following works well:

      immin_install_step4_editcollector

      Note: you will need to repeat this procedure a separate copy of LogSender.ps1 (save it will a different file name, so that is can be Attached as separate Task), if you wish to forward other categories of Windows logs such as for example $logSrc = ‘Application’

      Jul 27, 2017 Bridge the Gap Between Your Risk & Network Teams to Reduce Risk
      Recent cyberattacks such as Wannacry and Petya magnify the need to make risk and vulnerability management a top priority for organizations.  Combine that with a network security posture that is too open from years of access changes and little policy cleanup, organizations are more at risk now than at any time in history.

      The Return on Security of FireMon’s Security Manager
      IANS
      Large Healthcare Provider
      The customer sought a data analysis tool to correlate application data with network and security data to spot service-impacting anomalies. They did not have an accurate picture of interoperability between applications and the underlying infrastructure.
      Major Airline
      Following a merger with another airline, this customer was left managing a large number of firewalls and routers from different security vendors using a home-grown application.
      National Insurance Provider
      This national insurance provider had three problems to tackle regarding their firewall policies. First, the number of rules under management was overwhelming staff and processes. They needed to increase visibility and effectiveness of their firewall change request/workflow ticketing process. And they also need help maintaining compliance PCI DSS requirements.
      Managed Service Provider
      Each time this Global MSP engaged a new customer, they had to onboard the firewalls – sometimes hundreds per engagement – into their network. Part of the onboarding process required assessing the policies against internal best practices – a manual, line-by-line process that took an average of 16 hours/firewall and was extremely error-prone.
