Using HIDS

    Hey guys,

    In the middle of managing a fairly big rollut and upgrade of DCSSA where there are a number of administrators and people who prefer to use the commands to put DCS in to a buikltin mode instead of tuning or using the override.exe tool.

    Is there a way to create a detection event to track who runs sisipsconfig -r ? Looking to create an event which can report the usr name that has run the command.

    Hello Mark

    I don't know how to monitor running of specific command but I have idea how to help you. 

    sisipsconfig -r change line use.builtin.policy=false to use.builtin.policy=true in agent.ini file

    So you need to create file watch rule that monitor 

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Symantec\Data Center Security Server\Agent\IPS\agent.ini

    You can also add use.builtin.policy=false to "ignore string" in the policy or modify "select string" to monitor only this modification.

    I can see that runing this command wil create the event with right username with the rule.

    It also helpful as someone can edit file directly without running command.

    When you start Sisipsconfig on the agent with any flag, the agent associates the Sisipsconfig process with the "FullOpen_PS" Sandbox and the Assignment Process event is created with the action create and Severity "Information"
    Change in "Default Prevention Config" in the rule for "Process Assignment" Severity to "Information".
