Panda Security Aether

Overview

Panda Security offers two Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solutions for companies:

  • Adaptive Defense and Adaptive Defense 360
  • Endpoint Protection and Endpoint Protection Plus

This setup guide shows how to forward security events collected on the Panda Security Aether platform to SEKOIA.IO.

Benefit from SEKOIA.IO built-in rules and upgrade Panda Security Aether with the following detection capabilities out-of-the-box.

SEKOIA.IO x Panda Security Aether on ATT&CK Navigator

Account Added To A Security Enabled Group

Detection in order to investigate who has added a specific Domain User in Domain Admins or Group Policy Creator Owners (Security event 4728)

  • Effort: master
Account Removed From A Security Enabled Group

Detection in order to investigate who has removed a specific Domain User in Domain Admins or Group Policy Creator Owners (Security event 4729)

  • Effort: master
Domain Trust Created Or Removed

A trust was created or removed to a domain. An attacker could perform that in order to do lateral movement easily between domains or shutdown the ability of two domains to communicate.

  • Effort: advanced
Failed Logon Source From Public IP Addresses

A login from a public IP can indicate a misconfigured firewall or network boundary. The sekoia.tags are used to filter internal Ipv4 addresses (10.0.0.0/8 172.16.0.0/12 127.0.0.0/8 169.254.0.0/16 192.168.0.0/16).

  • Effort: master
Local Account Deleted

Detects local user deletion

  • Effort: master
Password Change On Directory Service Restore Mode (DSRM) Account

The Directory Service Restore Mode (DSRM) account is a local administrator account on Domain Controllers. Attackers may change the password to gain persistence.

  • Effort: intermediate
RYUK Ransomeware - martinstevens Username

Detects user name "martinstevens". Wizard Spider is used to add the user name "martinstevens" to the AD of its victims. It was observed in several campaigns; in 2019 and 2020.

  • Effort: elementary
SEKOIA.IO Intelligence Feed

Detect threats based on indicators of compromise (IOCs) collected by SEKOIA's Threat and Detection Research team.

  • Effort: elementary
Smbexec.py Service Installation

Detects the use of smbexec.py tool by detecting a specific service installation

  • Effort: elementary

Configure

Enable API Access

To enable API access, log in to your WatchGuard Cloud Account then select Administration > Managed Access. Click Enable API Access and specify the passwords for readwrite access and readonly access. Agree the terms and the conditions of the WatchGuard APIs License Agreement then click Save. Copy the access IDs, the API url and an API Key.

Create the intake

Go to the intake page and create a new intake from the format Panda Security Aether.

Pull events

Go to the playbook page and create a new playbook with the Panda Security trigger. You can use the existing template to fasten and ease the creation of your playbook.

Set up the module configuration with an access ID, the password of the access ID (access_secret), your WatchGuard Cloud account ID (account_id), the API Key (api_key). Set the base_url with the domain part of the API Url (e.g: for the API URL https://api.usa.cloud.watchguard.com/rest/, the base_url is https://api.usa.cloud.watchguard.com). Set up the trigger configuration with the frequency of the pull.

At the end of the playbook, set up the action Push events to intake with a SEKOIA.IO API key and the intake key, from the intake previously created.

Start the playbook and enjoy your events.
