Warzone RAT comes with UAC bypass technique

Uptycs' threat research team identified an XLS document that downloaded a highly vicious payload named Warzone RAT. The payload, also known as “Ave Maria stealer,” can steal credentials and log keystrokes on the victim’s machine. Checkpoint mentioned Warzone early this year when the malware was in its early stage of development.

Uptycs EDR for Linux: Detection and visibility all the way through

Despite the fact that Linux server endpoints comprise 90% of cloud workloads and a majority of on-premises enterprise workloads, they don’t usually get as much attention as productivity endpoints. Most EDR solutions focus on end users and don’t meet the unique requirements for production Linux servers, such as the need for 100% uptime and low resource consumption.

Fast, consolidated, and context-rich detections from Uptycs will keep security analysts sane

Fast, consolidated, and context-rich detections from Uptycs will keep security analysts sane

Today, Uptycs is introducing enhanced detection capabilities, including a new detections UI that correlates signals (events and alerts), assigns a composite threat score, and maps the associated signals to the MITRE ATT&CK matrix. This new experience equips analysts with the context they need to quickly triage their detections queue without feeling like they’re missing anything. Watch the demo video below to see the new functionality in action.

Osquery is a powerful tool that allows you to investigate and monitor a myriad of endpoint activity, status, and configuration information through a unified SQL interface. Inside osquery, there's typically a 1:1 correspondence between a source of information and the SQL table you can use to browse or search this information. Some sources of information include parts of the /proc file system, API calls to container daemons, reading logs or status files on disk, and event streams coming from the Linux audit frame.
