New advanced protections

  • "Pass The Hash" detection in Behavioral Guard has been enhanced, to recognize more “Pass The Hash” attempts.
    Pass The Hash is used by an attacker to do remote authentication by utilizing the hash of an account password. In other words, the attacker does not need the actual plaintext password.
    This technique in essence allows for lateral movement in an organization.
  • Improved malicious LNK files detection
    Behavioral Guard was enhanced, to detect malicious LNK files (windows shortcut / direct link to a file). It analyzes the target of a LNK file to determine if the LNK file itself is malicious.
    LNK files are mostly though not exclusively utilized maliciously to start LOLBins (Living Off The Land Binaries) like Windows OS executables. Some common targets for malicious LNK files include CMD, powershell, and wscript.

In addition, the Forensics Analysis now can determine whether the attack originated from an LNK file and the Forensics Report shows the targets of all LNK files in an incident.


Content view in the Forensics report

The Forensics Report now has been enhanced to show all AMSI content and LNK targets in a new single view called the Content View. This view is accessible under the Incident Details Menu option



Full Disk Encryption – pre-boot screen

The Full Disk Encryption pre–boot has a modernized look and feel along with updates to the color-theme and background images.



Stay safe,

Since a few versions ago, when Check Point Endpoint is installed in Mac, Screen Sharing does not work. Even when disconnected.Even when client is stopped. Firewall is off. in the Mac. The only way it works again is uninstalling Endpoint. Are you aware of this problem?


AFAIK, there are some limitations related to EPS functionality on Mac. Screen sharing and AirDrop are part of those. 


Thanks. Hope they fix it soon as it prevents doing remote support, even from the local network.

One other problem I have found is that when authentication is about to expire and after providing credentials, the connection terminates anyway. It does not reset the authentication timeout.
