Dynamic package

Introducing the SandBlast Agent's Dynamic package.

Starting version R80.40 & E82.40 we've introduced a new feature - "Dynamic Package", it introduces a few new benefits you did not have before.

  • You can use a single package for all types of Windows Endpoints 
    • Export a single package for any CPU (32bit and 64bit)
  • You control the size of the exported package:
    • Select any set of blades, the exported package will include only the required binaries.
    • Select which pre-requisites to install on the endpoint.
    • Decide if to update anti-malware signatures upon install
    • Client upgrade: download only the files that were changed

A few examples/statistics (Figures may vary between different deployments and are only used as reference)

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,
