Interview: Peter Smith, Edgewise - 6:00-6:30PM
Tech Segment: Corey Thuen, Gravwell - 6:30 - 7:30PM
Topic: Security analytics using the new Sysmon DNS logging and Sysmon DNS logging dropped this week.
- This week Mark Russinovich released an update to sysmon that adds DNS logging to the popular (and free) endpoint monitoring tool. In this segment, Corey will talk about sysmon use cases and deployment, crack open the new DNS events, conduct some endpoint DNS analytics, and then incorporate threat feeds to stand up DNS monitoring (time permitting).
- Obviously this all hinges on the tool actually going out. As of June 8, that's still the plan: https://twitter.com/markrussinovich/status/1137466538322042880<br.

- Warnings of world-wide worm attacks are the real deal, new exploit shows - Unfortunately, these tasks often take place in mission-critical environments such as hospitals, factories, and industrial settings. While patching is by far the most effective way to prevent exploits, there are a variety of workarounds that can be deployed. Chief among them is enabling Network Level Authentication (NLA) for Remote Desktop Services, although this defense is ineffective in the event that attackers have compromised the NLA credentials. It may also be possible to at least partially defeat NLA defenses using a remote desktop protocol weakness disclosed Tuesday. So, for these mission critical applications in those environments, where they can't go down, can't be rebooted, and they are so important that patching is out of the question, WHY THE HELL DID YOU CHOOSE WINDOWS? Isn't there a better solution? Is this the fault of the provider? This isn't even a security argument, can't we help fix this problem with better design choices?

- This is grim, Vim and Neovim: Opening this crafty file in your editor may pwn your box. Patch now if not already - With Debian and some other Linux distros, .vimrc ships with modelines already disabled by default, hence those versions are not vulnerable out of the box, though it is still a good idea to update your copy of Vim or Neovim to the latest version.
- Google expert disclosed details of an unpatched flaw in SymCrypt library - According to Microsoft, SymCrypt is the primary library for implementing symmetric cryptographic algorithms in Windows 8, it also implements asymmetric cryptographic algorithms starting with Windows 10 version 1703.Ormandy discovered that it is possible to trigger the flaw to cause an infinite loop when making specific cryptographic operations.
