Autoruns and Scheduled Tasks from or referencing AppDataautoruns_and_scheduled_tasks_from_or_referencing_appdataAttackers will often use registry autoruns and scheduled tasks to maintain persistence on a compromised machine. A common technique leverages AppData\\\\Local\\\\Temp as a storage location for malicious payloads set to run at a particular time or upon trigger (i.e. login). Any automatic execution from this folder or sub-folders should be analyzed.

VERSIONS SUPPORTED
* RSA NetWitness Endpoint 11.1 and higher
logattack phase, exploit, threat
Autoruns and Scheduled Tasks from Root of ProgramDataautoruns_and_scheduled_tasks_from_root_of_program_dataAttackers will often use registry autoruns and scheduled tssks to maintain persistence on a compromised machine. A common technique leverages %SYSTEMROOT%\\ProgramData as a storage location for malicious payloads set to run at a particular time or upon trigger (i.e. login). It is not common for executables to be launching from the root of ProgramData, so any instance should be considered suspicious.

VERSIONS SUPPORTED
* RSA NetWitness Endpoint 11.1 and higher
logattack phase, exploit, threat
Autoruns and Scheduled Tasks Invoking Command Shellautoruns_and_scheduled_tasks_invoking_command_shellAttackers will often use registry autoruns and scheduled tasks to maintain persistence on a compromised machine. A common technique will invoke trusted system shells (cmd.exe and powershell.exe) to perform malicious activity in an effort to evade anti-malware solutions. While not all autoruns invoking these commands are inherently malicious, an analyst should understand which of those are normal or require for IT operations and be suspicious of all others.

VERSIONS SUPPORTED
* RSA NetWitness Endpoint 11.1 and higher
logattack phase, exploit, threat
Autoruns and Scheduled Tasks Invoking Windows Script Hostautoruns_and_scheduled_tasks_invoking_windows_script_hostAttackers will often use registry autoruns and scheduled tasks to maintain persistence on a compromised machine. A common technique will invoke Windows Script Host (cscript.exe and wscript.exe) to launch scripts in an effort to evade anti-malware solutions. While not all autoruns invoking these commands are inherently malicious, an analyst should understand which of those are normal or required for IT operations and be suspicious of all others.

VERSIONS SUPPORTED
* RSA NetWitness Endpoint 11.1 and higher
logattack phase, exploit, threat
Autoruns and Scheduled Tasks Running Scriptsautoruns_and_scheduled_tasks_running_scriptsAttackers will often use registry autoruns and scheduled tasks to maintain persistence on a compromised machine. A common technique will call and execute various scripts to provide further instructions for attack. Detecting arguments being passed to an executable that look like common script file formats can be a good indicator of compromise, particularly when attackers choose to obfuscate the name of the launching binary (e.g. create a copy of cmd.exe under a different name), While not all autoruns invoking these scripts are inherently malicious, an analyst should understand which of those are normal or require for IT operations and be suspicious of all others.

VERSIONS SUPPORTED
* RSA NetWitness Endpoint 11.1 and higher
