How can I monitor file access on Windows?

Why do you want to monitor who accessed a particular file? Files are one of the primary forms of storing information. It is common practice for companies to store data in files that hold valuable, sometimes sensitive, information. What could this "important" data be? Of course, I am not talking about the company’s last team-building pictures. I’m afraid that’s not what the bad guys are interested in. They will likely be more interested in business plans, financial or personal data.

BROP attacks - What is it and how to defend yourself?

Have you ever locked yourself out of your car? After calling for roadside service, your tow truck driver forces the internal locking mechanism open with a slim-jim. Car thieves quickly discovered this technique and began using it to steal cars. Digital thieves have devised a similar attack called a Blind Return-Oriented Programming (Blind ROP, or just BROP) attack. It’s as quiet as a jackhammer on cement, but an attacker can open a remote shell and gain remote code execution on your server if the conditions are right.

Our customers asked - Execution of powershell scripts inside NXLog Exec modules

PowerShell scripts can be used with NXLog for generating, processing, and forwarding logs, as well as for generating configuration content. In this article, we will take a look at how to execute PowerShell directly from NXLog. You can run a PowerShell script in multiple NXLog instances without using any PowerShell script file, and is achievable through having the script code directly in NXLog’s exec modules. This is ideal because if you need to make any change to the script, it’s easier to modify just the NXLog module rather than change the script on every computer used.
