Critical Severity Risk Detected

This alert detects whenever critical severity risks are added to your domain or IPs. Impact Depends on the type and parameters of the log. Please check the logs for more details. Mitigation To further investigate the alert, check fields like 'Domain', 'Title', 'Description' in the log. Also, check for any repeating alerts for the same domain/IP and adjacent logs.

High Severity Risk Detected

This alert detects whenever high-severity risks are added to your domain or IPs. Impact Depends on the type and parameters of the log. Please check the logs for more details. Mitigation To further investigate the alert, check fields like 'Domain', 'Title', 'Description' in the log. Also, check for any repeating alerts for the same domain/IP and adjacent logs.

Medium Severity Risk Detected

This alert detects whenever medium-severity risks are added to your domain or IPs. Impact Depends on the type and parameters of the log. Please check the logs for more details. Mitigation To further investigate the alert, check fields like 'Domain', 'Title', 'Description' in the log. Also, check for any repeating alerts for the same domain/IP and adjacent logs.

Remediation Request Closed

This alert detects when a remediation request has been automatically closed. UpGuard can help you keep track of all vendor-related remediation activities by letting you create, see and respond to remediation requests. Each remediation request outlines the risks that need to be remediated to the vendor and allows them to securely communicate with you. Please refer to the below link to know more about remediation requests: https://help.upguard.com/en/articles/3992587-how-to-manage-vendor-remediation-requests-with-upguard Impact If the remediation request is automatically closed without actually being remediated, this could potentially put your organization at risk. If the threat actors have gained an access to your systems, they can view these open risks and might exploit them. Mitigation Validate if the automatic closing of the remediation request is legitimate or not. if not, revert the changes and investigate further. MITRE Tactic: TA0040 MITRE Technique: T1565

Action Taken On Vendor Asset Sharing Request

This alert detects when accounts in the same account group grant or deny access to shared vendor assets. With Shared Assets, you can securely share questionnaires, additional evidence, and risk assessments with related entities who also use UpGuard. Shared Assets show all available assets that are owned by a related entity or the vendor. Please refer to the below link to know more about asset sharing: https://help.upguard.com/en/articles/5094336-what-are-shared-assets Impact Adversaries may take advantage of shared assets in different ways. For instance, adversaries may target a shared asset when it is shared by multiple accounts and then leverage its trusted access to another account/environment to launch an attack. Shared assets, in some cases, may not be deployed with a secure configuration leading to weaknesses that could allow an adversary to propagate malicious executable code, e.g., the shared asset may be infected by malware and when connected to another environment the malware propagates onto other systems. Mitigation If a shared asset is found compromised, scan the network to find any other possible signs of infection. Investigate further to check which accounts share that asset and what are the permissions assigned to the asset. Administrators are also recommended to check the integrity of the shared vendor asset.

New Message Posted On Data Leaks

This alert detects whenever a user posts a new message/comment about a data leak that concerns your organization. The purpose of this alert is to understand if people in general are talking about the data leak. If the users have malicious intentions, they can in fact exploit the information available from the leaks. Impact Cybercriminals can misuse the leaked data to target victims with phishing or spear-phishing attacks. Also, publishing of data leak findings can ultimately take credibility away from an organization. Mitigation Identify all the sensitive data that was leaked. Continuously monitor the web forum where the data leak was published. Check whether the data leaks were published on multiple forums.

Typosquat Registration Changed

This alert detects whenever registration details for the typosquatted domain are updated. Typosquatting, or URL hijacking, is a form of cybersquatting targeting people that accidentally mistype a website address directly into their web browser URL field. Cybersquatters register domain names that are a slight variation of the target brand (usually a common spelling error). Impact With a malicious typosquatted domain registered by a threat actor, if a legitimate user accidentally misspells the right domain/website name while browsing that website, they can be directed to the malicious website and could be a victim of a phishing campaign. Mitigation Please check for any signs of infection in the network if a user visited a typosquatted domain. If found any, check for the browser history to find out the domain name visited. Please refer to the below link to know more about typosquatting and the preventive measures: https://www.upguard.com/blog/typosquatting MITRE Tactic: TA0042 MITRE Technique: T1583.001

Known Exploited CVE Detected For Vendor

This alert detects when a CVE detected on one or more of your vendor's domains becomes part of the known exploited vulnerabilities catalog released by CISA. Please check the below link to see a complete list of all the known exploited vulnerabilities maintained by CISA: https://www.cisa.gov/known-exploited-vulnerabilities-catalog Impact These vulnerabilities are generally widely exploited by threat actors. So, if not patched, they can exploit the CVEs to either gain initial access to your organization or escalate their existing privileges if already in. Mitigation Make sure to patch the vulnerabilities as soon as these are detected. If the vulnerabilities are already widely exploited, also make sure to scan the machines to check for the presence of any indicators of compromise. MITRE Tactic: TA0004 MITRE Technique: T1068

VIP email addresses are highly lucrative for the threat adversaries. Impact If a threat actor has access to the email addresses of key executives of your company, they can target them using spear-phishing attacks in order to steal valuable information. Mitigation For all the email addresses detected to be part of a breach, change the corresponding passwords as a part of immediate action. Check if these email addresses in the past received any suspicious emails. If there were any, investigate further. MITRE Tactic: TA0043 MITRE Technique: T1589

Email Exposure Detected

This alert detects whenever an email address belonging to your organization's domain was found to be part of the leaked data from a security breach. Impact A threat actor if has access to the email addresses belonging to your domain, they can target employees of your organization using phishing or spear-phishing attacks.

Risk Assessment Published

This alert detects when your organization's risk assessment report is published knowingly or unknowingly for the general public to view. This is a serious threat as it can give threat actors insight into existing weaknesses in your infrastructure and they can exploit these further if these weaknesses/vulnerabilities are not fixed. Impact Publishing the risk assessment report can give away crucial information such as critical unpatched vulnerabilities to threat actors. Threat actors can then exploit these to gain access to your organization. Mitigation Make sure to take the risk assessment report down from the internet as soon as it is identified. Patch the vulnerabilities identified in the risk assessment report as soon as possible to avoid any potential incident.

Impact A threat actor can exploit the existing vulnerabilities to hijack your domain and perform actions such as taking down servers, stealing data, leading users to fraudulent sites, and performing Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, etc. Mitigation Make sure to patch the vulnerabilities as soon as these are detected before threat actors can exploit them. If the vulnerabilities are already widely exploited, also make sure to scan the machines to check for the presence of any indicators of compromise. MITRE Tactic: TA0042 MITRE Technique: T1584

Breach News Feed Article Published

This alert detects whenever a news feed article is published about a security incident that involves/impacts either your organization directly or your vendors. Impact Following a breach, an organization may not just lose revenue but also brand reputation and customer trust. Mitigation Investigate the probable cause of the data breach.
