In May 2023 the NCSC and CISA released a joint cyber security advisory addressing a piece of Russian malware called Snake. According to them, this malware has been gathering intelligence for the FSB in more than 50 countries for the last 20 years. Off the back of this advisory JUMPSEC decided to perform a number of threat hunts to provide assurance for some of our clients. Whilst conducting these hunts, we thought it would be beneficial to share the high-level methodology for this in the form...

In this article, we discuss some Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) techniques you can leverage when you encounter an environment without Windows event logs.
JUMPSEC investigators recently observed an adversary weaponising PowerShell Jobs to schedule their attack whilst responding to an incident. We discuss what PowerShell Jobs are, how they can be leveraged for malicious purposes, and how defenders can protect, detect, and respond to neutralise the threat.
The Windows registry is a vast and complex topic and cannot be understood and defended in one article. One particular area of interest from a security perspective is registry run keys. In this article, we discuss who uses them, how to uncover abuse, and how to eradicate evil from them.
“Indicator of compromise (IOC) in computer forensics is an artifact observed on a network or in an operating system that with high confidence indicates a computer intrusion. Typical IOCs are virus signatures and IP addresses, MD5 hashes of malware files or URLs or domain names of botnet command and control servers. After IOCs have been identified in a process of incident response and computer forensics, they can be used for early detection of future attack attempts using intrusion detection...
