Re: Event 3327 false positive?

Are you talking about IDS v4.1 or IPS v5.0?

V5.0

Re: Event 3327 false positive?

In addition to the version which subsignature is firing?

Re: Event 3327 false positive?

drilling down I don't see the subsig indicated.

How do I determine that?

Cisco Employee

Re: Event 3327 false positive?

It should be listed near the signature id; the exact location would depend on how you’re getting the alerts (management platform, cli, etc).

Re: Event 3327 false positive?

subsig 6

I am using the Threat Analysis Console and you have to right click and show all columns to get the subsig. Sorry for the delay.

Re: Event 3327 false positive?

There are no known benign triggers for this signature. If you can provide a traffic sample we should be able to determine if the activity is malicious. The easiest way to do this is to enable capture packet for this signature.

Here are captures from etherpeek and in decode format. The destination is always a windows AD server. The source is always an external trusted host ie computers in remote offices using PIX 501's to a VPN3000.

Re: Event 3327 false positive?

There is nothing in this traffic that would cause this signature to fire. Without a traffic sample I cannot say for sure if this is a false positive. There dozens of worms that use this vulnerability as a means of propagation so internal alerts are not necessairly benign. You may want to look for alerts from the 3328-* signatures, they should also fire on most attempts to exploit this vulnerability.

Re: Event 3327 false positive?

Here's the entire conversation. No 3328's are firing.

Re: Event 3327 false positive?

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. This is indeed a false positive. We research this signature for modification in an upcoming signature update. In the meantime you can either filter out trusted hosts or create a metasignature using this signature as a component to reduce the chance of false positives.

Tune signature 3327-6 and remove the produce alert action.

Create a custom signature as follows:

Engine Meta

Component list:

3327-6

3328-0

Meta-reset-interval = 2

Severity high

Summarize

Met-key = Axxx – 1 unique victim

Component-list-in order = false

Event action: produce alert

This signature will only fire when signatures 3327-6 and 3328-0 fire. Since 3327-6 would have no event action of its own you would not see alerts from it.

Note that this signature does not have as high fidelity as the original 3327-6, that being said signature 3327-0 detects almost all public exploits for this vulnerability.

Thank you for sticking with me and getting this resolved. Thank you also for the work arounds.
