A new tool to help you with the fight against infections... Malware infections.

LOG-MD Professional has more features to further help with discovering malicious behavior.  Basic features to help all users harvest valuable log events, baseline files and the registry, and compare them on suspect systems or your malware lab.  LOG-MD Professional includes the following features:

  1. Audit the system log settings, you can't collect what is not set with a PASS/FAIL score and what failed

  2. Bypass minimum audit log compliance requirements in order to harvest logs that are enabled and collecting, even if system is non-compliant to the Windows Logging Cheat Sheet

  3. PowerShell version and audit log settings information

  4. Create a report of audit settings

  5. Guide you to enable and configure needed audit log settings required by LOG-MD

  6. Harvest security related log events

a. Pro creates 25 detailed log reports to discover malicious activity

b. Resolve IP addresses with whois information from the Windows Firewall and Sysmon logs to know the owner, network, country of origin and network range

    7.  Command line summary and detailed WhoIs lookups if IPv4 addresses

File system hash baseline of all system files

    8. Compare the system files against a baseline and create a report of differences

a. Compare good file system hashes against a suspect system eliminating known good files

    9.  Baseline the registry

    10. Compare the registry against a baseline and create a report of differences

a. Compare a good system registry snapshot against a suspect system eliminating known good keys and values

    11. Summary and detailed reports of large registry keys hiding malicious scripts and payloads (used by so called "Fileless" malware)

    12. Whitelists to filter out known good large registry keys and files or hashes

    13. Additional reports detailing specific changes to the system

a. Supports third party add-ons such as Sysmon

    15. Autoruns - Produce a report of well known Autorun persistence locations and uses the Master-Digest to reduce known good hashes of binaries, and a specialized whitelist to exclude autoruns with parameters that the Master-Digest cannot, making it really fast to find malicious activity locations when the system starts up.

16. Running Processes and their modules - Produce a report of all visible running processes and their modules and uses the Master-Digest to reduce known good hashes of binaries, and a specialized whitelist to exclude known processes or modules that are noisey, making it really fast to find malicious process and modules.

    17. SRUM netflow by application report (Win 8.1 and Win 10 64 bit only) that lists how many bytes sent and received from a given application.  helps to answer "How much data was lost" and "When was the system first compromised".

    18.  VirusTotal lookups of hashes and/or files from 5 reports to create up to 10 VT reports
