Detection of various open source apps

L3 Networker

Hi All,


We want alerts to be triggered for various open-source applications like NodeJS, Nginx, Python, etc.


Kindly let me know how we can achieve this.




Hi @Shahwaz_Md ,

Can  you give a bit more information what you want to achieve?

What do you mean by detect open-source app? When process is started/executed? When installed? When generating traffic?

We want an alert/incident to be triggered when the process is started/executed.

Hi Aleksandar,


Kindly share any suggestions for this.

Hi @Shahwaz_Md you'll need to look at creating custom BIOC's to trigger alerts when the process is spawned. 
There's an excellent LiveCommunity threat that has been around for a while to detect such behavior (including blocking such executions) - you can read it here (
