To run an XQL query for USB device being plugged in the environment

L0 Member

I am looking to run an XQL query to search for the USB devices being plugged into the environment. Can anyone please help me out so I can figure which USB devices have already been plugged into the environment at the client's office. 

#usb #xql query

Hi @indy47 


Thank you for writing to live community!


You may start with the following XQL query to begin your investigation and tune your query and include relevant fields.

dataset = xdr_data      // Using the xdr dataset
|filter event_type=FILE
| alter Drive_Type = json_extract(to_json_string(action_file_device_info),"$.storage_device_drive_type")
| filter drive_type = "2" // filter Storage Device Drive type with value 2 which is for 'Removable Media'

Note: action_file_device_info is the field here which contains storage device info.

Hope this helps!
