@Jafar_Hussain,

Check the Threat Vault at the link below for Morti and there's already two antivirus signatures for MortiAgent and a WildFire signature. If you don't find that suitable defense you'll need to look into creating your own custom threat signature.

Thanks for the information.

I was unable to find MortiAgent in the PAN threat vault

It is mandatory to create a custom signature for Mortiagent malware.

I have gone through the documents which you provided. if i will create a customer signature what is the threat id we need to use.

@Jafar_Hussain,

The threat ID you select doesn't matter, as long as it's within the available range. Some people make enough to actually create a format for numbering their custom IDs, others don't follow one and simply increment with each entry.

Hello,

Make sure your PAN objects are setup for AntiVirus, AntiSpyware, URL Filtering, WildFire, and DNS Sink hole. Then make sure they are applied to all inbound/outbound policies so the traffic is inspected. Also make sure your PAN has the latest Dynamic signatures.

 

Having the PAN setup for this is a great way to dynamically block malicious traffic. Along with your other products, i.e. desktop antivirus, etc.

Hello,

If you have all the other security features turned on and dynamic updates working and up to date. I would say you are good, however check the endpoint AV and make sure its working and maybe even run a full scan.

I got the instruction from the gov. i need to create a custom signature for Mortiagent. They have sent some files.

In the files, there is some IOC's:-

1 - Host base indicator( Which is mentioned some MD5 and SHA values)

2 - Network base indicator( Which is mentioned in some IP address list).

 

To create a custom signature which pattern and references i need to choose ? below is the snort rule:-

alert tcp $HOME_NET any -> $EXTERNAL_NET $HTTP_PORTS (msg:" MoriAgent Beacon HTTP Request"; content:"/Index.php?i="; depth:200; content:"&t="; within:64; content:"HTTP/1.1"; within:64; content:"Content-Type: application/json"; within:32; content:"Content-Length: 0"; within:90; threshold:type limit,track by_src,count

1,seconds 120; sid:1000001; rev:001;)

 

- For the IP address, i need to create an EDL to block all the IP's?

 

Thank you in advance.
