Rapid7 is monitoring the escalating conflict in Ukraine, and we have provided a blog on the various attack vectors organizations may see, as well as guidance on mitigations and remediations.
To assist with your preparation and response efforts, Rapid7 is continuously integrating into our products the most up-to-date threat intelligence — both consumed and curated — which are monitoring for new attack vectors and intelligence in order to alert on attacker behaviors that are associated with various Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) groups within InsightIDR.
If you are a Managed Detection & Response (MDR) customer, our global SOC teams are monitoring your environment 24/7 with a high degree of diligence, and as standard procedure, any verified suspicious activity will be investigated and reported to you with expediency. Considering the current crisis, we have placed a special emphasis on the most relevant APT groups, and we are closely monitoring a wide breadth of sources to make use of any newly created and verified indicators.
Keeping software patched against known vulnerabilities is an important first line of defense against attackers. On January 11, 2022, the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) published Alert AA22-011A: Understanding and Mitigating Russian State-Sponsored Cyber Threats to US Critical Infrastructure, listing several vulnerabilities known to be exploited by Russian threat actors.
InsightVM and Nexpose have checks for the CVEs called out in this alert. These vulnerabilities are included in InsightVM’s Threat Feed Dashboard (see the Assets With Actively Targeted Vulnerabilities card and the Most Common Actively Targeted Vulnerabilities card), along with other vulnerabilities known to be exploited in the wild.
