securityonion-bro-scripts now detects the ShellShock Qmail SMTP "MAIL FROM" attack vector

Seth Hall added support for the ShellShock Qmail SMTP "MAIL FROM" attack vector to his Bro ShellShock scripts:
https://github.com/broala/bro-shellshock/commit/6ba280179e86243ecc0ed0b84d38e5906bbdcadc

I've updated the securityonion-bro-scripts package to include these changes.

New package version:
securityonion-bro-scripts - 20121004-0ubuntu0securityonion37

Issues Resolved

New securityonion-bro-scripts, securityonion-onionsalt, and salt packages

I've updated the securityonion-bro-scripts package to include Seth Hall's ShellShock detector from here:
https://github.com/broala/bro-shellshock

securityonion-bro-scripts also creates a new directory called /opt/bro/share/bro/intel/ that makes it easy for you to add intel to the Bro Intel framework.

Mike Reeves, Ryan Peck, and I have updated the OnionSalt scripts to replicate more data from master to sensor.  This includes the /opt/bro/share/bro/intel/ directory mentioned above and also OSSEC's agent.conf and local_decoder.xml files.

Finally, SaltStack has updated their salt packages, so we include that as well.

New package versions:
salt - 2014.1.10-1precise1
securityonion-bro-scripts - 20121004-0ubuntu0securityonion36
securityonion-onionsalt - 20140917-0ubuntu0securityonion17

Bash Vulnerability Part 5: ShellShock rules in Snort Community ruleset

This is a continuation of the ShellShock posts from the last few days:
http://blog.securityonion.net/2014/09/bash-vulnerability.html
http://blog.securityonion.net/2014/09/bash-vulnerability-part-2.html
http://blog.securityonion.net/2014/09/bash-vulnerability-part-3.html
http://blog.securityonion.net/2014/09/bash-vulnerability-part-4-another.html

If you're running the Snort VRT ruleset, please read this post in its entirety.

The Snort VRT added some ShellShock rules to the Community ruleset:
http://blog.snort.org/2014/09/snort-community-ruleset-out-of-band.html

If you look at your current /etc/nsm/pulledpork/pulledpork.conf file, you'll see that the Snort Community ruleset line is not enabled (or missing altogether if it's been a while since you ran Setup).  I've updated Setup so that when you run Setup and choose Snort VRT, it will also enable the Snort Community ruleset.  If you've already run Setup, the new Setup package will check your existing pulledpork.conf file and add/enable the Snort Community ruleset if necessary.

I've submitted securityonion-setup - 20120912-0ubuntu0securityonion122 for testing:
https://groups.google.com/d/topic/security-onion-testing/W_R_ejUc-Z4/discussion

If you're not already a member of the security-onion-testing Google Group, please join the group and help us test this new package so we can get it released as quickly as possible.

Thanks!

Bash Vulnerability Part 4: Another updated bash package

Earlier today (http://blog.securityonion.net/2014/09/bash-vulnerability-part-2.html), I said:
"There are most likely other issues, so expect additional updates to bash in the near future."

Ubuntu has now released another new bash package:
http://www.ubuntu.com/usn/usn-2363-1/

You should install this updated package as soon as possible.  As always, we recommend using "soup" to apply package updates.  Please see the following page for full update instructions:

http://blog.securityonion.net/2014/09/bash-vulnerability-part-2.html

As mentioned in an update to that blog post, Seth Hall wrote a ShellShock detector for Bro that detects successful exploitation (not just an attempt):
https://github.com/broala/bro-shellshock

I've added these Bro scripts to our securityonion-bro-scripts package and submitted the package for testing:

To monitor your network for exploit attempts, IDS signatures are now available from Snort VRT and Emerging Threats (ET).  Assuming you have PulledPork configured correctly, you should have received the VRT and/or ET rules in your rule update this morning.

New securityonion-nsmnow-admin-scripts package resolves two issues

securityonion-nsmnow-admin-scripts 20120724-0ubuntu0securityonion83 should resolve the following issues:

Issue 582: NSM: only run "broctl cron" if Bro is enabled
https://code.google.com/p/security-onion/issues/detail?id=582

This should avoid the situation described here:
https://groups.google.com/d/topic/security-onion/Fo4xQ7VDIyY/discussion

Issue 581: NSM: avoid filling disk if CRIT_DISK_USAGE exceeded in one day
https://code.google.com/p/security-onion/issues/detail?id=581

We still have occasional reports of disks filling up with pcaps.  I've addressed this in 3 ways:

1.  sensor-clean used to run every 5 minutes, but has been changed to run *every* minute.

2.  sensor-clean no longer ignores pcaps from the current day.  If all previous days have been removed, then it will go into the current day's directory and remove pcaps one at a time until EITHER disk is no longer critical OR there are no pcaps remaining.

3.  If sensor-clean determines that there are no pcaps remaining to purge but disk is still critical, then it will stop netsniff-ng.

New securityonion-et-rules package

I've updated our securityonion-et-rules package in preparation for our upcoming 12.04.5 ISO image.  This is a static set of free NIDS rules from Emerging Threats that is only used if you have LOCAL_NIDS_RULE_TUNING=yes in /etc/nsm/securityonion.conf (most users should have LOCAL_NIDS_RULE_TUNING=no which causes PulledPork to download updated rules from the Internet).

This package has been tested by the following (thanks!):
David Zawdie

Issues Resolved

Issue 572: securityonion-et-rules: update for new ISO
https://code.google.com/p/security-onion/issues/detail?id=572

Updating
The new package is now available in our stable repo.  Please see the following page for full update instructions:

New pcap samples package securityonion-samples-jackcr

Jack Crook provided a fun pcap (thanks Jack!):
https://twitter.com/dougburks/status/494829729523171328

I've put the pcap into a new package called securityonion-samples-jackcr, which will install the pcap to:
/opt/samples/jackcr/

This package has been tested by the following (thanks!):
Brian Kellogg
David Zawdie

Issues Resolved

Issue 568: New package securityonion-samples-jackcr
https://code.google.com/p/security-onion/issues/detail?id=568

Installation
This package will be included in the upcoming 12.04.5 ISO image, but it's an optional package so it won't automatically install on existing installations.  If you'd like to install this package onto your existing installation, you can use the graphical Update Manager or the following one-liner:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install securityonion-samples-jackcr
