Microsoft Defender is now detecting Zerologon attacks
Microsoft has added support for Zerologon detection to Microsoft Defender for Identity to allow Operations Security teams to detect attacks within the company that attempt to exploit this critical vulnerability.
Microsoft Defender for Identity (formerly known as Azure Advanced Threat Protection or Azure ATP) is a cloud-based security solution designed to utilize indoor Active Directory signals to detect and analyze compromised identities, advanced threats, and malware. confidential information activity targeting a registered organization.
"Microsoft Defender for Identity can detect this vulnerability early on," said Microsoft Program Manager Daniel Naim. "It covers both aspects of exploiting and controlling the circulation of Netlogon."
Notifications that appear whenever exploit Zerologon or related activity is detected will allow SecOps teams to quickly receive information about the device or domain controller behind attack attempts.
Alerts will also provide information that can help identify targeted information if the attacks were successful.
"Finally, customers using Microsoft 365 Defender can take full advantage of the strength of Microsoft Defender for Identity signals and alerts, combined with behavioral events and crawls from Microsoft Defender for Endpoint," Naim added.
"This coordinated protection allows you to not only monitor your efforts to exploit Netlogon over network protocols, but also view the device process and file activity associated with exploit."
