Error description

  • When selecting 'This information should contribute to the name
    of the associated offense(s)' in a Rule Reponse for an offense
    generated by a rule testing the building block 'when the
    event(s) have not been detected by one or more of these log
    sources for this many seconds', the description of the offense
    is not set to the event description.
    For example:
    1. Create a new rule that tests this building block: "when the
    event(s) have not been detected by one or more of these log
    sources for this many seconds".
    2. In the rule response, check the "Dispatch New Event" box.
    3. Give the event a descriptive name.
    3. In the section that appears after checking this box, check
    "Ensure the dispatched event is part of an offense" under
    "Event Details".
    4. Under "Offense Naming", check "This information should
    contribute to the name of the associated offense(s)".
    5. Wait for the rule to be triggered and observe that the
    Description field of the offense generated is not set to the
    name of the event that was specified, but is instead "Log
    source 'xxxx' has stopped emitting events".
    

Local fix

  • Where possible, change option 4 in the example of above to use
    "This information should set or replace the name of the
    associated offense(s)" configured within in the Rule Response.
