Powershell reporting in access protection does not show

Hi,

I have a few different ens 10.6 threat prevention access protection policies and rules.

I have been reviewing this document.  testing and looking at queries.

https://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-10292.

i have one policy with a 'Monitor Powershell usage' rule that was setup and reports in and I see data in a query.

 

In the second policy, i created a new rule and name it 'Monitor Powershell usage W10'. but this does not show up as a "threat name" for queries.  I have block and report selected in both rules for testing.  Yes it blocks.

when testing the second policy on a system, the policy is applied and functions but does not report.

what am i missing that it does not report back to ePO console?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Powershell reporting in access protection does not show

 Hi @McADOC1 

Does the second query show up on the Locally on Endpoint ?

If no, please also check "AccessProtection_Activity.log" in the following location and verify if there are any events for the second rule.

C:\ProgramData\McAfee\Endpoint Security\Logs

Thanks

Re: Powershell reporting in access protection does not show

Hi,
Thank you for the follow up.

I am not clear on what you are asking here - "Does the second query show up on the Locally on Endpoint ?"

 

on the endpoint in the access protection log, i get no errors and the correct entry.

2/2/2021 7:45:59 AM mfeesp(5920.1488) <SYSTEM> ApBl.AP.Activity: domain\user ran C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe, which tried to access the file C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe, violating the rule "Monitor PowerShell Usage W10", and was blocked. For information about how to respond to this event, see KB85494.

 

Issue is, 1. i am not able to create report in epo for specified rule above as that rule does not show as a threat name.
2. the endpoint does not appear to be sending events to epo for this rule.
I tested with eicar also and the event for eicar did show in epo.

thoughts?
