Is there an IPS Signature for cve-2020-0796 "EternalDarkness" yet?

Jump to solution

It seems that many other vendors have release a signature for cve-2020-0796 which is a wormable remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability in Microsoft Server Message Block 3.1.1 (SMBv3) also known as EternalDarkness. Unfortunately my NSM version does not support Snort rules, so I have to rely on McAfee to provide a signature for this vulnerability. Is there any information regarding a signature for this for the NSP?

Hi @wohlebnt_HZA 

Coverage for CVE-2020-0796 has been released on 10th March Signature set version (10.8.7.2). Kindly upgrade to the latest signature and you should be able to find via CVE ID.

If someone has an updated NSM which allows custom snort rules you can implement the following snort rule for compressed SMBv3 traffic.

###############

# Rules by Claroty
# This rules will detect SMB compressed communication by the SMB protocol identifier.

# The use of the offset and depth parameter is designed to prevent false positives and to allow the NetBios Layer
