Azure Dedicated Host - Your very own private cloud in Azure
Azure Security Center helps customers deal with myriads of threats using advanced analytics backed by global threat intelligence. In addition, a team of security researchers often work directly with customers to gain insight into security incidents affecting Microsoft Azure customers, with the goal of constantly improving Security Center detection and alerting capabilities. In the previous blog post " How Azure Security Center helps reveal a Cyberattack ", security researchers detailed the stages of one real-world attack campaign that began with a brute force attack detected by Security Center and the steps taken to investigate and remediate the attack. Our initial investigation started when Azure Security Center detected suspicious process execution and created an alert like the one below. The alert provided details such as date and time of the detected activity, affected resources, subscription information, and included a link to a detailed report about hacker tools like the one detected in this case. We suspect one of the administrators on the box was trying to download tools that are usually used to patch or "crack" some software keys. Malware is frequently installed along with these tools allowing attackers a backdoor and access to the box. Two days later we observed the same activity with different file names.
