Weaponizing Splunk: Attacking the Data

Some IT administrators don’t realize that services, like those available with Splunk, can be used by attackers and penetration testers to not only attack a system, but to organize and sort the information that is returned from their attacks. This section shows how an attacker can reduce the amount of time required to between recognizance and attack.

“During penetration testing we generate a lot of logs as we attack victim organizations that all need to be reviewed and sorted. This can take a lot of time, unelss you use Splunk’s organizational features.”
-Ryan, TBG Security‘s Director of Security Engineering
