Snapshot Exfiltration Detector
The Snapshot Exfiltration Detector alerts when AWS EC2 snapshots are maliciously exported or when permissions are granted to an unknown account in preparation for copying a snapshot. The detector looks for a sequence of events where a user is granted permissions to an EC2 instance snapshot and then the snapshot is copied to another account within a specified timeframe.
This detector scores process events for a set timeframe using predetermined rules and then uses these scores to identify potential Snapshot Exfiltration activity, published as alerts to the Secureworks® Taegis™ XDR Dashboard.
