All the workstations in production must count with an unalterable security suite (Anti-virus, Antispyware, Host Firewall, Host-IDS, Host-IPS).
BSIMM9 CR3.4: 2. Automate malicious code detection. Automated code review is used to identify dangerous code written by malicious in-house developers or outsource providers.
CAPEC-169: Footprinting. An adversary engages in probing and exploration activities to identify constituents and properties of the target.
CAPEC-442: Infected Software. An adversary adds malicious logic, often in the form of a computer virus, to otherwise benign software. Many times, the malicious logic is inserted into empty space between legitimate code, and is then called when the software is executed.
CAPEC-549: Local Execution of Code. An adversary installs and executes malicious code on the target system in an effort to achieve a negative technical impact.
CIS Controls. 8.1 Utilize Centrally Managed Anti-Malware Software. Utilize centrally managed anti-malware software to continuously monitor and defend each of the organization’s workstations and servers.
CIS Controls. 9.4 Apply Host-Based Firewalls or Port-Filtering. Apply host-based firewalls or port-filtering tools on end systems, with a default-deny rule that drops all traffic except those services and ports that are explicitly allowed.
CIS Controls. 9.5 Implement Application Firewalls. Place application firewalls in front of any critical servers to verify and validate the traffic going to the server. Any unauthorized traffic should be blocked and logged.
CWE-923: Improper Restriction of Communication Channel to Intended Endpoints The software establishes a communication channel to (or from) an endpoint for privileged or protected operations, but it does not properly ensure that it is communicating with the correct endpoint.
