  • Network IDS Indicator Detail - OTX now provides support for indicators in the form of Network Intrusion Detection System rules. Included in the details pages of this new indicator type is access to data from our network of OTX participants which provides insight into the origin of attacks related to the rules. Authenticated users will be able to see the IP address of any attacker that has caused this rule to trigger on the NIDS rule details pages.
  • Expanded Indicator Metadata - Users can now provide additional details related to the indicators they share within new pulses. The system now provides the ability for the author to add a title and description for each indicator to share more details of the malicious activity reported. This allows for the categorization of indicators to help describe their role in the reported threat.
  • Private Indicators - Pulse authors can now set indicators as 'private.' This setting allows authors to create public pulses with indicators that are only available to private groups.

New Elements:
  • Pulse Locking - Authors of a pulse can now 'lock' the pulse to prevent it from being published to any additional groups. If you have a private pulse and do not want it shared beyond the scope you set, this feature should be used. Any user in a group who can view your private pulse can then publish it to another group unless this flag is set.
  • Enhanced Searching - The search box now provides typeahead support for the search modifiers supported by the system, making it easier to craft artisan searches.
Defects:
  • UI Load Performance - The table showing the indicator details found on the Pulse pages has been updated to improve the loading time for pulses with large sets of indicators.

New Elements:
  • Enhanced Search - Indicator Support: Users can now view and search for indicators in the system. In the browse page, users can search for indicators including a new partial search to help identify matches across different indicator types. Note: at this point search is limited to indicators explicitly added to pulses by users of the system. Additional information may be available for indicators that have been analyzed by the OTX analysis systems and will require an exact search string to locate.
Defects:
  • URL Pulse Extraction Issue: Fixed issue which causes certain URL's to cause an error during the pulse extraction process. In particular on domains hosting more than one blog across different domains (using SNI) were affected by this issue.

New Elements:
  • Usability Fix: When viewing the details of a pulse the summary of the related countries now renders low volume countries in a group titled 'other' to prevent the labels from overflowing the visible area.
  • Pulses now support new metadata. You can add industries, targeted countries and an adversary to a pulse during creation or as part of a suggested edit to a pulse. These fields are now available as search modifers using the syntax "industry:<search term>", "country:<search term>", and "adversary:<search term>"
  • OTX will now occasionally survey users to gather information on our NPS (Net Promotor Score). The survey should not appear for any one user more than once every three months! Hope it is not a bother and that you like what we have done
