Goal

Paste sites such as pastebin.com can be used by attackers to host malicious scripts, configuration files, and other text data. The files are then downloaded to the host using a network utility such as wget or curl. These sites may also be used to exfiltrate data.

Strategy

Detect when a process performs a DNS lookup for a paste site.

Triage and response

  1. Check if the application {{@process.executable.name}} is expected to make connections to {{@dns.question.name}}.
  2. If the DNS lookup is unexpected, contain the host or container and roll back to a known good configuration.
  3. Follow your organization’s internal processes for investigating and remediating compromised systems.
