Splunk® App for PCI Compliance

Installation and Configuration Manual

Endpoint Product Versions

This report provides a summary and detail view of all PCI assets and the most current product versions installed. Use this report to identify any assets that are not using the current antimalware product versions and take appropriate measures to ensure these systems are updated.

PCI DSS requires that assets within the cardholder data environment have antimalware technology installed and working to protect against viruses, worms, trojans, and other malware-based threats. The best antimalware software has limited effectiveness if it does not have the current antivirus product versions.

Review this report at least once per day, or more frequently if you are collecting data from antimalware solutions more frequently.

Relevant data sources

Relevant data sources for this report include endpoint engine version information, such as antivirus, endpoint protection, and others.

How to configure this report

  1. Index endpoint product version data from an antivirus software. Not all antivirus solutions provide this information in the log data.
  2. Map the data to the following Common Information Model fields: dest, product_version, vendor_product. CIM-compliant add-ons for these data sources perform this step for you.
  3. Tag the activity data with "malware", "operations", and "attack".

Report description

The data in the Endpoint Product Versions report is populated by malware_operations_tracker lookup. This lookup is created by the Endpoint - Malware Operations Tracker - Lookup Gen saved search.

Review each lookup generating search to learn more about the search schedule and time range.
