Did you fix the FireEye TA's eventtypes.conf? If so, please do share!

This is the unbelievably ridiculous content of eventtypes.conf from the TA-FireEye_v3 app ( https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1904 😞

[eventtype=fe]
alert = enabled
attack = enabled
email = enabled
malware = enabled
operations = enabled
ids = enabled
network = enabled
session = enabled
start = enabled
end = enabled
dhcp = enabled
vpn = enabled
communicate = enabled
proxy = enabled
web = enabled

This creates pollution into the most common CIM Data Models, and is totally unacceptable. Surely I am not the only one who has run into this and has contemplated/completed fixing it. If you have anything to share, please post here or email/PM me.

OK, here is what I have done for now with my client (I am quite sure that he is not using all of the FireEye capabilites so this may not be enough for you/rs). Put these files in the local directory of TA-FireEye_v3:

eventtypes.conf:

# Gregg Woodcock and Splunxter, Inc.

[fe_ips]
search = (( sourcetype = "fe_json_syslog" \
AND (category = "ips-event") ))

[fe_malware]
search = (( sourcetype = "fe_json_syslog" \
AND (category = "malware-object" \
  OR category = "infection-match" \
  OR category = "domain-match" \
  OR category = "malware-callback") ))

tags.conf:

# Gregg Woodcock and Splunxter, Inc.

[eventtype=fe]
# OVERRIDE THE DEFAULT SETTINGS WHICH ARE TRASH!!!!
