Getting Data In

How to blacklist security events by regex?

Hi all,


I'm attempting to exclude specific undesired data from the security logs. Is there a way to minimize the number of items on the exclusion list, considering that we can only add up to 10 items to the blacklist due to limitations. Is there a possibility of consolidating the blacklist by, for example, appending a "|" (pipe) at the end of each blacklisted item, thereby reducing the total number of entries in the blacklist while still achieving the desired exclusion?

blacklist1 = EventCode="4662" Message="Object Type:(?!\s*(groupPolicyContainer|computer|user))"
blacklist2 = EventCode="4648|5145|4799|5447|4634|5156|4663|4656|5152|5157|4658|4673|4661|4690|4932|4933|5158|4957|5136|4674|4660|4670|5058|5061|4985|4965"
blacklist3 = EventCode="4688" Message="(?:New Process Name:).+(?:SplunkUniversalForwarder\\bin\\splunk.exe)|.+(?:SplunkUniversalForwarder\\bin\\splunkd.exe)|.+(?:SplunkUniversalForwarder\\bin\\btool.exe)"
blacklist4 = EventCode="4688" Message="(?:New Process Name:).+(?:SplunkUniversalForwarder\\bin\\splunk-winprintmon.exe)|.+(?:SplunkUniversalForwarder\\bin\\splunk-powershell.exe)|.+(?:SplunkUniversalForwarder\\bin\\splunk-regmon.exe)|.+(?:SplunkUniversalForwarder\\bin\\splunk-netmon.exe)|.+(?:SplunkUniversalForwarder\\bin\\splunk-admon.exe)|.+(?:SplunkUniversalForwarder\\bin\\splunk-MonitorNoHandle.exe)|.+(?:SplunkUniversalForwarder\\bin\\splunk-winevtlog.exe)|.+(?:SplunkUniversalForwarder\\bin\\splunk-perfmon.exe)|.+(?:SplunkUniversalForwarder\\bin\\splunk-wmi.exe)|.+(?:SplunkUniversalForwarder\\bin\\splunk\-winhostinfo\.exe)"
blacklist5 = EventCode="4688" Message="(?:Process Command Line:).+(?:system32\\SearchFilterHost.exe)|.+(?:find/i)|.+(?:WINDOWS\\system32\\conhost.exe)"
renderXml=true

Yes, what you describe is allowed as long as the text after the '=' is a valid regular expression.
