Splunk query to find systems with wireshark installed


Is there a way to use Splunk to find out if wireshark is installed on any of the systems? Is there a query for this

In order to search for something in Splunk ("query" the data as you said) you must first have the data from which you want to search ingested into Splunk.

So if you have such data (for example from some endpoint inventory software or from installer logs), you will probably be able to find some information about the wireshark.

But the main question is whether you have this data.

Splunk on its own is "just" an data analysis platform. It's not a network monitor, endpoint manager, vulnerability scanner and so on.

if you have this information on your logs which have ingested into splunk then you can query this information.

  • What logs you have?
  • What platforms those contains?
  • What you have already tried?
