Re: LAN Virus outbreak Procedures

forgot to add you need to identify the propagation method, and its potential
to infect other hosts.  If it does do some sort of worm like activity, that
needs to be your first thing that you mitigate.

Sounds like you need to take a quick step back and assess your position:


   - What malware are you working with?  (any details online?)
   - What are its specific characteristics?
   - How many potential machines?
   - Does it phone home in any way?
   - What tools/systems do you have in place that can *detect* an infected
   system?
   - What tools do you have that can clean an infected system?

Then design your incident response from there.

Hey everyone just wondering what kinds of procedures you are using to
prevent and stop virus outbreaks on your local network after some genius end
user investigates child porn on local network PCs. Do most of you use
microsofts firewall with GP and just open exceptions for the applicatoins
that need it or run another piece of software. I have a massive infection
that i cannot track down our Eset is catching them but my network is nothing
but trojan packets we were not running an internal firewall (previous Admin
setup) without hardend systems, So do i start hardening systems first and
then do a GP with Firewall or does anyone have any better suggestions first
to get my network back and clean the infection second to setup the correct
way so there is no next time..As always thanks so much to the PDC community
you guys are the best.
