Incident Details

The Incident Details window displays the information about the following:


The Summary section in the Incident Details provides the overall overview of the Asset Details, Threat Actors, and Malware Summary. 

  • Threat Actors: As the name suggests, Threat Actor(s) can be an individual or a group of attackers trying to infect your network. If such actor(s) attempt to perform a malicious activity in the network, you can get the list of these actor(s) in the Threat Actor(s) section of the Summary page. If Threat Actor(s) does not exist for the event severity score displayed in the Summary, the Threat Actor(s) is not listed. 

    All the Threat Actor(s) are listed in the Event Details of the Timeline section, irrespective of the event severity score.

  • Malware Summary: The Malware Summary lists the malware name and its description for the malicious events that occurred. 

    The following screenshot is an example that lists the Threat Actor(s) and Malware Summary of an event:

  • PM subscription to patch vulnerabilities
  • PC subscription for System Misconfiguration

Threat Risk & Exposure - Integration with Qualys VMDR

The Threat Risk & Exposure section lists the vulnerabilities linked to an incident along with the option to patch those vulnerabilities. The integration with VMDR helps you remediate endpoints based on the QID, Title, CVE, Malware, and QDS. When a Patch is available for a vulnerability, the Patch Now option is enabled. You can view the Vulnerabilities by selecting the Malware from the Filters drop-down, or by selecting the type of Host- All Hosts and Current Host.

  • All Hosts- Select this option to get the list of vulnerabilities that have impacted all the hosts. The Total Hosts column lists the hosts impacted by the vulnerability. The following screenshot is an example of the All Hosts selection:

  • Current Host- Select this option to get the list of vulnerabilities that have impacted the host for which you are viewing its Incident Details. 

    In the following screenshot, the vulnerabilities listed are for the Current Host, in this case- Desktop-v3RH712:
