Detect Rare Executables Help

To successfully implement this search, you must be ingesting data that records process activity from your hosts and populating the endpoint data model with the resultant dataset. The macro filter_rare_process_allow_list searches two lookup files for allowed processes. These consist of rare_process_allow_list_default.csv and rare_process_allow_list_local.csv. To add your own processes to the allow list, add them to rare_process_allow_list_local.csv. If you wish to remove an entry from the default lookup file, you will have to modify the macro itself to set the allow_list value for that process to false. You can modify the limit parameter and search scheduling to better suit your environment.
