Dependent upon volume, enable on critical endpoints or all. \ This analytic identifies the usage of Get-WMIObject Win32_Group, which is typically used as a way to identify groups on the endpoint. Typically, by itself, is not malicious but may raise suspicion based on time of day, endpoint and username. \ During triage, review parallel processes using an EDR product or 4688 events. It will be important to understand the timeline of events around this activity. Review the entire logged PowerShell script block.
