Sysinternals: Sysmon V8.0, Autoruns V13.90 released

[German]Mark Russinovich has updated the two tools Sysmon and Autoruns from the Sysinternals Tools on July 5, 2018 (see this Technet article).


Sysmon V8.0

System Monitor (Sysmon) is a Windows system service and device driver. Once installed on a system, it remains resident across system reboots. The task is to monitor system activity and log it in the Windows event log. The tool provides detailed information about process creation, network connections and file creation time changes.

By collecting and then analyzing the events generated by Windows Event Collection or SIEM agents, you can identify malicious or anomalous activity and understand how intruders and malware work on your network.

Sysmon V8.0 adds rule tagging, which results in tags appearing in event log entries they generate. It also greatly expands the command-line length logged, fixes a GUID printing bug for parent process GUIDs, and prints friendly registry path names for rename operations.
