    Release Notes CSE(SEIM) (Content Release) - January 12, 2024

    The most recent changes include new log mappers, parsers, and normalization schema metadata in addition to Cloud SIEM rules. In addition, a number of rules have been improved to include more accurate MITRE ATT&CK® method and strategy tags.


    Improved expressions for more precise detections and a reduction in false positives in event matching are one of the updated rules. AWS and Azure activities, DLL loads, suspicious Lambda functions, RAT activities, script executions, process spawning, and modifications to Windows Update Agent DLLs and XSL script processing are just a few of the threat scenarios that are covered by this update.

    Log Mappers

    New 1Password audit and usage actions, new Zeek DNS and HTTP activities and new Zeek conn activity.


    New /Parsers/System/1Password/1Password, new /Parsers/System/1PasswordC2C/1PasswordC2C and new /Parsers/System/Zeek/Zeek.

    Release Notes Service - January 15, 2024

    An update for better efficiency and data collecting has been made to the Active Directory JSON - OpenTelemetry program. The sumo.datasource value changes from Active Directory to Windows, resolving double data ingestion for users with both apps installed. Note: The Active Directory app will not display pre-upgrade data. Update the collection configuration by following the procedures if you're upgrading just the Active Directory app.

    1.Open the configuration file located in C:\ProgramData\Sumo Logic\OpenTelemetry Collector\config\conf.d.

    2.Update the following attributes:

    key: sumo.datasource

    value: windows

    action: insert

    3.Restart the collector by using the following Powershell command Restart-Service -Name OtelcolSumo.

    To avoid consuming twice the data, if both apps are installed, remove the Active Directory OTEL YAML configuration. If you merely have Windows - OpenTelemetry installed, nothing needs to be done.

    Customers using POV Trial plans are now notified by Sumo Logic of the expiration date of their trial term in two UI locations: the Child org table and the details view of the selected organization.
