Abstract

You can have a single file indicator for file objects in Cortex XSOAR or each file can have a hash as its own indicator.

Cortex XSOAR uses a single File indicator for file objects. As a result, files that appear with their SHA256 hash and all other hashes associated with the file, (MD5, SHA1, and SSDeep) are listed as properties of the same indicator. In addition, when ingesting an incident through an integration, all file information is presented as one object.

For example, when investigating an incident, in the Indicators field (Investigation or Case info tabs), click a File indicator. You can see additional information for that indicator, including:

Name

Description

SHA256

The SHA256 hash associated with this file.

MD5

The MD5 hash associated with this file.

SHA1

The SHA1 hash associated with this file.

SHA512

The SHA512 hash associated with this file.

Imphash

The imphash associated with this file.

SSDeep

The SSDeep hash associated with this file.

Size

The file size.

File Type

The file type.

File Extension

The file extension.

Associated File Names

The File.Name values associated with the indicator hash, based on File context objects created in Cortex XSOAR (automatically populated).

Path

The path of the file.

Quarantined

Whether the file is quarantined.

Signed

Whether the file is signed.

Signature Copyright

The file signature copyright.

Signature Description

The file signature description.

Download URL

The file download URL.

Modified

The date and time the File indicator was last modified.

First Seen

The date and time the file was first seen in Cortex XSOAR.

If the file appears in a different incident with a different name, and has any of the same hash values, it automatically associates with the original indicator.

Note

A new File indicator only affects new indicators ingested to the Cortex XSOAR platform. Indicators that were already in Cortex XSOAR continue to appear as their respective hash-related indicators.

If you want to have each file hash appear as its own indicator, see Configure File Indicators.
