File Indicators

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 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 on a
File
indicator. You can see additional information for that indicator, including:
  • SHA256 - The SHA256 hash associated with this file.
  • MD5 - The SHA256 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 XSOAR (automatically populated).
  • Path - The file path.
  • 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.
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, do the following:
  1. Go to
    Settings
    ADVANCED
    Indicator Types
    .
  2. Select the
    File
    indicator and click
    Disable
    .
  3. Select the following required hashes:
    • File SHA-256
    • File SHA-1
    • File MD5
    • SSDeep
  4. Click
    Enable
    .
