Sessions Report

This report documents indicators and activity on a session-by-session basis. This report includes: the communication path each session used to reach you, MD5 hashes of files put on disk during that session, miscellaneous indicators (e.g., service names), and a timeline of post-exploitation activity. This report is a fantastic tool to help a network defense team understand all of red’s activity and match their sensors to your activity.
