1 A Best Practice Approach to Third Party Patching Mike Grueber Senior Product Manager 1

2 Effective patch management is essential 90% of successful attacks occurred against previously known vulnerabilities where a patch or secure configuration standard was already available. Terrence Cosgrove Gartner Symposium/IT Expo Managing the Next Generation Desktop SYMANTEC VISION

3 Agenda 1 Importance of third party applications 2 The 4A model: A best practice approach 3 Tips and tricks 4 Additional resources SYMANTEC VISION

4 Top 15 Most Vulnerable Applications Application Total High Medium Low Score Apple Safari Mozilla Firefox Goggle Chrome Microsoft Internet Explorer Adobe Flash Player Adobe Reader Java Runtime Environment Adobe Acrobat Adobe Air Mozilla SeaMonkey Microsoft Office Mozilla Thunderbird Adobe Shockwave Player Oracle Database Server Microsoft Visio Based on data feeds from National Vulnerability Database SYMANTEC VISION

5 Internet Browsers and Plug-Ins IT organizations must strive for continuous improvement in vulnerability detection and rapid security patch management, especially in often overlooked non-microsoft components that are web-facing. All internet-based applications especially browsers and browser plug-ins (i.e., Adobe and Apple QuickTime), should be a top patching priority. Gartner Research Note, Top 10 Steps to Avoid Malware Infections SYMANTEC VISION

6 Internet Security Report Year in Review 30% increase in overall number of vulnerabilities (6,253) 161% increase in new vendors affected by vulnerabilities Chrome and Safari vulnerabilities on the rise 346 vulnerabilities affecting browser plug-ins SYMANTEC VISION

8 The 4A model: A best practices approach SYMANTEC VISION

9 The Primary Challenge Help Security and Operations teams strike an optimal balance between risk and cost Security Team: Risk Vulnerabilities: Coverage Timeliness Operations Team: Impact & Cost Patches & Workarounds: Coverage Accurate priorities Optimal process Minimal impact SYMANTEC VISION

10 The 4A Model Security Team Compliance Report Impact Report Risk Assessment Computer and Server Admins Change Management Team Remediation Strategy SYMANTEC VISION

11 The 4A Model Assessment Phase Primary Role: Security Officer Inputs: Security advisories/bulletins and threat management alerts/feeds List of endpoints that are likely to have a given vulnerability Goals: Learn as soon as possible about potential updates Perform an initial evaluation of the situation Assign a priority to updates Promptly notify the appropriate people/organizations Output: Risk Assessment assigning priority to each update SYMANTEC VISION

12 Assessment Phase Nature of Vulnerability SYMANTEC VISION

13 Assessment Phase Impact on Your Environment SYMANTEC VISION

14 Assessment Phase - Define Custom Severity Levels SYMANTEC VISION

15 Assessment Phase - Assign Custom Severity Levels SYMANTEC VISION

16 The 4A Model Analysis Phase Primary Role: Change Manager Input: Risk Assessment Goals: Identify the full scope Assess the potential impact Deliver the Remediation Strategy Output: Remediation Strategy, which identifies updates to be applied, endpoints to be targeted and excluded, roll back plan, etc. SYMANTEC VISION

17 Analysis Phase Release Vehicles Monthly Releases Severity 2 updates Rollout to begin on Thursday following second Tuesday of each month (i.e. Patch Tuesday ) Bi-annual Releases Severity 3 updates Rollout to begin on Thursday following monthly release during February and August Out of Band Releases Severity Level 1 updates No set rollout schedule SYMANTEC VISION

18 Analysis Phase Phased Rollouts To mitigate risk, rollout updates to different groups of computers in phases Test environment (lab) Pilot group (often subset of IT group, or power users of an application) Production (computers in production environment often broken down into multiple groups) If problems discovered during testing Defer rollout of update Exclude certain computers from rollout In addition to prioritizing updates, also prioritize groups of computers to which update will be distributed Business criticality Likelihood of exposure to vulnerability System availability requirements System redundancy SYMANTEC VISION

19 The 4A Model Application Phase Primary Role: Computer/Server Administrator Input: Remediation Strategy Goals: Apply software updates on a timely basis Apply software updates in a manner that appropriately mitigates the risks involved Output: Compliance Report verifying that required updates have been successfully applied to a requisite percentage of relevant endpoints SYMANTEC VISION

20 Application Phase Phased Rollouts Release Date Test Group (Lab) Pilot Group (IT) Production Group #1 Production Group #2 Production Group #3 SYMANTEC VISION

21 Application Phase Phased Rollouts SYMANTEC VISION

22 Application Phase Phased Rollouts SYMANTEC VISION

23 Application Phase - Compliance Report Verify that expected compliance rate was achieved according to terms of SLA Note that Compliance Rate is calculated based on computers that have been scanned SYMANTEC VISION

24 The 4A Model Advancement Phase Primary Roles: All involved in process Inputs: Goals: Lessons learned Data analysis Ongoing evaluation and fine-tuning of process Continuous improvement Output: Process improvements SYMANTEC VISION

25 Tips and Tricks SYMANTEC VISION

26 Installing under System Account Some third party vendor packages (e.g. Sun JRE) cannot be installed under System Account By default, Patch policies install updates under the System Account The account used to install each package can be configured in Resource Manager SYMANTEC VISION

27 Disabling previously installed versions in use Updates to Sun JRE require that previously installed versions be disabled before installing a new version/update The batch file which drives the installation of Sun JRE updates does not disable previously installed versions before attempting to install the new version/update, as this could result in unexpected user disruption Workaround is documented in release notes (i.e. Add 'tskill java /A' command to batch file) SYMANTEC VISION

28 Disabling previously installed versions in use View command line information in Resource Manager SYMANTEC VISION

29 Disabling previously installed versions in use Locate batch file in folder for package associated with update Modify batch file SYMANTEC VISION

30 Maintaining application customizations Third party vendors such as Adobe sometimes address security issues in packages that install a full version of the application rather than in a hot fix that only updates the affected files Updates distributed as full installation packages may fail to preserve customizations made to previously installed versions of the application (e.g. turning off an auto update feature) Customizations can be preserved by: Running a separate task following installation of the update; Creating a transform file, adding the transform file to the package folder associated with the update, and creating a custom command line for the update package SYMANTEC VISION

31 Application Customizations - Adobe Flash Auto-update configuration settings stored in mms.cfg file For Flash 8 and later, mms.cfg is stored in the following location: Windows NT, 2000: \\WINNT\System32\Macromed\Flash Windows XP, Vista: \\WINDOWS\System32\Macromed\Flash Windows 64 bit: \\Windows\SysWOW64 Parameter Default Description AutoUpdateDisable 0 0 allows auto-update based on user settings. 1 disables auto-update. SilentAutoUpdateEnable 1 0 allows background update. 1 disables background update. For more information, see: kb/administration-configure-auto-update-notification.html SYMANTEC VISION

32 Application Customizations - Adobe Acrobat and Reader Three ways to customize installation Command line Changes to registry following distribution Customization wizard For more information, see Enterprise Administration Guide: ttachments/acrobat_enterprise_administration.pdf SYMANTEC VISION

33 Adobe Acrobat and Reader Command Line Set value of Windows Installer properties on command line e.g. msiexec /i "[UNC PATH]\AdbeRdr1010_en_US.msi" EULA_ACCEPT=YES /qn SYMANTEC VISION

34 Adobe Acrobat and Reader Registry changes Administrator s Information Manager (dictionary of 450 registry/plist preferences) Example #1 Disable automatic updates and remove associated user interface items SYMANTEC VISION

35 Adobe Acrobat and Reader Registry Changes Example #2 Disable prompts for upgrades to next major version (e.g to 11.0) For more information, see download/attachments/ /aim.air SYMANTEC VISION

36 Adobe Acrobat and Reader Customization Wizard Free utility that enables pre-deployment installation customization Creates transform file that gets applied to.msi at installation time See: ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/acrobat/win/10.x/ /misc/ SYMANTEC VISION

37 Adding Transform File to Software Update Package SYMANTEC VISION

38 Creating Custom Command Line SYMANTEC VISION
