Server Maintenance, System Infected?

So after my morning coffee and e-mail and i decided to check some of my servers. Especially our Exchange 2013 on premise which lays on a Clustered volume. The server is Windows 2012 Standard, fully patched as of last week with Symantec Endpoint Antivirus installed. When I opened the remote session I saw some notification from Symantec that went away after 1-2 seconds.. after some scavenging off the logs i found this:

[SID 25912] System Infected: Ghostnet Backdoor Activity attack blocked. Traffice has been blocked for this application: System.

What should be my next actions as a good sysadmin?

Where to report pc that was being used for identity theft? Off site pc compromised.

One of my off site computers seems to been being remoted into since april. It runs a basic task at a building so its never looked at.

 

Teamviewered into it to do a check and caught someone attempting to sign into thousands of accounts. Installed maas emailer programs, tor like browser. There's list of thousands of emails, scans of checks, pictures, possible bank accounts.

 

Went to the police in person and they just said i cant make police reports for other people, as i myself personally werent being hacked. Where do i go from here?

 

They got in as someone left the rdp port open on the router at that location from initial setup.

Its probably DNS

Suddenly on Friday, a random subsection of my users cannot connect. We have a Guest SSID that is somewhat separate from our main SSID and uses the Aruba AP's as DHCP server. Anyone connected to that network seems to be connecting fine. Some people on the main network are having "Resolving host" issues. Each day, it is a different set of users who cannot access the internet. Nothing has changed on my network to suddenly cause this. Additionally, my backup device is suddenly throwing errors. I find that the address activate.shadowprotect.com needs to be accessible. I try it in Chrome and it works. I try to ping it from the same computer, cannot find host. I go to my firewall (that is plugged directly into the modems) and try to ping it from there and get the same error. I don't even know where to begin. I have checked my DNS forwarders and they are the local Comcast business address and then the 2 Google addresses. My DNS server has not changed (and is actually going to be replaced in the next couple of weeks). Can anyone help me know where to begin on troubleshooting this?

Edit 1: One of the other servers is backing up fine. Can ping activate.shadowprotect.com fine on this server. All DNS, DHCP, etc is set up identically on this server.

Where do you stand on Browser Extensions?

We've recently been working on ways to cut down malicious ads in our smb environments, and uBlock is obviously an easy way to filter out a lot of it. I'm apprehensive to deploy it though, since it's a 3rd party that we don't necessarily trust. How do you handle browser extensions in your environments?

And before it's brought up, yes we can block ads completely via our firewall but it messes up page layouts and generally makes things look terrible. I'm more interested in how people handle browser extensions overall rather than a specific answer to this adware problem.

DPI-SSL, doesnt it break TLS?

I use a Sonicwall TZ-600 series firewall router with my small business. It works out pretty well and I'm considering licensing the Deep Packet SSL inspection feature because a lot of malware and RAT stuff is using SSL these days to bypass traditional IPS routines. I understand this involves setting up certs on client computers to trust the router as an intermediary and I'm pretty sure I can automate that with group policy.

My question is more about whether this breaks SSL operation for web sites. My understanding is that this can't support TLS and instead downgrades any https request into SSL v2/3. That seems problematic because increasingly sites are not supporting anything less than TLS 1.0.

Am I mistaken in my understanding of this?

Internal Instant Messaging Program Needed - What Do You Recommend

I'm looking to implement an instant messaging program for internal use only. One thing I would like to be able to do is to setup groups that you can message at a time. So, if 3 people are in the group, you could send a message once and it would pop up on all 3 computers.

I have used Pidgin for this in the past but need to investigate if it can do groups.

I thought I would see if there was anything that you guys have used also that would fit the bill.

Thanks for the help!

Multiple default gateways on Windows servers - Advice?

We have a DMZ for our public web services and each server has multiple NICs; including one for website bindings, one for server management, NLB etc - These are both on the same subnet therefore duplicate default gateways exist. I'm wondering what people do in this situation to keep traffic flow consistent? We're having issues whereby when we restart a server the NICs initialise in a random order therefore the default routes in the table change and this causes problems. An example of this is when one of these servers needs to send an email through our Exchange server and the receive connectors looking for certain IPs. The only way I can think of resolving this is to set custom metrics in the routing table on each server.

Is there an easier way?

 

I thought about setting up the management interface on our LAN subnet, but surely this defeats the object of the DMZ because it's then not quarantined?

RingCentral Desktop - Constant DNS Queries to Google

I just wanted to see if any other admins are seeing something similar on their network? We have a lot of users with laptops using RingCentral for Windows (VOIP) and it seems as though the software makes DNS queries for it's domain often and straight to Google.

I have DNSMasq running in the office for caching and the IP's for DNS1/2 are given out via DHCP from the router. Spoiler alert, Googles DNS servers (8.8.8.8) are not listed ANYWHERE in ANY of the configurations for any internal services. It's not even a forward lookup zone for DNSMasq.

I'm seeing a constant flow of DNS queries for "ringcentral.com" hitting Google directly:

Is anyone else with RingCentral seeing this?

Creating and securing service accounts (advice)

I am a new sysadmin and starting to tackle how we create service accounts. A lot of my learning came after 2008 so I really did not realize service accounts do not exist on 2003. My question is how do I go about securing these type of "service" accounts. One example we use lansweeper which requires for its scanning administrative rights. The end result being that we have a user account with administrative power. To help secure this a bit better I pushed out a group policy to all workstations to add a security group to the administrators group, which secures things a little bit in the way of its no longer able to login to servers, but it is also not able to scan the servers either. Just looking for a better way of doing things.

Another post about religion...

We have several large storage arrays connected to more than a few vmware hosts. The OS guys want to connect 10+, 10G links to the same switch the storage arrays are connected to (with 4, 10G links each... several installations).

I tell them they're Nucking Futs, and they're going to saturate the links to the storage arrays, and after a while, they're never going to get the 10GB links they're asking for.

They tell me that the file transfers will be so fast, that 2 computers will never be talking at the same time... They also tell me that the storage isn't fast enough to transmit 40GB of data anyway... Which.... I'm not sure how that helps their argument... and not sure how to respond.

Yes, even big tech companies overlook security.

Email from one of the big printer companies is getting caught in our spam filter. My users that are interacting with the company go straight to the CIO, jumping the helpdesk, to complain.

I look, and to my surprise, the big tech company doesn't have an SPF record. I check a few different SPF lookup tools just to be sure. Our email policy is that if you don't have an spf record published, your email goes through spam filtering and can't be whitelisted, so sometimes their emails are getting held or rejected.

I've had to tell my affected users multiple times that yes, i'm not wrong, the big tech company doesn't have their email services set up right. While i don't mind responding to their questions normally, it's frustrating because I don't second-guess their decisions, but they seem to be fine with second-guessing mine.

The big walk-away is that GPUs are rapidly becoming an expected and standard component of computing, table stakes in many cases, across the computing platform. Big deal right there and hence the frothiness of much of the coverage.…

Updating BIOS to latest version on multiple DELL Windows devices?

There is a new version of the BIOS that patches AMT holes on DELL laptops (at least for E5570).

How do you update BIOS versions on computers on the network?

I checked DELL Command | Configure but I did not see the bios update option. There were only configuration change options.

I googled several times but without any precious effect.

Bringing the company out of 1997 and overhauling EVERYTHING (advice needed)

Sorry, this is a little long. I really hope this is the right thread for it as I couldn't find a better sub for these questions.

I'm being hired by a small company that is in dire need of help. I'm primarily being hired on for web development, e-comm, marketing analytics, etc. but having toured the offices and seen their setup we all agreed that I need to overhaul pretty much everything. It's a complete cluster fuck. I'm not a sysadmin, but I've done my fair share to get companies fixed up that I've worked for in the past. So I'm not a complete noob, but I'm not pro either.

I'm going to lay out the problems and some potential solutions I've come up with, but if you have specific suggestions please share them with me.

Rack Setup and Network

It's a mess. I'm going to have to build a network diagram just to get my head around it, but suffice it to say, they don't do backups, they don't have cable management, nothing is labeled, and the rack is 6" from the furnace in the same room. FML.

Also, there's only one network SSID that's shared by everyone - for both personal and business needs. I'll get into device management below, but there's supposedly several network drives that are open to everyone on the network who cares to look. WTF.

No one could confirm for me that they even have a firewall, so at the very least it's unmanaged.

BYOD (bring your own device)

There are no policies on devices. Half the staff is running chromebooks, 30% are running various versions of Windows, 15% are running various OS X versions, and the rest are on who knows what (mobile, Linux, etc). After talking to various department heads, it seems that 50% of the devices are personal devices.

With approx 100 employees, they need a device policy. Nothing they do is resource intensive - 90% is in the browser - so I'm leaning towards getting everyone company Chromebooks and setting them on department networks with set policies via firewall. I'm thinking of getting them a Fortigate 100e. Thoughts?

Company User Management

This is the one area I'll give them a point. They use G Suite for user management. This will easy device management somewhat. That said, nothing is managed actively in G Suite currently, they just use it for branded email hosting and Drive.

They've also got Google Cloud Print setup for some of the departments, but it's all fucky and only works some of the time. I'm thinking about setting up Papercut to better manage this. Suggestions?

Accounting

They're using desktop Quickbooks and I guess have the license installed on the several accountants computers. The accounting software doesn't talk to the Sales CRM and doesn't talk to the inventory control management system (because they don't have one). And they don't backup Quickbooks. cringe

If they're going to stay with Quickbooks, I think they need to get the online version. But let me know if there is something better.

Inventory Control Management System

As I mentioned above, they don't use one. Supposedly, they had a vendor install one with RFID stations, but everyone I asked about it seemed to have "heard it from Joe" but no one knows first hand. They have 10+ warehouses and I didn't see anything to indicate there was any attempt at a system installation. Shit could be walking out the back door and they wouldn't know.

Because the sales department uses Zoho CRM for tracking leads/clients and doing campaigns, I'm wondering if using Zoho Inventory could work and I can integrate it with their e-comm shopping cart as well Quickbooks... but truth is I need to do a lot more research and talk to key decision makers to make sure it'll fit the businesses needs. Honestly, I have a feeling that something like Cin7 would be better suited to their needs.

Security Cameras

Supposedly they are wired up, but nothing is working so I'm going to have to sort that out. I'm not the best at IP cameras, but I've installed a few for clients so I'll manage.

Security

It's a freaking joke. Passwords are pretty much Hunter2 and p@ssword and are written on notes just sitting on peoples' desks.

They need enterprise password management. Again, I go back to Zoho because they already use it and it offers Zoho Vault, but I've never used Vault so would have to do more research. And only their sales department uses Zoho, so they might need something like Lastpass for business. Thoughts?

WHEW

And that doesn't include all the web dev help they need (they're still on Wix ffs), marketing, SEO, analytics, etc.

This company needs a lot of work. They're trying to grow out of their old, bad processes and "we just use paper" mentality but it's been a broken system for quite a while. There's some good folks there trying to push this initiative forward, but I can tell they've been fighting with one arm tied behind their backs for a while now.

My question to r/sysadmin is in what order of importance would you tackle this? I don't want to break their currently network/setup so I'm going to have to be careful about changing and upgrading things. Obviously I need to create a network map first. I was thinking of using PRTG unless you all have a better solution.

Any and all advice welcome.
