            How to extract nested variables in kwrgs?
            Asked 2022-Mar-02 at 10:23

            I have a function which is supposed to grab a query from a remote server and run it on OsQuery. I have been able to configure it so that the data is sent from the remote server and is received in the kwargs data structure.

            When I run print(kwargs) it shows a long dict, in it I have a field called 'osquery_query' which I'd like to extract and print out .

            The output looks like this:



            Answered 2022-Mar-02 at 10:23

            To get a value from nested dictionaries or other nested datastructures, you need to index each level separately, like so:

            Using OSquery to modifying or kill processes, etc
            Asked 2021-May-05 at 11:35

            From what I read osquery is used for querying / reading the system information.

            By any chance it has facility to modify the system state like killing the process or deleting a registry key ??

            I am using osqueryi commands like select * form users before diving in programatically.



            Answered 2021-Apr-26 at 14:01

            Generally not.

            osquery itself aims to not change anything in the filesystem. The main distribution has no mechanisms that would do that. (Except, of course, it's local state files)

            osquery extensions, however, can be written to do whatever the extension author desires. Further, osquery supports the idea of "writeable tables" which extensions may use to present a simpler interface.

            Check out https://blog.trailofbits.com/2018/05/30/manage-your-fleets-firewalls-with-osquery/ for a writable table example.

            How to filter out events before joining datasets with stats
            Asked 2021-Apr-15 at 21:01

            I have some events (2 different sourcetype—process_events and socket_events) that look something like this:



            Answered 2021-Apr-15 at 21:01

            One can't filter out multi-value fields before stats because it's stats that makes them multi-value. Try filtering out the undesired IP addresses before joining the events.

            Can osquery generate apt package information like it does rpm?
            Asked 2021-Feb-03 at 16:45

            I'm looking to generate lists of apt package versions for specific packages, like sudo,ssh, etc. OSQuery seems to have an option to generate this with rpm_packages however I can find no mention of apt_packages.

            I don't mean apt_sources, and the apps table appears to be a MacOS only thing.

            I might be just missing a table listing versions of binaries.



            Answered 2021-Feb-03 at 16:45

            Are you looking for the deb_packages table?

            apps is macOS specific, as it enumerates the macOS Applications.

            How to apply bool query on all elements in a list in Elasticsearch?
            Asked 2020-Oct-30 at 01:56

            First of all, I'm very new to Elasticsearch. I'm using the python library to run queries.

            I have documents with lists embedded inside other lists, for example:



            Answered 2020-Oct-29 at 23:06

            What you're seeing is a direct consequence of array flattening as described in this answer. If you're looking for a simple solution, simply apply the nested mapping, reindex, and your bool-must query will work 'correctly.'

            I'd recommend converting at least products to the nested data type; perhaps even the parent, vendors. Bear in mind, though, that multiple levels of nestedness may render your queries quite verbose and you may find yourself reversing the nestedness when trying to determine top-level counts so it's worthwhile to consider whether the index's basic building block can perhaps be a product whose vendor will be an attribute -- instead of listing multiple products under a single vendor.

            Fail to connect osquery from window server to kolide fleet

            The best way to debug this kind of issue is to test out your configuration by running osqueryd manually, rather than as a service. This will let you see the logs and get your settings correct before setting up the service.

            You'll want to use the following command in Powershell:

            Osquery takes too much space
            Asked 2020-Sep-29 at 13:36

            I got some osquery on mac os and there is a file /private/var/log/osquery/osquery-output.log. This file takes almost 16 Gb of disk space. What is it? Can i delete it safely?



            Answered 2020-Sep-29 at 13:36

            By itself, osquery does very little. It can be configured to run a variety of queries to examine system state. Depending on configuration, these results might be stored locally or sent to a log aggregator. The configuration can either be from a local file, or from a remote server.

            It sounds like you have an osquery install that is configured to log to local disk, but nothing is collecting those results.

            osquery itself does not do anything with that file. So you can certainly truncate it. (Just deleting it will likely leave an unlinked file). But that file implies a misconfigured setup.

            Should it be logging to local disk? What consumes those logs? Etc.

            It looks like you already started osqueryi in shell mode, so it is not parsing the flag you are trying to pass.

            What you are looking for is probably (from your cmd.exe shell):

            How to use "%" character in sql query on linux shell?
            Asked 2020-May-18 at 16:01

            I am trying to pull all the jdk packages installed on set of hosts by sending a sql select statement to osquery on linux shell via pssh .

            Here is the query:

            pssh -h myhosts -i 'echo "SELECT name FROM rpm_packages where name like '%jdk%';"| osqueryi --json'

            but usage of "%" is giving me below error.

            Error: near line 1: near "%": syntax error

            I tried to escape % ,but the error remains same. Any ideas how to overcome this error?



            Answered 2020-May-16 at 04:54

            You aren't getting this error from your shell but from the query parser, and it's not actually caused by the % character, but to the ' that immediately precedes it. Look at where you have quotes:

            Running a process messes up shell
            Asked 2020-Apr-15 at 07:33

            I need to run a process called osqueryi before I run my app, and when shutting down, killing that process. (It is kind of a daemon which can be queried. I need it to be running in order for my app to work).



            Answered 2020-Apr-15 at 02:12

            You tagged osquery, so... Perhaps as an alternative, don't run osqueryi that way, it's not meant to be used like that.

            The general recommendation is to use osqueryd with the configuration as you'd like it. Or, if you really want to a single invocation of osqueryi you can invoke it with a query from the command line, outputting in json:

            To download the latest stable builds and for repository information and installation instructions visit https://osquery.io/downloads. We use a simple numbered versioning scheme X.Y.Z, where X is a major version, Y is a minor, and Z is a patch. We plan minor releases roughly every two months. These releases are tracked on our Milestones page. A patch release is used when there are unforeseen bugs with our minor release and we need to quickly patch. A rare 'revision' release might be used if we need to change build configurations. Major, minor, and patch releases are tagged on GitHub and can be viewed on the Releases page. We open a new Release Checklist issue when we prepare a minor release. If you are interested in the status of a release, please find the corresponding checklist issue, and note that the issue will be marked closed when we are finished the checklist. We consider a release 'in testing' during the period of hosting new downloads on our website and adding them to our hosted repositories. We will mark the release as 'stable' on GitHub when enough testing has occurred, this usually takes two weeks.
            Building osquery from source is encouraged! Check out our build guide. Also check out our contributing guide and join the community on Slack.
