Threat event details

The Threat Events report allows you to review specific events and event details.

Threat events appear in a table. After you select a filter and dimension, you can select the type of data that you want to show in the table. In addition to data listed in the Event Dimensions help topic, you can show this data in the events table.

Event Table Column / Attribute Description
Detected Time The time when the event was detected in your local time.
Correlation If your organization uses a security connector, this column indicates whether there is a security connector event that correlates to the threat event. If there is a correlation, the column includes a View link that you can click in the Correlation table column. This link directs you to Correlation Security Connector Event(s) for Threat Event dialog where event information is provided.

Additionally, this column may show the values None or N/A. None indicates that while a sinkhole action was taken on the event, there is no correlation to a Security Connector event yet. N/A indicates that a Security Connector event correlation is not applicable because a sinkhole action was not taken on the event.

This attribute or data column does not apply to access control events.

Query Type DNS resource record type associated with the request.
Hash Hash of the HTTP response for threats.
Response Time Time when a response to a request was provided.
