WatchGuard Cloud Cyclops Blink Detector

Applies To: Cloud-managed Fireboxes, Locally-managed Fireboxes

You can use the WatchGuard Cloud Cyclops Blink Detector to determine if your Fireboxes are affected by Cyclops Blink. This tool can scan multiple Fireboxes in your account and the accounts you manage. To scan a Firebox, the device must be connected to WatchGuard Cloud.

Other detection tools are available online and from WSM. For more information, see the Diagnose section of the 4-Step Cyclops Blink Diagnosis and Remediation Plan.

To scan devices in a FireCluster, we recommend that you upload diagnostic log files (support.tgz) to the Cyclops Blink Web Detector at detection.watchguard.com. The WatchGuard Cloud Cyclops Blink Detector does not scan passive cluster members in active/passive FireClusters,

The action you must take for a Firebox depends on the scan result:

  • Cyclops Blink Indicators Detected — The Firebox is infected with the Cyclops Blink botnet. You must immediately follow the steps in the Remediate section of the 4-Step Cyclops Blink Diagnosis and Remediation Plan. If you cannot remediate immediately, we recommend you take the Firebox offline.
  • No Cyclops Blink Indicators Detected — No indicators of the Cyclops Blink botnet are detected. You must immediately follow the steps in the Prevent section of the 4-Step Cyclops Blink Diagnosis and Remediation Plan to protect your Firebox.
  • In Progress — The Cyclops Blink Detector is scanning the Firebox. Results appear in the list when ready. If you scanned a large number of Fireboxes, it might take some time for all results to appear.
  • Failed to Scan — The tool could not scan the Firebox. This might be because of an error, or because the Cyclops Blink Detector could not connect to the Firebox. For help with connection issues, see Troubleshoot Firebox Connections to WatchGuard Cloud.
  • Failed to Scan — Incomplete Results — The tool was unable to complete the scan for all known indicators. Some scans did complete successfully and nothing was detected. For help with connection issues, see Troubleshoot Firebox Connections to WatchGuard Cloud.
  • Not Scanned — You did not scan the Firebox.
