The SPL above uses the following Macros:
Note that macos_lolbin_filter is a empty macro by default. It allows the user to filter out any results (false positives) without editing the SPL.
How To Implement
This detection uses osquery and endpoint security on MacOS. Follow the link in references, which describes how to setup process auditing in MacOS with endpoint security and osquery.
