I noticed a strong gap for particular types of service control manager Windows event logs for starting, stopping, installing, etc Windows events.
The use case for this was driven by a rule to look for privilege escalation attacks using PSEXEC: Services were installed by the attacking user against the target system.
This can also be used for configuration change monitoring.
I obtained most of the event mappings from both real events and the Microsoft technet articles at #http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd349427(v=ws.10).aspx
place into $ARCSIGHT_HOME/current/user/agent/fcp/windowsfg/windows_2008/ or windows_2012 folder.
The filename on mine is 'hardwareevents.service_control_manager.sdkkeyvaluefilereader.properties' because I am using Windows event forwarding.
If you are using a local Windows unified connector, change the first part of the filename from 'hardwareevents' to 'system'.
Have fun, arcsighters!
