ThreatScope Mobile XDR - Using Threat Query

Last updated February 22, 2024 by Appdome

What are Threat Queries?

Threat Queries are a powerful tool within Appdome’s ThreatScope designed to help security and development teams gain deeper insights into potential security threats affecting their mobile applications.

Benefits of Using Threat Queries:

  • Sort and prioritize threats based on severity and frequency.
  • Drill down into specific threat details to understand the scope and potential impact.
  • Export query results for further analysis or for sharing with your security team.

Types of Threat Queries:

  • GeoSource IP Addresses: Investigate threats originating from specific IP addresses.
  • Impacted Devices: Identify devices potentially compromised by security threats.
  • Top Attacks: Analyze the most prevalent attack types targeting your applications.

Query Input

When constructing a query, you should provide:

  • Parameters: Specify attributes like device ID, or IP address.
  • Enter device IDs or IP addresses manually. For bulk queries, upload a CSV file with ‘Impacted Device IDs’ or ‘GeoSource IP Addresses’.


Selecting the appropriate timeframe is crucial for pinpointing threats accurately. Analyze past data according to Last Day, Last Week and Last Month to identify trends or investigate incidents that occurred in a specific period.

    • GeoSource IP Addresses: Manually enter specific IP addresses or upload a CSV file containing a list of IPs.
    • Impacted Devices: Manually enter device IDs or upload a CSV file containing device IDs.
    • Top Attacks: Select the desired number of top attacks to display.
      Run Query
  8. Run Query: Click the “Run Query” button to retrieve results.

The query will return a detailed list based on your chosen parameters. This list may include information such as:

  • Affected devices potentially compromised by threats.
  • Originating IP addresses associated with the threats.

Appdome’s Threat Query is an essential feature for security-conscious organizations. By understanding how to specify the query type, input, and timeframe, you can efficiently pinpoint threats and derive actionable insights that lead to informed decision-making and an enhanced security posture.
