I have observed "similar" behaviour, where my macbook is active even when its lid is closed and have not been touched for several hours. In my case, the macbook was probing for wifi networks. I tried google to find an explanation why it was trying to connect to networks when it was supposed to sleep, but nothing turned up - guess there is a reason why you ...

If that's a newer MacBook, it's probably just "Power Nap". Crash reports aren't mentioned but that could be covered under "Continues background downloads of Mac App Store items, including software updates".

When you close the lid of a MacBook, it triggers a sensor which says to the running operating system "the lid is closed". It is up to the OS to decide what to do in this case. In particular, nothing forces the OS to go to sleep; the machine may perfectly operate while closed (this is not recommended because heat dissipation does not work as well when the lid ...

In the case of an HTTPS website, most IDS/IPS's don't offer the ability to upload your SSL certificates in order to decrypt the traffic in order to inspect it. In this case, your IDS/IPS's are providing little to no ...

I'll turn your question around: "What attacks can only be detected by a combination of host and network data?" And the answer to that question is: not many. The true power of correlation of host and network data is the ability to see 'beyond' the attack to see how widespread it is and where it originated from. In other words, you correlate those ...
