Script to show if Crowdstrike Falcon Sensor is installed

Hi, I am trying to find a way to see if there is a way to show if a program is installed or missing on specific machines. We want to make sure everyone has Crowdstrike Falcon sensor installed and running.

Here's what we're using to report on the installed version - you should be able to use the "Not Installed" criteria in a smart group for your purposes.

I think that script is based on the pre-5.3x versions of the Falcon sensor, because a lot of that info moved into the output from falconctl instead of the kernel variables. Here's what we're using, which has been tested with version 5.11 through 6.18:

#!/bin/bash

# Find falconctl in /Library or /Applications/Falcon.app, or report if it's not there
if [ -e /Library/CS/falconctl ]; then
    falconctlPath="/Library/CS/falconctl"
elif [ -e /Applications/Falcon.app/Contents/Resources/falconctl ]; then
    falconctlPath="/Applications/Falcon.app/Contents/Resources/falconctl"
else
    echo "<result>Not Installed</result>"
    exit 0
fi

# Try to get the information from falconctl
csVersion=$($falconctlPath stats | grep version: | awk '{print $2}')

# If that didn't get it, try the old way
if [[ "$csVersion" == "" ]]; then
    csVersion=$(sysctl cs | grep cs.version | awk '{print $2}')
fi

# Report what we found, or that we don't know
echo "<result>${csVersion:-Unknown}</result>"

try like this it may help to find a better result.

#!/bin/bash
# Supports bith CS-V5.X below and CS-v6.X above .
# Find falconctl in /Library or /Applications/Falcon.app, or report if it's not there
if [ -e /Library/CS/falconctl ]; then
    falconctlPath="/Library/CS/falconctl"
elif [ -e /Applications/Falcon.app/Contents/Resources/falconctl ]; then
    falconctlPath="/Applications/Falcon.app/Contents/Resources/falconctl"
else
    echo "<result>Not Installed</result>"
    exit 0
fi

# Try to get the information from falconctl
csVersion=$($falconctlPath stats | grep version: | awk '{print $2}')

# If that didn't get it, try the old way
if [[ "$csVersion" == "" ]]; then
    csVersion=$(sysctl cs | grep cs.version | awk '{print $2}')
fi

# Report what we found, or that we don't know
echo "<result>${csVersion:-Unknown}</result>"
