Astute Yara

Becoming the Yara Hunter

YARA is a free and open source pattern matching tool for hunting threats, malware, or other specific patterns in files. It is used by a large majority of security vendors and is baked into many security products. 


This course takes the beginner from writing their first YARA rule to hunting and categorizing target malware families. We'll discuss what makes a weak signature vs what makes a great signature that can find new threat variants even before your security products do.
We'll also show where you can already start using YARA rules, including open source and commercial products that have YARA builtin. If you're new to YARA and want to step up your threat hunting this course is for you!
