Kaspersky Lab is now offering its homegrown threat-hunting application KLara as an open-source tool, the company said today.
KLara is a YARA rules-based malware scanner that runs multiple YARA identifier rules across multiple databases simultaneously as a way to speed up the process of malware identification. Kaspersky Lab said it created the tool as a distributed system for YARA searches that includes researchers' own malware collections as well as others.
"Detecting cyberthreats requires tools and systems that can hunt effectively for malware – particularly when tracking advanced targeted threat campaigns through months or even years of activity," said Dan Demeter, security researcher at Kaspersky Lab and one the creators of KLara. "We created KLara to help us hunt threats better and faster" and are now sharing it with the security community, he said.
The open source tool is available via GitHub.
