Yara is a really useful tool for matching patterns in files and data developed by the Virustotal team. It has applications across many fields of information security and a vibrant online community. Along with Snort it’s a key language for threat research and defense operations, and has interesting application for red, purple, and rainbow teams too…

* What’s Yara , what’s it for?

* Where can I get some free rules ?

* What cool tricks can you do with Yara + rules ?
