The free community Hybrid Analysis portal is getting a technology infusion from CrowdStrike that will enable researchers to conduct more complex searches for malware analysis. CrowdStrike announced on Aug. 21 that it is bringing its Falcon MalQuery malware search engine technology to the Hybrid Analysis community. With MalQuery, the goal is to enable anyone using the community's Hybrid Analysis web portal to easily conduct complex searches using Yara (Yet another recursive acronym) rules and string searches. With Yara searches, researchers can look for and identify patterns that can help with malware analysis as well as attribution. Hybrid Analysis, is a free service and an online portal that provides automated malware analysis.
