YARA another python module - part 002 .

This is another part of YARA python tutorial and the goal of this part is install the yara modules.
This is another python module about Yara named yara-python from VirusTotal.
The last tutorial use the yara python module.
The YARA modules provides extending features to allow us to define data structures and functions which can be used in your rules to express more complex conditions.
You can also write your own modules.
Some known modules used by YARA are:
  • PE
  • ELF
  • Cuckoo
  • Magic
  • Hash
  • Math
First you need to install or reinstall YARA to the last version:
>>> yara.__version__
'3.6.3'
The Cuckoo module enables you to create YARA rules based on behavioral information generated by a Cuckoo sandbox.

requests-2.13.0 sflock-0.2.16 sqlalchemy-1.0.8 tlslite-ng-0.6.0 unicorn-1.0.1 wakeonlan-0.2.2
Let's test this python module:
>>> import cuckoo
>>> from cuckoo import *
>>> dir(cuckoo)
['__builtins__', '__doc__', '__file__', '__name__', '__package__', '__path__', '__version__',
 'auxiliary', 'common', 'compat', 'core', 'machinery', 'misc', 'plugins', 'processing', 
'reporting', 'signatures', 'web']
Let's test some yara modules:
>>> import yara
>>> rule = yara.compile(source='import \"pe\"')
>>> rule = yara.compile(source='import \"elf\"')
>>> rule = yara.compile(source='import \"cuckoo\"')
>>> rule = yara.compile(source='import \"math\"')
I could not use the YARA modules: hash and magic.
I will solve this problem in the future.
You can also write your own modules ( see this webpage ).
