Free Tools: spotting APTs through Malware streams

Cyber security expert and founder of Yoroi has published a new tool that could be used to spot APTs (Advanced Persistent Threats) through Malware streams.

There are many ways to spot Advanced Persistent Threats, for example during a forensic analysis on “high rate incident” or having sandbox systems on critical infrastructures or again working as incident responder for big companies, working into a national CERT or building a simple tool performing analysis on Malware streams. Today I’d like to share a little bit of my personal experience on spotting APTs through Malware streams.

First of all, let me say that it is the easiest way to spot APT groups but it’s also one of the most inaccurate and it needs a lot of manual analysis before being able to confirm the sample belongs to a specific APT. Having said that, you might decide to get a Malware streaming service (or you might build one on your own, this was my case) and decide to perform dynamic or static analysis on it.
