Malware developers work just like legitimate software developers, aiming to reduce the time wasted on repetitive tasks wherever possible. That means they create and reuse code across their malware. This has a pay-off for malware hunters and threat intelligence researchers, we can learn how to create search rules to detect this kind of code reuse, Traditional Yara rules are written on strings, but if we implement code leveraging YARA code reuse rules in addition to the strings rule the rule will last decades.
