I would like to know some basic heuristic detection methods in detail because when I do research there is only a general overview of heuristics and not what methods are used to achieve it. I would appreciate some information that has an example (code, or explanation) of how the method works.

  • Have you tried YARA? – mootmoot Jun 14 '17 at 13:03
  • @mootmoot Yes i have but i would class yara as more of a string signature method then heuristic. Do you agree? – Nat Jun 14 '17 at 13:04
  • YARA heuristic rules can be extended to use complicate stuff, e.g. regex, or even fuzzy hash. The caveats of YARA : if the function is not there, you need to write a wrapper for it ;-) – mootmoot Jun 14 '17 at 13:08
  • @mootmoot Thanks i will look into that do you know any articles on it. Also do you know anyother methods? – Nat Jun 14 '17 at 13:14
  • Honestly, when you create a computer conditions code, most of them are heuristic. – mootmoot Jun 14 '17 at 13:16
