Why this tool?
Rastrea2r is a threat hunting utility for indicators of compromise (IOC). It is named after the Spanish word rastreador, which means hunter. This multi-platform open source tool helps incident responders and SOC analysts to triage suspected systems. The hunt for IOCs can be achieved in just a matter of a few minutes.
How it works
Rastrea2r will collect and parse artifacts from remote systems. This includes memory dumps and command output. All data is saved on a centralized share, where it can be picked up for further analysis. With the usage of a client/server API, the rastrea2r tool can hunt for detail on disk and memory. In this case, it uses YARA rules to match any data of interest. Rastrea2r can also be integrated with external tools like McAfee ePO, allowing to find more details without requiring an additional agent on the client systems.
