Description Christopher Meng 2014-08-12 06:28:13 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: YARA is a tool aimed at (but not limited to) helping malware researchers to identify and classify malware samples. With YARA you can create descriptions of malware families (or whatever you want to describe) based on textual or binary patterns. Each description, a.k.a rule, consists of a set of strings and a boolean expression which determine its logic.

the foles for the yara package doesn't seem to be available for download. 
Please could you re-upload - on perhaps?

Thank you
Michal Ambroz

Comment 2 Michal Ambroz 2015-08-17 16:31:21 UTC
Probably migrate to current Github version ?

Comment 3 Michal Ambroz 2016-06-08 22:50:06 UTC
as there is no update from Christopher for nearly 2 years I would like to join in this request as a second requestor, possibly co-maintaining with Christopher.

I have switched to the current up-stream repository ( repackaged the current stable release (3.4.0).

SPEC and SRPM can be found here:

dnf install yara

Comment 6 Antonio T. (sagitter) 2016-08-01 12:12:10 UTC

Christopher is idle since many time.
I think you can replace this review request with a newer one with you as reporter.

Comment 7 Michal Ambroz 2016-08-01 18:54:10 UTC
Upon suggestion from Antonio Trande I am closing this review request as there is no update from Christopher Meng for quite some time and files for review are not available to download anymore.

I have created new review request for yara package - #1362265

Best regards
Michal Ambroz
