In late 2020, FireEye announced that threat actors had gained unauthorized access to the company's red teaming tools. As part of the announcement, FireEye released multiple YARA rules designed to help other organizations detect the presence of those tools in their networks. In this What's New, our analysts will demonstrate automating threat hunting at scale by using Synapse to centrally create, test, manage and deploy YARA rulez!
