BASS (pronounced “bæs”) is a framework designed to automatically generate antivirus signatures from samples belonging to previously generated malware clusters. It is meant to reduce resource usage of ClamAV by producing more pattern-based signatures as opposed to hash-based signatures, and to alleviate the workload of analysts who write pattern-based signatures. The framework is easily scalable thanks to Docker.
Please note that this framework is still considered in the Alpha stage and as a result, it will have some rough edges. As this tool is open-source and actively maintained by us, we gladly welcome any feedback from the community on improving the functionality of BASS. You can find source code for BASS on our GitHub page.
