Mandiant introduces a Python API to create IOCs

Indicators of compromise (IOCs) are Mandiant’s name for the state of objects (files, registry, log entries, etc) that could indicate a compromise. They are definition based.

I have not covered Mandiant’s Redline previously, but it is used to collect a bunch of data about a workstation, and then used to analyze this data for IOCs. This means that expanding IOC definitions has a lot of value!

It looks like Mandiant has released a Python API that allows people to MUCH more easily construct IOC definitions.

Check it out at their github. IOC Editor may also be of value.

Also remember how easy it is to setup a great development environment on Windows for free with PyTools for Visual Studio.
