YARA version 4.0.0 was released.

One of its new features that caught my eye, is base64 strings.

This is the example rule for the base64 modifier from YARA's documentation:

rule Base64Example1
        $a = "This program cannot" base64


This rule will search for ASCII strings that are possible BASE64-encodings of ASCII string "This program cannot".
