The CISA Hunt and Incident Response Program (CHIRP) is a tool created to dynamically query Indicators of Compromise (IoCs) on hosts with a single package, outputting data in a JSON format for further analysis in a SIEM or other tool. CHIRP does not modify any system data.
We build and release CHIRP via
However, if you wish to run with Python3.6+, follow these instructions.
Python 3.6 or greater is required to run CHIRP with Python. If you need help installing Python in your environment, follow the instructions here
CHIRP must be run on a live machine, but it does not have to be network connected.
python3 -m pip install -e .
In our experience, yara-python comes with some other dependencies. You MAY have to install Visual Studio C++ 14.0 and the Windows 10 SDK, this can be retrieved with Visual Studio Community

Non-interactive mode may be used by issuing the "--non-interactive" flag at runtime. Using this flag enables process completion without input. In addition, a non-zero status of 1 will be emitted at runtime completion if IoC's were discovered.
