How well will openvas work to find malware and will yara rules work?

There is no integration at the moment, but the OSP Concept will give you everything to write your own integration :wink: If you do so, please let us know …

Just want to mention that Malware detection is not really the scope of a Vulnerability Scanner like GVM because a Malware is in itself not directly a vulnerability but only using existing vulnerabilities to infect systems and spread across the affected network.

There is a “Malware” family in GVM though which even gets some additional coverage of new Malware from time to time.
