Monique is malware analysis tool that uses community provided content to determine if the strings in an executable are relevant to known malware, or relevant to 'goodware'. Essentially, it is a huge database of strings and metadata, gathered from security researchers the world over, hosted in Azure Table Storage, with a comparison engine.

To use Monique, register for an account. After approval, upload the output of the unix Strings command to the tool. Each string will be compared to the database of known good strings, and then the list of known malware strings. A report is generated, with a confidence store, and each of the lists of strings are provided for upload into your Intrusion Detection System.
