Very cool of Kaspersky open-sourcing this. Many more details about KLara can be found on SecureList.

"Detecting cyberthreats requires tools and systems that can hunt effectively for malware - particularly when tracking advanced targeted threat campaigns through months or even years of activity," said Dan Demeter, security researcher at Kaspersky Lab and one the creators of KLara. "We created KLara to help us hunt threats better and faster" and are now sharing it with the security community, he said.
