For those that didn’t see, last week Eric Zimmerman, the creator of a number of fine forensics tools, released a new tool called KAPE, which is the Kroll Artifact Parser and Extractor. This tool provides examiners the ability to quickly collect files and folders into a storage location (folder/vhd/vhdx), and then parse them with various utilities.
Over the weekend I was looking at the “Reading Locations” subkey in the NTUSER.dat and found something interesting. I haven’t got a complete understanding yet, so I’ve labelled this as Part 1, but I have to figure some more stuff out for there to be a part 2.
Just a quick post on the Windows Recycle Bin whilst it’s fresh in my mind (also because I posted some findings on Twitter, and will definitely lose them if I want to refer back another time). I figure since I did the testing I should get it down somewhere. Already spent the time to do it so may as well get it down on paper so I don’t have to redo it again another time 🙂
This time, we’re cutting and pasting across volumes. I decided to take a slightly different route than last week and just created two VHDs to cut and paste between. (I have no idea why I didn’t think of that last week, do all of the copying and pasting in one go and then be done with it. If there’s a hard way to do something, I will find it 🙂 ).
It’s not uncommon to be asked whether a user had a login password or to need it to login to a virtualised copy of a suspects computer. In the case of the later, you can usually just clear the password and proceed, but sometimes knowing the password may be important.
I played with a few tools that I had on hand to get a local user’s NTLM hash during Dave and Matt’s DFIR CTF at DEF CON and documented my findings (and finally got around to finishing this up)
I have recently started looking at the wealth of data that can be obtained from file system iPhone extractions; a lot of which has already been explored by Sarah Edwards in her iOS of Sauron presentation, and also recently in her post on the KnowledgeC database.
Based on that I decided to take a look at the powerlog PLSQL SQLite databases on a jailbroken iPhone running iOS 10.2. I would have to double check, but I don’t think this file will get exported from a standard backup, and as a result you’ll have to jail break the device to get at this file.Read More »
