An Introduction to the Digital Forensics Field in Law Enforcement

Tuesday, August 18, 2015 (08:00:48)
Today law enforcement provides an enormous opportunity for digital forensics professionals to have a real impact on both the outcome of criminal cases and the development of the field. A good forensics examiner, for instance, knows how to chain evidence together and reliably present it in a court of law. This person plays a unique role within law enforcement as both a detective and technologist, understanding how to translate highly technical information to tell the story of the data to all parties involved—from the investigators to the judge to the jury.

Standard Processes in Windows 10

Thursday, August 06, 2015 (10:33:09)
On the 29th of June, Microsoft announced the release of Windows 10, so it is time to have a deeper look at this new Operating System from the perspective of an Incident Responder. To make it easier for you to read the screenshots, I have chosen USERNAME and HOSTNAME as names for themselves.

The tool Process Hacker (http://processhacker.sourceforge.net) still functions in Windows 10 and shows well-known process names, parent-child relationships and familiar faces from former Windows Operating Systems. But the familiarity is short-lived. Some players are new and some players have changed their position on the playground.

System still has the PID 4 and is the parent of the Windows Session Manager. I will also mention that it still resides at %systemroot%\system32\. All services are started from executable files from their former locations, if not mentioned otherwise in this article.

The battery status API is currently supported in the Firefox, Opera and Chrome browsers, and was introduced by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C, the organisation that oversees the development of the web’s standards) in 2012, with the aim of helping websites conserve users’ energy. Ideally, a website or web-app can notice when the visitor has little battery power left, and switch to a low-power mode by disabling extraneous features to eke out the most usage...
