HBGary Unveils Responder™ Community Edition

HBGary, Inc., has introduced Responder™ Community Edition, a new, free version of its flagship Responder™ product for physical memory analysis. Limited copies of this new free tool are available on CD at HBGary booth #201 at the Computer and Enterprise Investigations Conference (CEIC) 2011. HBGary is a Platinum sponsor for the event…Critical digital evidence of today’s malware and other advanced targeted attacks can be found in physical memory: user names and passwords, encryption keys, instant messenger chat sessions, unencrypted data, open documents and emails, encryption keys, hidden code like rootkits, and registry information. All this data can help provide contextual threat intelligence about a criminal’s activity on the computer.

“When we first introduced Responder™ several years ago, memory forensics tools were primarily used by early adopters such as government and law enforcement agencies. Today most industries and corporations, large and small, want the same in-depth, threat intelligence to protect their organizations. Built on the same comprehensive and complete live Windows® memory investigation platform as our other two Responder™ products, Responder™ Pro and Responder™ Field Edition, Responder™ Community Edition offers a new, cost-effective way to gather this critical intelligence found only in computer memory,” said Greg Hoglund, CEO of HBGary, Inc.

About Responder™ Community Edition
Like its sister products, Responder™ Community Edition provides the most thorough and comprehensive memory analysis capability in the industry. Responder™ Community Edition virtually rebuilds all the underlying data structures up to 6 gigabytes of RAM. This includes all physical to virtual address mappings, recreates the object manager, exposes all objects, and enables investigators to perform a complete and comprehensive computer investigation.

About the Responder™ Windows® Memory Investigation Platform
The HBGary Responder™ platform is designed to perform a comprehensive and complete live Windows memory investigation. Responder allows analysts and investigators to easily preserve the entire contents of live memory and the Pagefile on Windows operating systems in a forensically sound manner. Responder then analyzes and diagnoses the memory image to reveal operating system, user, and application information critical to computer investigations. Harvested information includes both kernel and user-mode objects, structures, binaries, and other useful artifacts. When malicious or suspect applications, drivers, and other executables are found Responder can seamlessly extract the file(s) from the memory image retaining portable executable (PE) structure so they can be further diagnosed, executed, and monitored in their unpacked state.

This methodology allows Responder to defeat many packers and other obfuscation techniques used by malware writers.
