And another one: Maktub Locker....

There is always speculation about the skill required and resources required to do this sort of malware. this isn't like Stuxnet where a massive amount of extra knowledge was needed such as Siemens SCADA stuff, and some pretty decent rootkit type knowledge. Also the targeting requires quite a bit of ...

Decrypt Cryptolocker

Home basic came on real cheap netbooks, such as Acer one's and EeePC's or whatever they were. It was a really crap version of Windows if you were at all used to enterprise/pro/ultimate versions.

Data Recovery Online Estimator Tool

Hi Jared, a couple of comments. Obviously mine will be flash-centric :) 1) the choice between monolith and PCB - many customers haven't opened the device and wouldn't even think to do so, or would be afraid to, so IMHO a new option "I don't know" is needed. Many people don't know what mono...

pretty impressive work maximus, I have 2 drives here which I plan to test out. I am not a conventional HDD guy so the feedback from someones perspective of just stumbling on the tool that might be attempting DIY may be useful. what happens when someone tries to use it on an SSD? I see it is obviousl...

Forensics Section

Only this week on one of the podcasts I mentioned they talked about a guy that bought an IP camera on ebay - pre-loaded with malware. I myself was buying lots of flash drives on ebay, I think I even posted on HDDGuru about when at least 3 had malware on them. I suspect they had been sitting around s...

Nowadays keeping the data safe isn't something average joe will be able to do. agree, but I will go a step further: the average joe knows so little about computers that they cant even backup effectively anymore. average house: * 1 - 4 iphones, an ipad or 2 ... do they even REALLY know what iCloud i...

Forensics Section

I agree, I stay current with as much InfoSec as I can, and try to with forensic info as well, though there isn't as much content produced for forensics as there is InfoSec. I believe with all the ransomware, and the way it is crossing over to the DR field with filesystems being messed with and parti...

That would be a nice feature and an obvious oversight if it didn't exist. imagine a 4TB drive imaged with ddrescue and needing only a few MB from the hardware imager.. would cut down job times enormously, and also much less work the disk has to do for more chance of fail.
