取证须让证物说话,莫妄以自我心证来给案情下定论.切忌画靶射箭,为找而找. 取证的根基仰赖经验与判断,在IT各领域的经验愈丰富,愈能看出端倪. 取证须善用工具,但不过度依赖工具.工具只能帮你缩小可能范围,但无法告诉你答案,仍需靠人进行分析判断.



My friend May she found a strange file called "bkp.old" as below in the evidence files. She decided to use forensic tools to take a look at it and figure it out what's going on.


FTK said that it's an unknown file. But May was not satistify with this answer.


May used EnCase to conduct a file signature analysis on this evidence. Guess what? The signature analysis result was "Match". The file type was "Old Configuration Settings (ASCII)". May refused to believe it. That's too ridiculous!!!


May took a look at it's file header and compared with "File Type Signature Search.txt" . That's it. It's a Symantec Ghost Image file.


The suspect changed its ext name and bkp.gho became bkp.old. But to May's surprise forensic tools could not recognize this file correctly~ I taught May how to verify the file signature of a file. The verify result is as below.


Also I taught May how to mount a gho file and see what's inside this gho file. She did find some important files in this gho file and she exported those files to take a further examination.
