Finding Metasploit’s Meterpreter Traces With Memory Forensics

Tuesday, April 03, 2018 (08:50:47)
by Oleg Skulkin & Igor Mikhaylov

Metasploit Framework is not only very popular among pentesters, but is also quite often used by real adversaries. So why is memory forensics important here? Because Meterpreter, for example – an advanced, dynamically extensible Metasploit payload – resides entirely in the memory and writes nothing to the victim’s drive. In this article we will show you how to use the Volatility Framework to find Metasploit traces with memory forensics.

As we are analyzing a memory image, first of all we should gather information about the operating system to choose the right Volatility profile. If you ask us, the best practice here is to document the OS version during memory imaging process, as Volatility does not always detect it correctly. Anyway, if you get the memory image from the third party and the OS version is unknown, use the imageinfo plugin.

Jailbreaking iOS 11 And All Versions Of iOS 10

Friday, March 30, 2018 (15:08:07)
by Oleg Afonin, Mobile Product Specialist at ElcomSoft

Jailbreaking iOS is becoming increasingly difficult, especially considering the amounts of money Apple and independent bug hunters are paying for discovered vulnerabilities that could lead to a working exploit. Late last year, a bug hunter at Google’s Project Zero discovered one such vulnerability and developed and published an exploit that gave birth to a plethora of jailbreak tools for all versions of iOS 10 as well as iOS 11.0 through 11.1.2. The newly emerged jailbreaks are all exploiting the same vulnerability. Moreover, they are all using the same off-the-shelf exploit to jailbreak the device. However, there are major differences between the newly emerged jailbreaks that are worth explaining.

Video: Selective Deletion Of Non-Relevant Data

Tuesday, March 27, 2018 (09:39:11)
A short outline: after an introduction, we will have a look at selective deletion, a wider look at the evaluation, and a short conclusion. The motivation of this thesis was just to give you some background – I’m working at a police station as a computer forensic examiner – motivation for this thesis was that in law enforcement investigations, the search and seizure of digital evidence is a standard procedure, as we already have heard this morning, from Martin, and normally, a bitwise copy is created of the digital evidence.

Even Martin said this this morning – if the reason of the investigation is a non-cybercrime, is of non-cybercrime nature … I talked to the judge on Monday, who was responsible for all [the crimes] resulting in death, like murder and so on, and she said that in most cases, up to 90 per cent, the digital evidence is significant for the court.
