Lab Number and Title: Lab4 – Hard Drive Image Analysis
Summary of Findings:
The source code was exposed by means of criminal activity that Denny Vette was involved in through 1/2/02. There were many items found through the analysis of the hard drive that indicate hacking, steganographic, and cryptographic activities.
Main evidence recovered was a deleted item from the sent folder of Microsoft Outlook Express. This sent email included an attachment which is suspected of being a steganographic image (a file hidden within a .jpg photo file). Denny Vette sent the e-mail email@example.com and the body of the e-mail stated “Big, here’s the picture that I promised you. As agreed, you’ll pay me $100k now and the rest later.” It is believed that the photo attachment contains a file with the source code in it.
