(Am)Cache rules everything around me

  • Webcast Aired Friday, 03 Jun 2016 1:00PM EST (03 Jun 2016 17:00 UTC)
  • Speaker: Eric Zimmerman

Amcache is a valuable artifact for forensic examiners as it contains a wealth of information related to evidence of execution of programs including installed applications and other executables which have been run on a computer, the SHA-1 value of the program, and several time stamps of interest including last modified time as well as the first time a program was run. By understanding the data available in the Amcache hive, examiners will be able to build better timelines, create whitelists and blacklists of programs to exclude or look for on other systems, and quickly find outliers in the vast amount of data contained in Amcache hives. People attending this session will come away with an understanding of how data is structured and interrelated in the different parts of an Amcache hive and be provided free, open source tools that can process these hives quickly and efficiently.
