If you’re seeking adventure, you really couldn’t pick a much better place to start than Belize. Home to the Mayans, countless buccaneers, and lush jungle flora and fauna, Belize is an adventurer’s dream. And Belize is precisely where a recent Gillware Digital Forensics case began. (Unfortunately, though, none of us here at Gillware got to make a trip there for this laptop forensics case.)

One trend we’re seeing with ransomware more and more often is that the crypto virus will delete the backup and system restore files that are often critical to recovery. Deletion of restore points and backups makes recovering from ransomware significantly more difficult.

Digital forensics isn’t just about catching the bad guys (although the case studies on our blog might skew a bit in that direction). Digital forensics is about ferreting out the truth. The story digital evidence tells will always, as long as it’s followed properly, lead to the a more clear picture of the truth.

Chip-off forensic procedures carry with them a significant investment of time, energy, and special tools. While you’d be hard pressed to find someone who’s really chomping at the bit to do these things, Gillware Digital Forensics is a good place to start. You could say we have chip-off on our shoulders.

Virtual machine forensics often ends up providing us with a situation not unlike Russian nesting dolls, also known as Matryoshka dolls… or an onion (or a turducken). These cases have layers upon layers. We must image the individual hard disks, figure out the RAID jigsaw puzzle and piece the drives together, explore the full storage volume (and however many iSCSI targets they carved it into), and finally go through the virtual machines themselves. There are wheels within wheels in just about every digital forensics investigation to some degree. But nothing takes nesting quite so literally as virtual machine forensics.

Gillware Digital Forensics used mobile phone chip-off forensics to help a Wisconsin police department solve a domestic homicide.

Domestic violence costs thousands of lives each year, and leaves countless thousands more in shambles. For information about how to get involved and to help, contact the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence or your local law enforcement agency.
