Daily Blog #286: Saturday Reading 4/5/14

Saturday Reading by David Cowen - Hacking Exposed Computer Forensics Blog

Hello Reader,
                 It's Saturday! After another long week on the DFIR road I hope your canceled flights get you home on time and with good in flight wifi. It's time for more links to make you think with in this week's Saturday Reading.

1. We had a fun forensic lunch this week! This week we had:
Dave Hull from Microsoft, you can follow Dave on Twitter @davehull , his blog http://trustedsignal.blogspot.com/ and on github https://github.com/davehull.
You should come to the SANS DFIR Summit and see him there as well!

Vico Marizale or Joe Sylve from 504ensics came back for their 3rd week of commitment! @vicomarziale and @jsylve. You should get involved with their new registry timestamp project by emailing them info@504labs.com to get their tool and start helping to discover unknown registry timestamps!

If you are not going to ADUC or CEIC you should also consider going to B-Sides NOLA, learn more about it here:
