Daily Blog #466: Forensic Lunch Test Kitchen 8/28/18 - Creation of ObjectIDs

Creation of ObjectIDs by David Cowen - Hacking Exposed Computer Forensics Blog

Hello Reader,
            Another Test Kitchen has been recorded. If you want to catch these live I can't promise any particular broadcast time as I do these when I have time, but if you subscribe to my Youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/LearnForensics) you will get notifications whenever I do go live.

This Test Kitchen I did more experimentation with the creation of ObjectIDs when saving files from browsers to the Downloads directory with surprising results! It turns out that:

  • Saving a text file in Chrome to the downloads directory will create an ObjectID and a LNK file even without opening the file
  • Saving a text file in Firefox to the Downloads directory will create a LNK file but will not populate the ObjectID attribute. 
  • Saving executable files in both browsers will create Zone.Identifier alternative data streams as Phill Moore researched prior but will not create ObjectIDs or LNK files.
