Question description

A drive you're investigating contains several several password-protected files and other files with headers that don't match the extension. Write your paper describing the procedures you need to follow to retrieve the evidence. Identify the mismatched file headers to extensions and discuss techniques you can apply to recover passwords from the protected files.

Computer Forensics Report

  • Your Paper should be an MS Word document, at least six pages in length.
  • Your forensics report should be about a fictitious company going through any of the scenarios learned in this class.
  • Use hypothetical questions to guide and support your opinion. Hypothetical questions are based on factual evidence and should include only those facts supporting your opinion or conclusion. Remember that hypothetical questions can be abused and made so complex that the finder of fact (expert) might not be able to evaluate the answer.
  • Your report should include:

a. Abstract
b. Table of contents
c. Body of report
d. Conclusion
e. Glossary
f. Acknowledgments
g. Appendixes

  • When writing a report you should consider:

a. Communicative quality
b. Ideas and organization
c. Grammar and vocabulary
d. Punctuation and spelling

  • Your report organization is very important. You should lay out ideas in a logical order and build arguments piece by piece, grouping related ideas and sentences into paragraphs and paragraphs into sections.

FORENSIC FILE INVESTIGATION
Abstract
Digital evidence is not a new term to the forensic department as it has been used time and
again to catch criminals, avert criminal activities and to also find out information that may help
safeguard both the nation and companies. The ABC Accounting Firm issue is therefore one of
the many it has handled and also one among many cases where digital evidence has posed a
problem. However, digital evidence is handled just like any other crime scene evidence and
therefore precautions are taken and certain specified procedures followed. Where data is
encoded, and or files are password protected or their file extensions unspecified or mismatched
like in the ABC scenario, then measures have to be taken. This is in order to ensure that the data
that s retrieved from this files is not interfered with and that it remains as the original.
