Some sites of note

I've been perusing a couple of new sites that I've run across over the past couple of weeks and wanted to pass them on to others, and include some of my thoughts/experiences with the sites...

MultiMediaForensics - At first, this looks like another forum site, similar to ForensicFocus. One of the aspects of this site, however, is that the author maintains the shownotes for the CyberSpeak podcast. One of the most important things about this site is that it provides a forum for members of the computer forensics community to come together. In my experience, this is one of the things missing from the community...a "community". While ForensicFocus is UK-based, MultiMediaForensics appears to be more US-based, and that may have an effect on its popularity here in the US. If you follow the CyberSpeak podcast, or are just interested in computer forensics, make a point of contributing (post, write an article, provide a link, ask a question, etc.) to this site.

Hype-Free - While not specifically related to security or forensics, this site does have some interesting commentary. The author says in the "About" section that the goal of the blog is to "demystify security", so keep your eye out for some good stuff coming down the road.

MS AntiMalware Blog - Don't go to this site expecting to see MS's version of Symantec or some other A/V vendor that posts writeups on malware. However, you may find some interesting white papers and posts that will help you understand issues surrounding malware a bit better. For example, the ISC recently mentioned some highlights from one such white paper.

Thank you for the great review. I hope that I can continue writing useful posts.

If you or any of your readers have any topic suggestions, make a comment at my blog and if it's something I know enough about, I'll write a post about it.

The next forensics-related topic I plan address is making memory dumps in Windows with the Kernel Debugger.

cdman83,

I'm looking forward to that next subject... ;-)
