Daily Blog #314: Saturday Reading 5/3/14

Hello Reader,
          It's very late in Iceland but with only a few weeks left in the daily blogging I can't stop now! It's Saturday so get ready for more links to make you think on this weeks Saturday Reading!

1. The Forensic Lunch this week went a bit off the norm and we had an open discussion time. Lee Whitfield, @lee_whitfield and Suzanne Widup, Suzanne Widup, joined us and your comments in an open discussion. We discussed an article linked by Brian Moran located here: http://eandt.theiet.org/news/2014/apr/hackers-heartbleed.cfm all about how some malware researchers are accessing bad guy forums using Heartbleed. You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=4iCYNiGWFDE

2. Lee Whitfield has a new post up talking about the value of SMART data from your disk drives in your analysis, read it here: https://forensic4cast.com/2014/05/be-smart/

3. I have to say I hope that the beyond the run key series never ends. Adam is back this time with another post showing how to turn the execution of Internet Explorer into a persistence mechanism. http://www.hexacorn.com/blog/2014/04/27/beyond-good-ol-run-key-part-11/

That's all I have for this week, what did I miss? Post it in the comments below!
