  • plaso

    Super timeline all the things

    Project mention: Solving a child porn case (student environment) | | 2021-10-23

    My advice would be to go through a timeline to assert the activity before and after these files "appeared" . This can be done in log2timeline / plaso , this script can parse the raw image (or e01 or whatever you have) and build a timeline , parse it and sort it. Also look for lnk files and shellbags to see if the files were opened , used etc.
