auto_rip, tr3secure_collection & DFS updates

Tuesday, August 19, 2014 Posted by Corey Harrell
This post is a quick update about a few things I've been working on over the years.

auto_rip updates

auto_rip is a wrapper script for Harlan Carvey's RegRipper and the script has a few updates. For those unfamiliar with the program please refer to my post Unleashing auto_rip. The script's home has always been on the RegRipper Google Code site but Google dropped support for adding new downloads. As a result, I thought it might be helpful to make newer versions available at different places since Google Code can no longer be used. One of the download locations where the script will be available is Google Drive. The link to the download folder is located here. In addition, along the right side of this blog is a link to the script's download location.

Harlan has put in a ton of work on Regripper and in the spring he released some updates to the program. Inside the downloadable archive he made available a file named updates.txt that outlines all of the work he did. New plug-ins, combined plug-ins, retiring plug-ins, etc.. Needless to say, an outstanding tool is now even better. After Harlan released the updates others asked if I was going to update auto_rip to match. Things have been busy so it took longer than I wanted. However, I finally updated auto_rip to account for the new RegRipper updates.

The latest auto_rip download works with the RegRipper download. All changes are noted at the top of the code. The changes include: adding plug-ins to parse, removing plug-ins no longer supported, adding the malware category (not all malware plug-ins run), and parsing the AMcache.hve registry hive with a new switch (Harlan, awesome job making this plug-in). I also renamed the executed to reflect it is 64bit and won't work on 32bit systems. Harlan, again thanks for all the work you put into maintaining the project.


Another script I released is the tr3secure_collection_script. This script automates the collection of volatile and non-volatile data from systems to support incident response activities. For more information about the script refer to my posts: Dual Purpose Volatile Data Collection Script and Tr3Secure Data Collection Script Reloaded. This script was another Google Code causality and had to find a new home (Google Drive again.) The link to the download folder is located here. In addition, along the right side of this blog is a link to the script's download location.

Besides getting a new home there is only one small change in this version. I dropped support for pv.exe since it is no longer downloadable. At some point in the future there may be another update on this front.

Digital Forensic Search Update

I have been keeping track of the various blogs and websites to add to the Digital Forensic Search over the past six months. I finally added the new sites to the index. To access the custom Google you can use this link directly. To see the full list of what is included in the index refer to the post: Introducing the Digital Forensics Search.
