Briefly: Volatility News (2/14)

I'm a little behind in my blogging, but I wanted to post about a few items that people might not have noticed. So here it is just in time for Valentines Day.

Volatility SQL Plugins

I modified the Volatility SQL output plugins (download link) slightly. I changed the schema in the plugin:


Table Name: dlls

pname Process name (changed)
pid Process ID
cmdline Command Line text
base Base Address
size Size
path Path of DLL
memimage Memory image information was extracted from

I also removed the Volatility files ( and since there were two patches that address the items I changed in those files. So now all you have to do is download Volatility from the SVN and unzip the plugins like before.

For the more adventurous, the SQL rendering plugins have been incorporated into the experimental branch of Volatility (thank you Scudette!). You can download all branches with the following command:

svn checkout Vol_All

For the experimental branch (located in the experimental folder) you must have Python 2.6 installed.

Volatility User Manual

There is a new Volatility User Manual contributed to the VDP by Mark Morgan. It is a compilation of past VDP articles and blogposts and covers all public plugins to date. Shouts to Mark!

EnCase Enscripts + Volatility = Takahiro Haruyama's Memory Forensics Toolkit

Takahiro Haruyama has released a new version of his Memory Forensics Toolkit. I had played around with his previous version. Now there is no excuse for the EnCase reliant not to get in on memory forensics ;-) Shouts to Takahiro for making it easier for these users!
