Forensicscontest.com’s Puzzles

puzzlePra quem curte desafios de Forense (como eu), eis uma ótima fonte de diversão (e estudo).

Alguns mentores dos treinamentos de Forense de Rede do SANS resolveram criar um blog/site onde são publicados vários desafios de forense, o que eles chamam de puzzles. O primeiro desafio já foi encerrado, entretanto, o segundo acaba se ser lançado. Já enviei minhas respostas, em breve as publicarei aqui.

O desafio sempre envolve a análise de um arquivo PCAP (packet capture). A partir deste, arquivos contidos dentro dos pacotes capturados são utilizados para responder as questões formuladas pelos autores.

O vencedor do último desafio recebeu como prêmio um curso do SANS; neste último, a premiação será um Netbook. Participem!

Abaixo segue o texto do segundo puzzle, a data final para envio das respostas é 22/11/2009.

Puzzle #2: Ann Skips Bail

After being released on bail, Ann Dercover disappears! Fortunately, investigators were carefully monitoring her network activity before she skipped town.

“We believe Ann may have communicated with her secret lover, Mr. X, before she left,” says the police chief. “The packet capture may contain clues to her whereabouts.”

You are the forensic investigator. Your mission is to figure out what Ann emailed, where she went, and recover evidence including:

1. What is Ann’s email address?
2. What is Ann’s email password?
3. What is Ann’s secret lover’s email address?
4. What two items did Ann tell her secret lover to bring?
5. What is the NAME of the attachment Ann sent to her secret lover?
6. What is the MD5sum of the attachment Ann sent to her secret lover?
7. In what CITY and COUNTRY is their rendez-vous point?
8. What is the MD5sum of the image embedded in the document?

Please use the Official Submission form to submit your answers. Prize TBD.

Here is your evidence file:

MD5 (evidence02.pcap) = cfac149a49175ac8e89d5b5b5d69bad3

The MOST ELEGANT solution wins. In the event of a tie, the entry submitted first will receive the prize. Scripting is always encouraged. We love to see well-written, easy-to-use tools which automate even small sections of the evidence recovery. You are welcome to build upon the work of others, as long as their work has been released under a GPL license. (If it has been released under another free-software license, email us to confirm eligibility.) All responses should be submitted as plain text. Microsoft Word documents, PDFs, etc will NOT be reviewed.

Exceptional solutions may be incorporated into the SANS Network Forensics Toolkit. Authors agree that their code submissions will be freely published under the GPL license, in order to further the state of network forensics knowledge. Exceptional submissions may also be used as examples and tools in the Network Forensics class. All authors will receive full credit for their work.

Deadline is 11/15/09. Here’s the Official Submission form. Good luck!!
