Methodology is sound but tools and information is out-dated.,
This review is from: Malware Forensics: Investigating and Analyzing Malicious Code (Paperback)I have had this book for about 2 years now. It is getting a bit out of date. The methodologies provided are sound but the areas covered are pretty basic and the tools are far from the best available. Much of the information is available online for free. I would recommend it to anyone who is just getting into the field of computer forensics but it will not help a professional in this field.
For a positive this book does cover a lot more than traditional windows hard disk forensics. It has methodologies for Windows and Linux Based incident response, Live Analysis, Memory analysis and hard disk analysis.
This should really be worthy of 3.5 stars but as its not worth 4 I'm sticking with 3.
