ITB DF/IR Tip Contest

Posted in Information with tags , , , , , on February 5, 2010 by cutaway

This has been a long time coming.  The winner of the first Into The Boxes DF/IR Tip Contest is John McCash with the one and only entry for this contest:

Windows ‘Default User’ Browser History may be left by anything that uses the WinInet APIs & runs as System, including wget.exe.

To clarify John points us to a post on Harlan’s blog: The Case of the “Default User” and Robert Hensing’s Blog post “Ever found malware hiding in the “Default User” profile on Windows? Ever wonder how it got there or why it was there?”

John wins a signed first edition of ITB.  If we had more staff this would have already been taken care of earlier last month.  However, we have leaned on John’s patience a little and we will be getting this out to him as soon as possible.

Now, stay tuned for more information about future ITB events.  We will be putting out the call for new articles very shortly and we hope that many of you will help us follow up with a second edition that matches the first.

Go forth and do good things,

Don C. Weber
