This month, Volatility (the forensic kind) is starting the Month of Volatility Plugins (MoVP) where they are releasing new plug-ins every day in anticipation for the new release of Volatility 2.2. According to the blog, “Each plugin will describe a brand new capability exclusive to Volatility that deals with analyzing Windows or Linux RAM dumps for malware infections or compromises.”
Sound pretty neat. They’ve only released three new plugins, and already it looks pretty neat. Take a look!
