Sample text

The methods to approach computer systems will vary in degree based upon the needs of the investigation, the skill of the investigator, and the configuration of the systems encountered. No approach will be able to collect all data without loss or modification of some data. The forensic imaging of a write protected hard drive will allow for the collection of the entire hard drive data, but not of RAM that existed before the system was shut down. The collection of volatile data also does not allow for the collection of all pristine data, as merely touching the computer (or not touching the computer) will create data and cause data to be lost through normal operating processes.

Given the nature of a virtual machine containing all its data internally, it is conceivable that all evidence needed for the investigation could be contained solely within the virtual machine and not exist on the host system. This evidence could consist of Internet history, running processes, or email. The collection of a running virtual machine from a running suspect computer increases the risks of system crashes, lost data, and altered data. However, this is expected and unavoidable and the investigator must make a decision based on the facts of that particular situation.
