Crimes and P2P Networks

By on Jan 10, 2007 in Featured, Internet, Security | 0 comments

P2P networks are intended to connect hosts that are connected to the Internet in order to interchange files directly, this method, technically, has a nice and smart idea behind it, but it takes the control away for authorities and digital content owners. One of the most discussed cases of P2P crimes is violation of intellectual properties rights, books, multimedia and software are subjects of this type of crimes. With a P2P network, one can search and find other peers that have or pretend having files that he or she needs. Searching the net reveals that there are many cases versus P2P companies and developers, such as GRANT T. STANLEY [CyberCrime.gov, 2006]. Distributing malware, viruses, worms and exploits are other important issues which its complexity is completely different from intellectual property issues. Computer literates know that downloading files might contain malwares that...

Email information leakage investigation

Precautionary actions: In order to prevent more information leakage, all incoming e-mails are forwarded to a temporary alias e-mail address. Afterward, one of the IT personnel is assigned to feed the mailbox with fake and unreal information that look real by which we can keep the criminal watching the mailbox. Digital evidence collection/reduction and collection: In this phase, all SMTP connections for mail relay, POP, IMAP and web connections that try to access this specific mail box should be recorded and logged, since we can not distinguish between different mailboxes while TCP connections are being intercepted, we need to recover contents of all TCP packets coming and leaving the mail server, after information recovery, we need to filter unwanted data and keep the necessary data. In order to intercept the packets we can use Ethereal in bottleneck of the network or on the mail...

Compression tools used in forensics

The size of information collected from disk might be big enough to not fit within our media during seizure of information. Therefore we need to compress the information in the way that the decompressed information would be identical to the original. A variety of compression algorithms implemented each of which has its own cons and pros, to answer the question, I’d like to categorize compression methods two lossless and lossy methods. With lossless methods the exact copy of the information can be retrieved from the compresses file. Software such as WinZip, PKZIP, gzip, bzip2, ARC, RAR, WinRAR and many others are of such programs. Lossy methods are usually used to preserve network or storage resources. There are many types of information that can be compressed in this way, for instance, images are always stored in a compressed format, Videos, Audios and streamed information like VoIP...

JAVA: Using JPanel as Application Main Panel

Most of the programmers like to have the most beautiful menu bars and components in their applications, but in Java programming language, because of limited access to system level resources; it is a little bit difficult.Today I am going to explain how to make an attractive application frame, what I am going to say here is just the basics and a simple application that you can download and run it as a NetBeas Project.Since I usually use NetBeans IDE, this entire document is based on that IDE, so if you want to match this information with your programming environment you might check documents of your product.Normally when you are going to build a menu driven application in java, you make a Frame then start adding new components, this shows the normal borde for your application, but if you need more your should use JPanel instead of JFrame, working with JPanel need more manual codes but...
