Over the past couple weeks I have had a growing appreciation for the hard work that Harlan Carvey has put into his Windows Registry parsing tool RegRipper. Although tools such as MiTeCís RFV are still necessary when reviewing Windows Registry Hives, RegRipper provides an easy means to gather data into a text document for exporting into case notes and reports.
What really makes RegRipper worth while is that Harlan has gone out of his way to create a tool that is easily extensible. RegRipper pulls data out of Windows Registry Hives through the use of plugins. Although he has created many plugins that are already included in RegRipper there are always going to be something else that would be useful to pull and document.
A good example is a recent case I was working on. I needed to know how big a Windows Event Log was set to grow. Through a little research I discovered the very useful Windows article, Eventlog Key, covering the subject. Using the information in this article I was able to pull out the information using RFV. Of course, I had already run RegRipper and determined that this information had not been pulled by an existing plugin. I started thinking that this information would be useful in the future but I didnít have time to write a plugin so I just exported the data by hand and drove on. READ MORE
