Frankenstein Dell – Data Recovery and Forensics Box

I’m having a little fun rebuilding a old workstation from the office. It’s a SFF Dell GX520. The system sports a Hyperthreaded P4 (hot stuff…) 1GB RAM. So far I’ve loaded Ubuntu 10.10, upgraded the CD-ROM to a DVD-RAM and increased the HD to 160GB.

The Ubuntu Install has:

  • ClamAV
  • Foremost
  • TestDisk
  • I’ve already had an opportunity to put the box to use. I recovered data from a failed WD disc. I think I may get my hands on a virus infected HD next and try cleaning it up and/or run a forensics analysis to determine what viruses are installed.
