• TrueCrypt, firefire memdu

    Hi all,

    My friend recently wrote quite an interesting article on how they went about solving a PlaidCTF challenge. They were given a memory dump taken from a firewire port, and needed to reverse engineer data out of TrueCrypt without knowing the password.

    The article can be read here: http://mweissbacher.com/blog/2011/05/17/plaidctf-writeup-fun-with-firewire/

    Anyone else ha fun with firewire?

    I use TrueCrypt for my encrypted filesystem. It allows deniability so I have always thought it was great--now I'm worried.

    Kind regards,

    ... Seeing it loud and clear here in fatcatsland.... inexplicable, but at least it's working.
