mac-robber - collects data about allocated files in mounted filesystems
mac-robber [OPTION] mac-robber <DIRECTORY>
mac-robber is a digital investigation tool (digital forensics) that collects metadata from allocated files in a mounted filesystem. This is useful during incident response when analyzing a live system or when analyzing a dead system in a lab. The data can be used by the mactime tool in The Sleuth Kit (TSK or SleuthKit only) to make a timeline of file activity. The mac-robber tool is based on the grave-robber tool from TCT (The Coroners Toolkit). mac-robber requires that the filesystem be mounted by the operating system, unlike the tools in The Sleuth Kit that process the filesystem themselves. Therefore, mac-robber will not collect data from deleted files or files that have been hidden by rootkits. mac-robber will also modify the Access times on directories that are mounted with write permissions. When in forensics analysis you should mount the target partition as read- only. mac-robber is useful when dealing with a filesystem that is not supported by The Sleuth Kit or other filesystem analysis tools. You can run mac-robber on an obscure, suspect UNIX filesystem that has been mounted read-only on a trusted system.
-h Print help. -V Show the version.
To see metadata from all files in a directory (recursively): $ mac-robber /home/user/directory To make a timeline using mactime command from The Sleuth Kit (TSK) and setting Brazilian timezone: $ mac-robber /home/user/directory | mactime -z BRT An alternative is write the results into a file and read it using mactime: $ mac-robber /home/user/directory > /tmp/files.mr $ mactime -b /tmp/files.mr -z BRT
