    What's wrong? Forensics is one of the fields in security.

    I thought everyone here had to do forensics to some degree, though I am
    sure some of us more than others. While not everyone here has to
    prepare forensic data for court, I know for a fact several of us do.
    Usually if we do our job properly however court can be avoided.

    Evidence has to always be collected in such a way to leave the original
    evidence in tact with no chance of modification. But yes there are
    several folks here who do forensics and a couple other sharp cookies who
    could but have gone to the dark side. Forensics is definitely a portion
    of security, but those who do forensics, often question motives of those
    who seek us out.

    Why was 'urgent' necessary in your subject line ? It implies a quick
    response would be appreciated does it not ? Usually it is because the poster
    needs help quickly with a *serious* computer problem.

    As has been mentioned already, use Google and do some work yourself instead
    of trying to be cute.

    Regards,

    Pete.

    Well personally, i wouldn't try to assume the meaning or implied meaning of
    what someone says untill you have actually asked them. The research i am
    doing involves a methodology whereby i *need* to *ask* other ppl within this
    profession, due to time constraints it is actually quite urgent that this
    gets done pretty quickly. Surely this shows how not all urgent requests
    have a sinister basis....
