DEFT 7.2 was released a couple of weeks ago.  Some highlights of this release:

  • Option to use DEFT as a virtual appliance based on Vmware 5 with USB3 support
  • Kernel 3.0.0-26
  • Autopsy 3 beta 5 (using Wine – please note that you need minimum 1GB ram)
  • Log2tmeline 0.65
  • Guymager 0.6.12-1
  • Vmfs support
  • Some mirror fixes


Also, YUMI was released last week.  You will have to un-install any previous versions of DEFT through the YUMI interface, then install DEFT 7.2 through the same interface.  It takes about 25 minutes total.  A quick note about installation – you will have to manually browse for the DEFT 7.2 .iso file (put in *.* under file name) as YUMI wants to install version 7.1, not 7.2.  I’ve tested it, and YUMI will boot DEFT 7.2 without any problems.  I’m actually using DEFT 7.2 from YUMI to simultaneously image 3 drives on our portable forensics box via Guymager right now as I’m typing.

  • Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!
