Deployment Method:

NOTE

This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)


2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade mft2csv -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade mft2csv -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

WARNING

Description

Introduction

This tool is for parsing, decoding and logging information from the Master File Table ($MFT) to a csv. It is logging a large amount of data and that has been the main purpose from the very start. Having all this data in a csv is convenient for further analysis. It supports getting the $MFT from a variety of sources.

Details

Input can be any of the following:

Raw/dd image of disk (MBR and GPT supported)
Raw/dd image of partition
$MFT extracted file
Reading of $MFT directly from a live system
Reading of $MFT by accessing .\PhysicalDriveN directly (no mount point needed).
Reading of $MFT directly from within shadow copies.
$MFT fragments extracted from memory dumps or unallocated (see MFTCarver).
Single records extracted. See MftRcrd with the -w switch.

There is an option to choose which UTC region to decode for. For instance you have a disk image and the target system had a timezone configuration of UTC -9.30, then you can configure it like that and get the timestamps directly into UTC 0.00. Default is UTC 0.00, and if running on a live system, there is no need to do anything as timestamps are automatically set to UTC 0.00.

The format of output can be chosen. Currently it is possible to choose from:

All (will write to csv everything it can). Default set.
log2timeline: http://code.google.com/p/log2timeline/wiki/l2t_csv
bodyfile (v3.x): http://wiki.sleuthkit.org/index.php?title=Body_file

It is possible to parse broken/partial $MFT by configuring "Broken $MFT". This setting is necessary if for instance index number 0 is missing (the record for $MFT itself).

Also it is possible to configure the tool to skip fixups. This is something you may want if you are working on memory dumps. If so, you need to run MFTCarver on the memdump first. Then run mft2csv on the output file from MFTCarver. Must have both "Broken $MFT" and "Skip Fixups" configured in such a case.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
