The M57-Jean scenario is a single disk image scenario involving the exfiltration of corporate documents from the laptop of a senior executive. The scenario involves a small start-up company, M57.Biz. A few weeks into inception a confidential spreadsheet that contains the names and salaries of the company’s key employees was found posted to the “comments” section of one of the firm’s competitors. The spreadsheet only existed on one of M57’s officers—Jean.
Jean says that she has no idea how the data left her laptop and that she must have been hacked.
You have been given a disk image of Jean’s laptop. Your job is to figure out how the data was stolen—or if Jean isn’t as innocent as she claims.
