Extended DOS Partition Test (Brian Carrier)


CTFs & Images

Test Images
Most DOS partition tools will not allow the user to create a third entry in an extended partition. A test image was created by modifying the partition table by hand with a hex editor and the system was booted. Both Windows and Linux read the third entry in the extended partition table and allowed the user to mount the partition. This test was to verify that forensic tools also allowed the investigator to view the partition in the third entry.
