This time we we are going to talk about one of my favourite tools EvtxECmd.
So, what does Mr Zimmerman say about it:-
But it is way more than just that, coupled with ‘Timeline Explorer’ it is a ridiculously powerful tool.
Before I get into it there is a fantastic video by my friend Richard/Mr 13 Cubed that I urge you to watch as he explains it all better than I ever could.
What is EvtxECmd?
Well, as you can see if the video above it parses the event logs into a more usable format like CSV so we can load it into a viewer like ‘Timeline Explorer’ for investigation, because it is in ‘Timeline Explorer’ we can then dig down like into the Event ID and Login Type etc.
I won’t go over what has already been written by Zimmerman himself so check out his posts:-
