The 2022 Volatility Plugin Contest results are in!

Results from the 10th Annual Volatility Plugin Contest are in! There were 8 submissions this year, including submissions from 2 contestants from previous years who have continued to build on their previous work. Submissions included updates to graphical interfaces, plugins to detect Linux rootkits, plugins to extract threat actor activity despite anti-forensics techniques, and a new analytical capability for leveraging handle information to augment investigations. As usual, we would like to thank the participants for their hard work on their submissions and contributions to Volatility community!

Independent open source projects and communities only remain viable because of contributors who are willing to sacrifice their time and resources. Please show your appreciation for the contestants’ contributions by following them on Twitter/GitHub/LinkedIn, providing feedback on their ideas, and helping to improve their code with testing, documentation, or contributing patches.
