FIRE Home:

FIRE is a portable bootable cdrom based distribution with the goal of providing an immediate environment to perform forensic analysis, incident response, data recovery, virus scanning and vulnerability assessment.

Also provides necessary tools for live forensics/analysis on win32, sparc solaris and x86 linux hosts just by mounting the cdrom and using trusted static binaries available in /statbins.

Tough question... hmmmm, because it's proven tremendously useful perhaps?...

If you'd like to help this project along, use it, submit feature requests, and check out the public Task Manager, maybe there is something there that you can work on!

Hey all. Or anyone who reads this for that matter. F.I.R.E isn't dead, just went silent for a little too long. The project team just doesn't have the same time to work on it as much as was available in the past. Have pretty much upgraded everything, added a bunch of new tools, added a bit more methodology and automation. But it's still not a tool for dummies. Would love to see FIRE get there, release coming soon. Just want to do a bunch of QA on it before pushing a crappy release.

New Release
    ch4nge - 2003-05-14 11:33   -   DMZS-Biatchux Bootable CD Distro
Hey everyone, the SANS webcast was fun, and things have been busy. I promised I'd have something out by the 14th as I will be out of action for a while... taking a vacation and moving. This is an alpha release to show off the changes, which are tremendous if you are familiar under the hood, but I just didn't get as far as I'd liked with it before release. Some things are fixed, other things are still broken, and due to upgrades, a few things that were fine before are now broken! remember... I'm calling this an alpha release! but it's stable for it's intended purpose... Tools have been upgraded, etc... etc... etc.... I didn't get to incorporate ALL of the recent enhancement requests, but will do so once I get back online.

FIRE turned a year old (and I forgot)
    ch4nge - 2003-02-11 23:41   -   DMZS-Biatchux Bootable CD Distro
So FIRE has turned a year old, which I forgot. Been through alot with it, changed it's name... Learned alot. Screwed up alot. But in the end the improvements outweigh the trouble it's been. So without much fanfare... happy fireday to cd.
Next release coming slowly

Sorry I haven't pushed any releases lately, I've lost a few hard drives recently. (Yes, I have backups), so things have been slow going. I expect to get back on track within the next few weeks, and should get something out there soon.
FIRE v0.3.5b released!
    ch4nge - 2002-11-29 07:13   -   DMZS-Biatchux Bootable CD Distro

Post F.A.C.T update! next iso release coming soon
    ch4nge - 2002-11-24 13:11   -   DMZS-Biatchux Bootable CD Distro
After spending the last week at the FACT conference , have made many enhancements, but as always will NEVER be finished. Can't wait to get this one out there for everyone to test out.
0.2.1b development is moving along nicely
    ch4nge - 2002-09-13 07:10   -   DMZS-Biatchux Bootable CD Distro
FIRElite release v0.2b!!!
    ch4nge - 2002-08-19 07:00   -   DMZS-Biatchux Bootable CD Distro
I've pushed the first release since renaming the project. Lots of improvements mostly coming out of work done at the Digital Forensic Research Workshop .
Most significant is the near full automation of task/Autopsy setup to allow immediate (local or remote) forensic analysis of local drives (thanks to Brian Carrier for helping me on this).
Addition of many tools, version upgrades, etc..
package listing update

Thanks to Mark (fat) for pointing out and providing corrections and updates to the package listing for FIRE! I've also been busy adding tools as well.
