This is a list of the web sites mentioned in the book.


The CFReDS Project, where the evidence files were located.  The table where the link used to be for the hacking case indicates it has been removed.  They still have reference images and other useful files. The evidence files can still be found (so far) here.  If that is no longer available, please contact me.
