    Are you going to update Volatility 3 1.0.1 for Volatility Workbench?
    thank you very much for the software

    We are already using Volatility At least that was what is called at the time. But their old numbing doesn't seem to make sense in the context of their new numbering from the last few months. I also note that they haven't been able to get it working on Windows as a binary. "Windows binary versions will be added once a solution has been found to all pyinstaller packages being identified as malware".

    But yes, we are a few months behind and it needs to be updated. It is on out to do list.

        According to their web site V3.1 is current. (which now confusingly seems to be called, Volatility 3 v1.0.0)

        But yes, this doesn't match Github, which has Volatility 3 v2.0.0

        Still doesn't seem to be any Windows executable binary either.

        We'll have a look at it when we get time.

        Update: Volatility Workbench v3.0.1003 with Windows binary was released based on code from July 18, 2022

              hi; David
              At what stage is the Volatility Workbench update? Are you going to do a new update?
              thank you

                Hi David,
                Volatility Workbench is sticking out as by providing Windows-versions of Volatility3 ever since. Please Keep it up! This is great work and really appreciated. One reason I choose OSF commercially.

                I license OSF commercially and would love to get the current release of Volatility 3 2.4.0 with proper dependencies (including python-yara 4.x) compiled into a windows binary, As usually a memory dump is accompanied with a disk image. The Workbench is fine but sometimes it is more handsome to do stuff directly on the command line. Also for batch processing and so on. Virtualenv is not allways the best solution.

                Those added modules in vol 3 2.4.0 are really important
                • windows.devicetree
                • windows.joblinks
                • windows.ldrmodules
                • windows.mbrscan
                • windows.mftscan
                • windows.sessions
                ​I would love to get my hands on a new windows binary soon.
                Kind Regards

                        Hi there;

                        5 days ago there was a major enhancement of volatility3 with the version 2.5.2

                        Are you going to integrate it with full python-yara support in the standalone Volatility workbench or OSF 11 as a windows binary?

                        Kind Regards

                          V2.5.0 to V2.5.2 doesn't seem like that major of an upgrade?


                          • #14
                            Well V2.5.2 will be obviously the stable version until the Blackhat conference in August 2024. And since 2.5.0 in late September 2023 (5 month ago) there have been numerous stability enhancements under the hood.

                            But the most important new feature of V2.5.2 is:
                            There are 2 new FileLayers added, that make it possible to use the S3-buckets on Amazon natively and also GCS-storage in Google's cloud.
                            This adds remote analysis capability which come in very handy.

                            Kind Regards
