The case scenario:
You are a forensic
examiner and have been hired by a private company to investigate the apparent
theft of a very large sum of money by an employee, Klaus Meins. The
company owner, Ive Ben Duped, said that he fired Mr. Meins last week.
Mr. Meins took his laptop computer with him, but Mr. Duped said that he
found a diskette in Mr. Meins' desk after he left. Mr. Duped said that
he carefully write protected the diskette that he found and he then looked
at it. He saw that one of the documents, "C.doc" looked phony.
He thinks that Mr. Meins backdated that document. Mr. Duped wants
you to examine the diskette and determine if the "C.doc" had been backdated.
If you can prove that "C.doc" was backdated, Mr. Duped says that he can
sue Mr. Meins and attempt to freeze his assets in order to recover his
money. You accepted a $1000 retainer to start the job.
End case scenario.
Use whatever tools
that you think necessary and examine the diskette. The answers from
our examination are located at the following location:
