 Forensic Analysis of a Live Linux System

"Sometimes the live procedure described here is the only way to acquire incident data because certain types of malicious code, such as LKM based rootkits, are loaded only to memory and don't modify any file or directory. A similar situation exists in Windows operating systems -- the Code Red worm is a good example of this, where the malicious code was not saved as a file, but was inserted into and then run directory from memory."
