Volatility Linux Profiles

I decided a couple days ago to try out Volatility's ability to examine Linux memory images. I had never tried capturing RAM from a Linux machine, aside from .vmem files, so this was all new territory for me. My friend Gleeda recommended I use LiME to capture ram, so I headed over to the LiME Googlecode project page and grabbed a copy. I may post about the entire process later, but just wanted to make a small announcement for now.

After successfully imaging and examining RAM, I decided to make several profiles for machines I regularly interact with. After that, I decided I may as well share them with others. Therefore, I have created a Github page with the four profiles I've created so far. I will be creating and posting more very soon. It isn't much, but I've wanted to find some way to contribute back to the community and thought this would be a good start
