Ground Labs Support Team August 13, 2012 Cardholder Data Discovery


Card Recon, Data Recon and Enterprise Recon are capable of identifying common email storage formats and scanning them for sensitive data. This capability is enabled by default for any file based scanning across all Ground Labs products.


Detecting Email Storage

When an email storage format is identified, the scanning engine will natively decode the file format and scan each individual email including attachments. Where attachments contain multiple layers (e.g. a Zip file) the scanning engine will recursively decode each layer.

The associated scanning report includes a separate section to highlight all emails where cardholder data was discovered. The report specifically states elements such as Sender, Receiver, Subject, Date and Time.

  • MS Outlook/Exchange formats (PST, DBX, STM), including 32/64 bit variants

  • MBox (Thunderbird, Sendmail, Postfix, Exim, Eudora, and others)

  • Maildir (Qmail, Courier, Exim, Posfix, and others)

  • MIME encapsulated file attachments

  • Quoted printable MIME encodings
