File Time information has a significant meaning in digital forensic investigation. File time information in Linux Ext4 (Extended File System 4) environment is the Access Time, Modification Time, Inode Change Time, Deletion Time and Creation Time. File time is variously changed by user manipulations such as creation, copy and edit. And, the study of file time change is necessary for evidence analysis. This study analyzes the change in time information of files or folders resulting from user manipulations in Linux operating system and analyzes ways to determine real time of malware infection and whether the file was modulation.
