Tracking Malware

I’m currently looking for a Forensics research paper topics. In reviewing current research topics in Forensics I read one paper I thought was worth sharing here.
Checking Microsoft Windows Systems for Signs of Compromise by Baker, Green, Meyer, and Cochrane.
The goals of the paper are to document actions to be taken when dealing with a compromised Microsoft system. Additionally the paper tries to explain how we can best investigate the system, find points of entry and compromise.
