The attached zip file contains hash values derived from MS Windows 8 and 10 applications commonly found within the MS Windows App Store. Specifically, more than 2,000 common business, home, education and game apps which were subsequently installed, analyzed and then gathered into MD5, SHA-1 and SHA-256 hash sets.
Duplicate hash values were also removed intentionally from each grouped hash set as an aid in expediting future computer forensic and/or computer security examinations.
These hash values can be utilized to assist in the elimination of non-threatening files during computer forensic and computer security examinations (Computer Compromises, Network Intrusions, eDiscovery, Malware Analysis, etc).
