Using the Forensic Browser for SQLite to examine ANY SQLite database

Monday, January 12, 2015 (14:58:53)
We all know that SQLite has become pervasive and is common on pretty much every investigation we do and we often rely on your Swiss army knife type tools to produce reports on all of the databases found in an image. We quite often usually leave the investigation there and look no further. This might be OK, but we are potentially missing a whole host of evidence.

• What happens if the database schema has changed? (this happens regularly)
• What do we do if our tool doesn’t support that DB? (there are lots)
• Is our tool extracting all the relevant information for our case? (very often not)

These are all valid questions. New tables and fields are added to databases all the time and although a tool might produce what looks like a comprehensive report, without looking further we don’t know what we are missing!

Review: Guidance Software EnCase Training Computer Forensics I

Wednesday, December 31, 2014 (12:27:10)
During the first week of December 2014, Guidance Software ran a computer forensics training course at its Slough offices in the UK, with the aim of helping forensic practitioners to understand and use EnCase as part of their investigations.

The course was developed by Guidance Software with a view to introducing new digital forensics practitioners to the field. The students are usually new IT security professionals, law enforcement agents and forensic investigators, and many have minimal training in computing. Computer Forensics I is available both in person at one of Guidance Software's training centres, or online via their OnDemand solution, which provides live remote classes for students around the world...

Making a Difference, One Child at a Time

Tuesday, December 23, 2014 (16:47:39)
By Jad Saliba, Founder & CTO of Magnet Forensics

It’s not an issue many like to talk about, or perhaps even know about. But child sex slavery is one of the fastest growing criminal enterprises in the world. A perverse industry that preys on the poor, especially in economically disadvantaged countries, this kind of exploitation is booming in places like Haiti and the Dominican Republic. It’s fuelled by rich tourists from North America, Europe and other privileged nations, who know they can buy underage sex while on vacation, and they aren’t afraid to do it.

As a former law enforcement officer and digital forensics examiner, I’ve assisted on many child exploitation investigations and have been exposed to the heinous crimes that happen every day against children. My hat goes off to all those still in the trenches today, fighting this very difficult and very important fight. It never gets any easier, but I’ve been able to deal with the terrible things I’ve seen by trying to make a difference where I can. It’s also a big reason why I left my job in local law enforcement to develop Internet Evidence Finder full-time as the founder and CTO of Magnet Forensics. If I could help law enforcement professionals around the world potentially save thousands of children from exploitation and slavery, I had to do it.

Police, digital forensics and the case against encryption

Wednesday, December 17, 2014 (12:17:36)
Mark Stokes, head of digital and electronics forensics services at the Met Police, keynote speaker at the (ISC)² EMEA Congress in London on Tuesday, detailed the techniques and technologies used to forensically investigate criminals who, he says, are increasingly reliant on smartphones, cloud services, hard disk drives (HDDs) and solid-state drives (SSDs) to hide their activities or crimes.

This deluge of data is becoming hard to investigate, says Stokes, who cited the increasing number of devices used(terrorists are said to have up to six mobile phones each on average), and this is happening in a digital economy which is already seeing the arrival of 1TB USB thumb drives and new US data centres hosting exabytes or Yottabytes of data...
