New forensic software released

Monday, August 22, 2005 (09:02:32)
With a raft of bogus bank Web sites and phishing scams flooding computers, it would appear that crime has gone dotcom like everything else. However, a new forensic tool has stepped into the computer crime scene to help search, not a suspect's home, but his hard drive for evidence.

Messages of fear in hi-tech invisible ink

Sunday, August 21, 2005 (15:20:38)
The first sign that something was amiss came a few days before Christmas Eve 2003. The US department of homeland security raised the national terror alert level to "high risk". The move triggered a ripple of concern throughout the airline industry and nearly 30 flights were grounded, including long hauls between Paris and Los Angeles and subsequently London and Washington.

Software hide and seek

Friday, August 12, 2005 (06:32:51)
Delete isn't enough anymore. Consider the case of Robert Johnson, the former Newsday publisher who, prosecutors allege, used a software program called Evidence Eliminator to rid his computers of CP. Pressing ''delete'' makes files invisible, perhaps, but it doesn't make them gone. Making files gone has become a booming industry unto itself. Sales of Evidence Eliminator run in the millions of dollars each year, says Andrew Churchill, managing director of Robin Hood Software of Britain - and it's just one of more than a dozen ''file shredder'' or ''anti-forensic'' products on the market...
