Two former Microsoft employees are suing the company for not protecting them from the psychological effects of viewing disturbing material.

Investigating The Most Popular Browsers You’ve Never Heard Of – Webinar Q&A

Thursday, January 12, 2017 (12:02:34)
Jamie McQuaid, our Forensics Consultant, recently hosted a webinar: Investigating the Most Popular Browsers You’ve Never Heard of. This session touched on some of the browsers that examiners and investigators need to know about for their investigations – outside the big few like Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari.

The full webinar is archived here if you want to listen in.

The webinar was popular and the in-depth look meant that there was only a little time for questions. Below Jamie looks to answer some of the more popular questions we received around incognito mode, data syncing and the Browser Activity Artifact in Magnet AXIOM.

Q1. How do examiners handle cases when the user was using private browsing mode or incognito mode? How often are these encountered? Should they be examined/handled different than normal browsing activity?

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your role at Magnet Forensics.

My name is Jade Promhouse and I’m a software tester on the development team. I joined Magnet Forensics full time in 2016 after completing my degree in Computational Math. As a software tester, I try to mimic the customer experience and perspective as closely as possible, and test the latest bug fixes and features. I add my own unique perspective to this as well. In this way, I can test the software to see if it works as the customer would expect, and also provide feedback on features to the developers and product managers.

Practical Forensic Imaging by Bruce Nikkel

Tuesday, January 10, 2017 (09:14:51)
Reviewed by Scar de Courcier, Forensic Focus

Any book that begins with a foreword by Eoghan Casey is almost guaranteed to be a vital and immensely useful read in the field of digital forensics, and Practical Forensic Imaging is no exception.

The need to securely preserve digital evidence is of the utmost importance to any investigator, particularly in criminal cases where findings may need to be upheld in a courtroom situation. Despite the huge impact of this subject matter, however, there have been precious few books on the topic to date. Luckily, Practical Forensic Imaging steps in now to fill the gap.

Windows 10 PE for Digital Forensics

Friday, January 06, 2017 (15:43:01)
by Robin Brocks, IT Forensic Expert and Incident Responder

Only a few years ago, it was a real pain creating a portable Windows on CD/ DVD or thumb drive, because the Operating System was not prepared to run on those media. There have been numerous projects and volunteers, like BartPE or the WindowsFE (Forensic Edition), to make it possible to run a complete OS from removable media, but in every case, this takes time and a lot of customizing.

Nowadays we do not only have Microsoft selling “Windows to Go”; it is easier than ever to create an own version of a portable Windows, together with everyone`s favorite tools, script or frameworks like Java or Python! Having a portable Windows 10 at your hand has some valuable advantages.

A Round-Up Of The Rich Library Of Webinars Magnet Forensics Offered In 2016

Friday, January 06, 2017 (14:49:42)
In 2016, Magnet Forensics produced eight webinars covering topics like smartphone extraction, analyzing evidence in child exploitation cases, and Android Marshmallow forensics.

One webinar in particular provided a deep dive into our artifact creation tools – Magnet AXIOM’s Custom Artifacts and Dynamic App Finder. For people familiar with our searching and carving engine in AXIOM and IEF, this webinar proved to be a great resource for creating their own artifacts when one didn’t organically exist for searching a data set.

We also partnered with Griffeye and Teel Technologies to offer greater industry insight and to help webinar attendees get the most out of their tools.

Here’s a quick overview of all the webinars created in 2016. You can find and watch them all on our Recorded Webinars Page.
