Document metadata

Tuesday, December 06, 2005 (08:48:11)
Few things in the world of digital documents are as pesky and revealing as "metadata" -- the information automatically embedded in documents by popular software such as Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat.

Meet Bergen's top cyber cop

Monday, November 28, 2005 (05:04:09)
Paramus detectives investigating a money-laundering scheme had confiscated a computer they suspected held crucial evidence. But its hard drive apparently had been wiped clean. At the time, many North Jersey police departments lacked the technical savvy and financial resources to investigate crimes involving computers. So the Paramus detectives did what many investigators facing similar stumbling blocks did: They headed to Upper Saddle River. There, working in a cramped cubicle in the 18-member Police Department, was Andrew Donofrio, a young sergeant who had made computer forensics a part-time hobby...

The acid test will come in March 2006, when the government faces the choice of backing a 10 minute rule bill by Glasgow South MP Tom Harris to update the Computer Misuse Act...

Monday, November 21, 2005 (12:22:42)
The sheer number and volume of current storage devices can be tough for the average computer user to handle, but what about computer investigators that must look for criminal information? Criminals try to hide information on their 200 GByte harddrives and portable devices like an iPod or cellular phone, but computer forensic investigators can usually recover the data.
