Friday, July 22, 2016 (07:48:47)

This has confirmed our long standing suspicion that data hiding techniques using a hard disk drives Service Area could be used for malicious purposes. Kaspersky Labs® identified a group of attackers, dubbed the Equation Group, reportedly having close ties to the groups responsible for writing Stuxnet and Flame.

The “Equation Group” is reported to have run the most advanced hacking operation ever uncovered (Goodin 2015).

What Can The SV Strike Do For You? Unlock Thousands Of Phones!

Tuesday, July 19, 2016 (10:37:04)
The SV Strike is the only stand-alone pincode/passcode/pattern breaking tool built as a forensic device and now has a new low price. The SV Strike is capable of acquiring 6 digit pincode/passcodes on the most popular phones. More than just a simple brute force “box.” Created and built in the United States, this new technology gives the forensic investigator the go-to tool for breaking into iPhones and Androids. With easy to view videos and instructions, the SV Strike will replace foreign devices with questionable abilities. While hacker tools were able to break into certain phones, they were not built for law enforcement purposes. The SV Strike combined the need to access phones quickly, with need for accurate reporting features. Current phones supported include Android phones with USB OTG capability and iOS devices through 8.0.
