As a forensic examiner, you rely on a variety of tools to conduct your investigations.

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!
