Chat decode Software
Looking of a good comprehensive chat session decoder. Paraben has just released one that does not cover AOL chat files. Has anyone out there tried this or have any suggestions ?
Unfortunately, AOL IM client do not store cache on disk. it is possible only to intercept (sniff) network messages in real time.
what about yahoo?
There are a couple of good utilities for decoding yahoo chat logs. if you are law enforcement there is one knocking about calloed yahoom that can be used in conjunction with encase scripts to recover deleted yahoo.dat files as well as active files. Another good one is called yahoo super chat decoder that is a free download (just google it and you will get loads of hits).
Hope these help
