Magnet AXIOM Adds Support For Facebook, Instagram, And Snapchat Warrant Returns

In the latest versions of Magnet AXIOM, we’ve introduced a number of updates to support warrant returns for some of the biggest social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. You can get this warrant return support, along with many more features, when you upgrade to the newly available Magnet AXIOM 3.3.

In addition to support for Facebook warrant returns which came in AXIOM 3.0, AXIOM can now ingest and analyze warrant returns from Instagram and Snapchat. This will help shed light on a person’s online persona, allowing you to see who is following the user, who the user is following, messages, group chat details, all media files, and posts, in addition to direct stories, and direct shares (including media and messages).

SQLite Viewer Improvements
AXIOM 3.1 saw the introduction of an overhauled SQLite Viewer, and AXIOM 3.2 continued to make AXIOM’s SQLite Viewer even easier to use.

You can now convert various different data types in SQLite to more human-readable data, including date/times, binary data and various types of encoded strings. For binary data, you can view common data types such as pictures and plists within AXIOM. And we’ve added “open with” functionality to give you the ability to open binary data in an app or program of your choice.

SIM Card Imaging and Processing

AXIOM 3.3 now allows you to recover information stored on SIM cards, such as contacts and any SMS messages in addition to a number of artifacts, including unique ones like Integrated Circuit Card ID (ICCID) and International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI.)

LG Lock Bypass Support
You will now be able to bypass the lock screen on certain LG-based devices and perform an acquisition of the device without needing the passcode.

Media Categorization Enhancements
On top of the enhancements brought to media categorization in AXIOM 3.0, AXIOM 3.2 brought support for setting a priority when configuring hash sets. This is useful because AXIOM will accurately assign evidence to the proper category when multiple hash sets have the same hash value and are assigned in different categories.

Summary information in PDF and HTML reports have also been added, making it easier to see how much known content was found by hash sets. It will also allow you to see the breakdown of content by category for materials graded by reviewers, making it easier to gather this information for reporting and charging purposes.

Additionally, you can more easily export reviewer graded content and select the specific categories that get hash data/media attachments included in the export when submitting back to Project VIC or CAID repositories.

AXIOM 3.3 has seen even more enhancements, including:
– The same media category is automatically applied to other media items that have the matching hashes — keeping you from duplicating the work or being exposed to the same content again
– A media categorization summary report is available (in HTML and PDF) and will include the number of unique hashes in each category, helping you determine how many illegal images are found in the case

Performance Improvements
AXIOM 3.3 is optimized to perform faster with large data sets. You should see a significant gain in performance when doing case load, searching, filtering, and sorting.
