Oxygen Forensics, a global leader in digital forensics for law enforcement, federal, and corporate clients, has announced the release of Oxygen Forensic® Detective 12.4, the company’s flagship software. The latest release includes several new features and introduces a simplified user interface and enhanced functionality for many of the software most essential tools. In total, the new release extends device support to over 36,000 unique devices, including 500 new Android devices. This version also provides app support for more than 500 new app versions across both Android and Apple iOS, ensuring that users have everything they need to contend with an ever-shifting technological landscape.Oxygen Forensic® Detective 12.4 delivers several new features, including MTK Android device rooting, a new method of physical extraction that serves as a useful alternative to the already available MTK Android dump method. Where the MTK Android dump method allows users to bypass both screen lock and disk encryption (either software or hardware) to extract a complete and decrypted physical dump, the new method enhances support for Android devices based on Mediatek chipset by enabling physical extraction via rooting. MTK Android device rooting is compatible with over 80% of Android devices that are based on Mediatek arm64 chipset and have a security patch level of March 1, 2020 or older.
Other new features include an updated Oxygen Forensic® Cloud Extractor, an all-new Statistics section, and a newly designed File Viewer for SQLite database analysis. The updated Oxygen Forensic® Cloud Extractor now enables users to perform data extraction from Skype, with authorization supported via Skype credentials, phone number, Microsoft credentials, or Microsoft token extracted from Apple iOS and Android devices. Meanwhile, the new Statistics section represents a significant expansion of Oxygen Forensic® Detective’s analytical toolset, providing a comprehensive analysis of user activity with helpful statistical data organized into a variety of easy-to-use widgets. The newly designed File Viewer makes the process of working with SQLite databases even more convenient, delivering versatile functionality and impressive processing power that is several times faster than the built-in Oxygen Forensic® SQLite Viewer.
In addition to new features, the Oxygen Forensic® Detective 12.4 release also brings a streamlined and efficient new design to well-established software components like the Import Wizard and augments other established components with new capabilities. Updates to the Import Wizard present users with a new, simplified interface for backup import that enables users to configure data import much more thoroughly and precisely. The revamped Oxygen Forensic® KeyScout can now collect and automatically decrypt data from the secure Signal Messenger on Windows, macOS, and Linux computers—expanding upon preexisting support for Apple iOS and Android devices.
“Looking at the breadth and depth of the additions we’ve made to Oxygen Forensic® Detective with this latest release, it’s easy to see why our software is still the most powerful and robust digital forensics solution on the market,” said Lee Reiber, COO of Oxygen Forensics. “We’ve always been committed to ensuring that our users have everything they need to get the job done under any circumstances, and it shows. The fact is that no other digital forensics software offers anywhere near the same variety in terms of technical capability, device compatibility, or—thanks to JetEngine—sheer power.”
Oxygen Forensic® Detective 12.4 also allows users to import and parse Snapchat Warrant Returns, provides updated support for Google Mail service in the wake of the recent Google communication protocol change, and an enhanced ability to extract contacts, device list, email addresses, and more from Huawei Cloud. The Oxygen Forensic Detective suite of tools is available to previously vetted and appropriately licensed law enforcement organizations.
