RevEnge hex viewer

RevEnge is a fully featured hex viewer designed with Reverse Engineering in mind (hence the name). It comes with features not seen in other Hex viewers such as its ability to perform on the fly decompression of ZLib compressed data, display and search for dates in multiple date formats and decode SMS messages encoded in GSM PDU 7 bit ASCII.

An abridged feature list can be found below…RevEnge will allow on the fly decoding of ZLib, ROT13, ROT18, ROT47 and UUEncoded data – i.e. as you move the cursor RevEnge will attempt to decode and display the data from the cursor using the appropriate algorithm

– Decode and display the GSM 7 character set – can assist finding text messages or fragments of text messages in mobile phone hex dumps

– Date searching – search for a date in a specific date range using any or all of the inbuilt 12 date types (including 4 variants of dates found almost exclusively on mobile phones)

– define your own structures – RevEnge will decode the data from the current cursor position according to the current structure definition – move the cursor and the displayed structure data is updated accordingly

Alan Platt, Professional Services Consultant at MSAB, discusses his experience as a former UK police officer working in digital forensics. He talks about the different levels of digital forensics capabilities within police forces and how MSAB products like XAMN and XEC Director are used by frontline officers versus lab analysts. 

The discussion covers how MSAB partners with law enforcement to develop custom workflows for mobile device acquisitions that facilitate ISO compliance. Alan explains MSAB's managed service offering, where approved MSAB staff can remotely access a customer's XEC Director server to assist with software updates and troubleshooting. He emphasizes the strict data segregation policies enforced by customers to prevent MSAB from accessing any sensitive case data.
