Tuesday, January 17, 2017 (13:28:07)
"Documentary thriller about warfare in a world without rules - the world of cyberwar. It tells the story of Stuxnet, self-replicating computer malware, known as a 'worm' for its ability to burrow from computer to computer on its own. In a covert operation, the American and Israeli intelligence agencies allegedly unleashed Stuxnet to destroy a key part of an Iranian nuclear facility. Ultimately the 'worm' spread beyond its intended target."

Investigating The Most Popular Browsers You’ve Never Heard Of – Webinar Q&A

Thursday, January 12, 2017 (12:02:34)
Jamie McQuaid, our Forensics Consultant, recently hosted a webinar: Investigating the Most Popular Browsers You’ve Never Heard of. This session touched on some of the browsers that examiners and investigators need to know about for their investigations – outside the big few like Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari.

The full webinar is archived here if you want to listen in.

The webinar was popular and the in-depth look meant that there was only a little time for questions. Below Jamie looks to answer some of the more popular questions we received around incognito mode, data syncing and the Browser Activity Artifact in Magnet AXIOM.

Q1. How do examiners handle cases when the user was using private browsing mode or incognito mode? How often are these encountered? Should they be examined/handled different than normal browsing activity?

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your role at Magnet Forensics.

My name is Jade Promhouse and I’m a software tester on the development team. I joined Magnet Forensics full time in 2016 after completing my degree in Computational Math. As a software tester, I try to mimic the customer experience and perspective as closely as possible, and test the latest bug fixes and features. I add my own unique perspective to this as well.

Practical Forensic Imaging by Bruce Nikkel

Tuesday, January 10, 2017 (09:14:51)
Reviewed by Scar de Courcier, Forensic Focus

Any book that begins with a foreword by Eoghan Casey is almost guaranteed to be a vital and immensely useful read in the field of digital forensics, and Practical Forensic Imaging is no exception.

The need to securely preserve digital evidence is of the utmost importance to any investigator, particularly in criminal cases where findings may need to be upheld in a courtroom situation. Despite the huge impact of this subject matter, however, there have been precious few books on the topic to date. Luckily, Practical Forensic Imaging steps in now to fill the gap.
