Transferring A Password Recovery Process To A Different Computer

Thursday, August 22, 2019 (14:12:45)
Did you know that Passware Kit can create a snapshot of a password recovery process at any time and resume it on a different computer?

Running a password recovery attack, especially for multiple files or drives, might be a long process that requires a lot of hardware resources.

In some cases, it might be necessary to put an attack on hold to launch a different attack, or to resume the same attack on a more powerful hardware setup with multiple Passware Kit Agents.

BlackBag Announces New Partnership With Berla

Thursday, August 22, 2019 (12:19:45)
BlackBag Technologies announces a new partnership with industry-leading vehicle forensics company, Berla.

In today’s investigations, it is now commonplace to have multiple digital devices associated to one case. As such, consolidating acquired devices is critical when reconstructing a sequence of events for a case. Whenever a mobile device is connected to a vehicle system via USB, Bluetooth, or Wi-Fi, some data from that device is stored in the vehicle. Potentially, device contacts, call logs, and SMS messages are stored and can thus be acquired in iVe, though the exact data types recorded will vary from one vehicle to another. As infotainment and telematics systems become increasingly prevalent, eventually just about every crime that necessitates digital analysis revolves around data stored on not only mobile devices but on vehicles as well.

Huawei Device Support In Oxygen Forensic Detective

Monday, August 19, 2019 (15:15:59)
Oxygen Forensic Detective offers various methods of data extraction from Huawei devices. First, Huawei devices can be connected via USB cable for logical or physical acquisition depending on the model and Android OS version. However, with constantly growing device security direct data extraction from a device is getting more and more difficult. With this in mind we keep on introducing alternative methods of device data extraction. For Huawei devices we have two options.

Interview With Nicole Odom, Forensic Scientist, Virginia DFS

Monday, August 19, 2019 (09:30:03)
Nicole, you started out in chemistry and biological sciences before moving from orthopedics to digital forensics. What prompted you to pivot into the cyber world?

I actually get asked that question quite frequently, as my background has a little bit of everything; however, all of my experiences are centered on some type of science. I have always enjoyed researching and building from small ideas, so I knew that I wanted to pursue science in my undergraduate studies. Chemistry was the most inviting because it was so hands-on, and I knew I could focus on something I really enjoyed while taking the extra classes that would allow me to pursue the medical sciences. Once I graduated, I looked for a job in medical research and got the opportunity to experience the human-related aspect; however, I quickly realized that I wanted to go back to school and pursue a degree that allowed me to work in a setting where every day is different within the lab. It was actually a friend who told me that I should look into the forensic sciences because he felt like it was right up my alley, and I’m so grateful for his push.
