Autopsy version 3.1.0 Beta 2 has been released. This version provides the same support as the first Beta, but corrected the UI responsiveness issues. Try out the new Android Analyzer module! What are your thoughts? What should be added next?
Happy Tuesday everyone. I am happy to say that Practical Mobile Forensics is officially released. http://www.packtpub.com/practical-mobile-forensics/book
This book was written by three of us hoping to guide those new to mobile forensics and those looking to branch into mobile device forensics. We provide practical methods for acquiring and analyzing data from smartphones and place an emphasis on open source tools, where possible.
Speaking of open source, the latest version of Autopsy is available and can be downloaded here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/autopsy/files/autopsy/3.1.0%20Beta%201/. This is a beta version, so your feedback is greatly appreciated. Let me know what you think of the Android module. What is missing? Where should we focus our efforts?

If you missed the NIST Mobile Device Forensics Workshop a few weeks ago, you can find the presentations here: http://www.nist.gov/forensics/mobile_forensics2.cfm.
Make sure to read about Open Source Mobile Device Forensics using Autopsy and scripts developed by the community, presented by yours truly. Other great presentations were provided by Cindy Murphy on Mobile Malware and Shafik Punja on the state of BlackBerry Forensics. There are several presentations that are fit for those breaking into Mobile Device Forensics included in the link above. For your convenience, I have downloaded and included a few of my favorites in the Presentations Page on my site.
Hello everyone! I hope you are getting ready to celebrate and enjoy the extra day off this week and the 4th of July if you are in the USA.
Now that my book is done, I am left wondering what to do with my extra time (because what new mom doesn’t have plenty of extra time). I plan to focus on the latest version of Android and iOS 8, but what else is out there that needs to be answered? Are you wanting more information on one platform, an overall OS? What do you want to see more of in regards to manual decoding? What are your tools missing?
“Help me, help you!” Yep – Jerry Maguire quote for you on this lovely Thursday morning. Thoughts?
