New Foursquare, Google Calendar, Google Talk and Yahoo! Mail sections
Oxygen Forensic Suite 2011 extracts personal data and passwords from many mobile applications and the new version adds to this list four more apps, namely Foursquare, Google Calendar Google Talk and Yahoo! Mail. Foursquare is an example of social software that provides a lot of information for analysis: contacts, places of interest, geo-location. All applications are popular and widely used both in business and personal use. Now, the forensic investigator can find out the date and time of the installation and launch of these applications, grab logins and passwords to accounts on the online services and examine the suspects personal schedule in Google Calendar and messages in Yahoo! Mail. Oxygen Forensic Suite 2011 extracts application internal date using proprietary methods for physical analysis of Android smartphones.
Full forensic access to 9 out of 10 Android smart phones
The Android rooting add-on that was introduced in the previous version of Oxygen Forensic Suite, has been improved and now allows the expert to extract data from smart phones with Android 1.6. In other words, its possible to hack 9 out of 10 Android devices. The rooting add-on exploits a critical breach in the Android protection scheme for physical extraction of all data from the device, including the file system and user data. Earlier, the company announced that Oxygen Forensic Suite could access smart phones with Android 2.0 to 2.2, which according to statistics represent more than 85% of all Android devices. Oxygen engineers keep on improving the tool and soon plan to launch the add-on that extracts data from all Android phones, regardless of their version.
Export Google Maps data to Google Earth
Oxygen Forensic Suite 2011 lets the investigator trace all places visited by the phone user. However quite often there is no internet access in the forensic lab due to security policies. With the new release, the investigator can export Google Maps data to Google Earth and examine the route of the device user offline.
Simultaneous extraction and analysis of data
The new version lets the investigator start the extraction of data from a new device, while examining the previously retrieved data. Not only does it save time, but also saves money as there is no need to buy additional licenses to perform operations simultaneously. Earlier, the program could only read data, and the user had to wait until the end of the process, which depending on the amount of data could last from several minutes to several hours.
