Software that runs home routers, cell phones and personal digital assistants is rife with security bugs
VANCOUVER, B.C.--Software that runs home routers, cell phones and personal digital assistants is rife with security bugs, an expert said Thursday.
Of the straight (i.e., not over-the-network) computer forensic tools we examined, EnCase has made the most noticeable changes since last year. However, a few changes simply are cosmetic. That said, we liked EnCase better this year than last for one important reason: it has kept pace well with the needs of users.There are some familiar things missing in this release. For example, the DOS version no longer is supported, but imaging a computer can now use a Linux boot disk that you must create by downloading a Linux distribution and creating a bootable CD.
AccessData is one of the venerable developers of computer forensic software. The company’s biggest strength is that it is — and has been since its inception — the go-to supplier of password recovery tools. AccessData has packaged its complete tool set in one product called the Ultimate Toolkit. In addition to the Forensic Tool Kit, referred to by forensic analysts simply as FTK, the Ultimate Toolkit contains the full suite of password recovery tools, drive and media wipers, a registry viewer and other useful products.
