Visible Secrets

Posted in Commentary at 7:03 am by Michael Sweeney Media

I was told about a cool tool for anyone using the Mac as a forensics tool. The tool is called FileJuicer and is available only for the Mac. This tool does a byte by byte search for any file it knows the format of while they are embedded in text file, MP4, browser cache, AVI, HTML and many other formats. This ablity to dig into a file and extract data out is very powerful for a varity of purposes. The example on the website is pulling images out of a windows screen saver application. I did a test to pull up the images from my FIrefox cache. It pulled up all the images and movie files that I had previewed over the past weeks. It made a good case to clear the cache each week 🙂 I have not tried the flash card recovery trick but I have no reason to doubt it would work well for that also.
