Scientists have created a tool to help forensic scientists in the investigation of crimes.


Researchers at Purdue University and University of new Orleans developed a new method of retrieving data from the memory of Android devices, designed to help forensic scientists in the investigation of crimes. Created by scientists Retroscope tool is able to retrieve information which the user previously opened screens in 15 applications, including Signal, Skype, WeChat, Gmail, Facebook, WhatsApp and Telegram devices Samsung S4, LG G3, and HTC One.

According to the researchers, their method represents "a new paradigm in the forensic analysis of smartphones," radically different from all existing methods of analysis of hard disks and volatile storage devices". As noted by the head of research Brendan, Saltaformaggio (Brendan Saltaformaggio, he was surprised at the lack of adequate protection of the in-memory application data, which after displaying on the screen must be removed.

Scientists developed method is based on earlier studies, allows you to restore the last information displayed on the display device. Retroscope is described as a tool for getting data enabled, unlocked tablets and smartphones.

As noted by the researchers that appear on the screen of the application data is stored in memory much longer than the "packaging" of their data graphical user interface. Moreover, according to the command framework, an Android application can restore the displayed screens. Implemented in Retroscope innovative engine allows you to selectively use this functionality. The tool is able to recover from 3 to 11 previously opened screens in a variety of popular Android apps.
