Belkasoft Helping Security of Olympics in Rio

We at Belkasoft are, as many others, excited about the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil. At the same time, it is time of high pressure, large workloads, and great responsibility for those who watch for the security of society. With this in mind, Belkasoft CEO Yuri Gubanov, who will be volunteering for the Games in Rio, has come up with a good idea how to help Brazilian Law Enforcement organisations ensure safety of the event.

Together with our partners in Brazil, Apura, we will be providing the Brazilian police with free licenses of our flagship forensic software – Belkasoft Evidence Center.

Analyzing Windows Phone 8.1 JTAG and UFED Dumps

In recent months, we’ve started receiving calls from our customers asking us about extracting files and looking for evidence in binary dumps extracted out of Windows Phone 8 devices. We’ve got dozens of requests from European police departments, especially those from Germany, Italy, and the UK about extracting and analyzing JTAG and UFED-produced dumps of Windows phones. While in the past we were reluctant to work in this direction considering how small of a market share these devices had, the recently published numbers of every 10th device sold in Europe being a Windows Phone made us change our mind.

Meet the newest release of Belkasoft Evidence Center! In this release, we’ve added the ability to process, parse, and extract information stored in binary dumps of Windows Phone devices captured with JTAG or Cellebrite UFED hardware. We can fully reconstruct the original file system of the device, allowing experts to browse through the file system and view and extract individual files and folders.

Our signature discovery and analytics are also there for Windows Phone data. The updated Belkasoft Evidence Center will automatically search for, extract and analyze the many types of evidence essential for your investigation. Contacts and address books, call logs, Skype chats and communication histories in third-party messengers, browsing history and cached social network conversations are carefully extracted and added to the list of available evidence.


Belkasoft helps Croatian police solve serious crime

One morning, we received an official looking envelope with a Croatian postal stamp. Intrigued, we opened the letter. It contained a message from the Ministry of Interior Police Administration Bjelovarsko-bilogorska of Croatia. In this message, they sent us a story of a crime that was solved by the Criminal Police Department of Bjelovar, Croatia. Why did they mail us? Because they used Belkasoft Evidence Center to solve that crime.

According to the report, during February 2014 the Croatian police worked on a case they code-named “PHOTOMODELL”. During this case of child pornography, the police was trying to find evidence against a suspect. And they did! Using Belkasoft Evidence Center to search the suspect’s several hard drives, the police were able to discover solid evidence connecting the suspect with the crime. Apparently, they gathered enough evidence for the court to convict the suspect.
