Magnet Axiom 1.2.6 is now available for download! Now with support for Google Hangouts, DictionaryAttack password cracking on BitLocker, TrueCrypt and PGP encrypted devices with Passware, Inc. and improvements to Axiom Cloud and reporting.
The latest version of Magnet AXIOM is ready for customers to download either at the Customer Portal or when you open AXIOM. Magnet AXIOM 1.2.6 brings improvements to Cloud acquisition — including support for Google Hangouts — as well as an update to our Passware integration that helps with password cracking and other reporting updates.
Improvements to Magnet AXIOM Cloud
In addition to AXIOM 1.2.6 now allowing you to acquire data from Google Hangouts using AXIOM Cloud, you can now also load previously generated cloud image acquisitions for analysis. Now you don’t have to delay processing and analyzing mobile and computer evidence while waiting for a cloud acquisition to complete.
Password Cracking on Full Disk Decryption
Thanks to our integration of Passware, Magnet Forensics brought the ability to analyze content from drives running various types of encryption software (such as BitLocker, TrueCrypt and PGP). In 1.2.6, the ability to do a dictionary attack on any supported encrypted device is added. This, combined with wordlists created by using the AXIOM Wordlist Generator, unlock a device by using possible common passwords when the password is not known will be attempted.
Updated Reporting on Filesystem and Artifact Explorers
Finally, after updating to 1.2.6, you’ll be able to export a single report with tagged items from both the filesystem AND artifacts explorers — saving time by reporting the same way you go through the evidence.
