Digital Forensics Case Leads: Registry and Malware Analysis Tools, Preparing to Testify, and Virtual Machine Technology on Mobile Devices

This week's edition of Case Leads features a number of new tools and updates for a few of the old standbys. We have a collection of tools designed for studying malware found on Windows or Android platforms and a couple of new applications for registry analysis.

Virtual machine technology is heading for Android based devices as a couple of vendors team up to make it happen. We also feature articles about testifying at trial, "breaking in" to the field of Digital Forensics and the plethora of personal information associated with mobile applications.
