UC Browser on Android and iOS
UC Browser is a cross-platform web browser developed by mobile internet company UCWeb, a subsidiary of the Alibaba Group. It is primarily targeted at mobile platforms and is extremely popular in India, Indonesia and China. It also encrypts many of the databases used to store user data.
In this release of NetAnalysis®, we have enhanced our support for UC Browser on Android and iOS. We can now decrypt History, Most Recent Visited History, Search Data and Bookmarks.
Decrypting UC Login Data on Android
We have also added support for decrypting usernames and passwords.
With the release of HstEx® v5.1, we have added the ability to search and recover MFT entries containing resident Zone Identifier data. This provides us with a lot of information regarding the original file. The recovered data is easily read into NetAnalysis® for examination. The image below shows a number of recovered Zone Identifier entries. The Information panel shows the associated MFT attribute information along with the Zone Transfer data from the Zone.Identifier stream.
