No Anti-Forensics Here

I recently received a comment on a specific method of anti-forensics prompted by one of my posts.  I rejected the comment and here's why:

I will not write about specific anti-forensic methods on this blog, nor will I publish comments that include such information.

For those willing to do the research, such information is available.  Just not here.


  1. The most effective anti-forensic method is the incompetence of first responders and computer examiners :-)

  2. I am not sure exactly what you mean since that is a pretty broad statement. Improper handling of evidence is a problem both forensically and in the legal process.

    Incorrectly worded warrants and subpoenas can cause severe problems as well. The entire process can be complex and fraught with pitfalls for persons unfamiliar with the overall process of gathering, protecting and examining evidence.

  3. What I meant Larry, is that incompetence more often impacts the outcome than anti-forensics.

  4. Incompetence works both ways. Criminals are usually more incompetent and undereducated than examiners. It's only a select few that bother to try and cover their tracks, and even fewer that actually manage to do so completely.
