Do you know about this master phone data extractor from an Israeli manufacturer Cellebrite? It’s an ultimate hack machine, and it can extract even wiped out data from almost every model available in the market.
So far, it has extracted data from nearly 8000 phone models of different kinds. A private investigator, Navid Sobbi, is presently using it for his business National Surveillance and Intelligence and many other intelligence agencies around the world. He owns one for $40,000 and no phone could escape this ultimate machine including safest in the market like Blackberry and iPhone models.
It could drag out data like photos, texts, locations, sms, emails, and location etc within a few minutes. Although, this kind of stuff sounds wicked most of time, but still it has some really purposeful use like hacking into the mobiles of the criminals to help acquiring evidences.
Recently, there was a case in which murder had used his mobile-flash light while burying the body, and the mobile was cracked to data and it helped proving the accused guilty.
According to Sobbi, it could bypass an iPhone within no time or say in just five minutes, which sounds to easy for an Apple device. Further, he states that from criminal matters, tendering evidences for family court cases to helping those who have deleted their data accidentally, this machine works for 90-95 percent cases. That means, you need to restore your phone back to factory setting, at least, five times before you could make it almost impossible to recover the data.
The, amazingly, it can track GPS location even if the mobile is switched off.
It’s a lethal tool and like us, there are others like the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan who have expressed their doubts over the way this tool is used or could be used as it can download all the data from a personal mobile without the owner knowing about it.
We guess, better to stay with the hard copy for my passwords.
