SubRosaSoft has released the second major incarnation of its MacForensicsLab suite. The program sifts through data on a computer, highlighting the particular evidence investigators are searching for in a criminal case. MacForensicsLab 2.0 runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary, and enables users to to multitask -- for example by acquiring one disk, cataloging another, and salvaging a third disk image for files simultaneously. The software also includes several new tools such as a filter for skin tones in pictures, and a scan for Social Security as well as credit card numbers. MacForensicsLab 2.0 requires Mac OS X 10.3, targeting local police and other government departments. The latest revision is priced at $1,000.
