Welcome to XRY Viewer

Our latest app to make it easier than ever to review XRY files

MSAB has just launched XRY Viewer.

This new application has been purpose built and designed to help those customers who want something portable, easy to use and that doesn't require any installation permissions or dependencies to work.

The Viewer is less than 2MB and works without needing to be installed onto a Windows OS computer and for the first time it allows users the ability to sort all of the data in chronological order to help generate a timeline.

As modern mobile device extractions just keep getting bigger and bigger these days (32GB is common) - it becomes unrealistic and impractical to print such reports or even navigate PDF export files. Especially with video and multimedia files it makes sense to be able to review and play the files as they were originally intended, in their native format. Viewer makes this possible for a much wider audience than ever before.

Viewer is free to distribute by customers to authorized third parties like prosecutors or intelligence analysts who may need to review XRY files, without having any previous familiarity of using the product.

You can select different both logical and physical extractions together and view combined­ file categories to help sort all the data by a variety of different data types to help understanding quicker than ever.

Devices remotely wiped in police custody

The details about how mobiles were wiped are not clear

All the data on some of the tablets and phones seized as evidence is being wiped out, remotely, while they are in police custody.

Cambridgeshire, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Durham police all told BBC News handsets had been remotely "wiped". And Dorset police said this had happened to six of the seized devices it had in custody, within one year.

The technology used was designed to allow owners to remove sensitive data from their phones if they are stolen.

Asked whether the police felt that the issue had damaged their investigation, the spokeswoman said: "We don't know because we don't know what was on the phone."
