MRU artifacts, or Most Recently Used are a variety of artifacts tracked by modern Windows operating systems that provide crucial details regarding the user’s interaction with files, folders, and programs that may have been executed using the Windows Run utility. This is fortunate for examiners, because profiling user activity is something digital forensic examiners are often tasked with to corroborate what we believe happened on a computer.

As examiners, we often find ourselves wanting to know if a program was executed on a system, when it was executed on a system, or if a program or file ever existed on a system.
Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR), is often used to speak about both the digital forensics and incident response fields—related but separate areas. Let’s delve into what both digital forensics and incident response are and why they are often grouped together.
Digital forensics tools have improved a lot in the past several years. With these advances, the digital forensics community now has many tool options for each phase of an investigation.
Processing evidence sources that contain terabytes of data and hundreds of thousands of artifacts is now a common and sometimes time-consuming process. Magnet AXIOM and Magnet AXIOM Cyber offer you more control over evidence processing by offering the option to process evidence with parsing-only and post-process carving—allowing you to apply the appropriate collection method for the investigation at hand.
Only two months after the release Magnet AXIOM Cyber 6.0, we’ve delivered several new and exciting features in Magnet AXIOM Cyber 6.2, including:
Magnet AXIOM 6.2 is now available, which adds a new Handwriting Classifier in Magnet.AI and improved viewing experiences for key iOS apps, in addition to several new UX enhancements to help you work investigations even easier and faster.
How can we possibly keep up against cybersecurity threats? The instances of cybersecurity threats targeting businesses continue to grow at an alarming rate—with cyberattack attempts on corporate networks increasing by 50% per week compared to last year. Not to mention the evolution in the complexity and sophistication of these threats.
With AXIOM Cyber you can now get even more Google Drive Activity data from Google Workspace thanks to the ability to collect a record of user activity on a Google Drive account.
