ElcomSoft Phone Breaker 9.40 is out with support for Skype chats, files and metadata

Elcomsoft Phone Breaker 9.40 adds support for Skype chats, media files, contact lists and metadata. The update enables experts to download conversation histories, pictures and files, while the updated Elcomsoft Phone Viewer can display downloaded data as well as metadata for deleted chats and files purged from Skype servers.

Elcomsoft Phone Breaker 9.40 is updated with Skype support. The new build enables experts to download conversation histories, messages, media files, contact lists and metadata directly from the user’s Microsoft Account. In addition to existing data, Elcomsoft Phone Breaker can extract metadata for files and conversation histories deleted within the last 30 days. For chats and media files purged from Skype servers, Elcomsoft Phone Breaker can obtain metadata such as the date and time, size, file name, sender, and chat name. Elcomsoft Phone Viewer was also updated to display Skype data.

Using Elcomsoft Phone Breaker and Elcomsoft Phone Viewer together for accessing Skype data offers forensic experts the convenience of obtaining and analyzing all available Skype data in a matter of minutes. The available information includes Skype conversations including group chats, text messages, as well as any files sent and received by the user.

The tool can extract and display additional metadata for deleted conversations and purged files. The tool extracts all metadata for deleted chats including the date and time of deletion, date and time of sending the last message, the number of chat participants and their Skype IDs. In addition, the tool can extract metadata of files that have been purged from Skype servers after they’ve been deleted and the 30 days have passed. This includes information such as the date and time the file was deleted, the file name and size, the sending contact and the chat name.
