MOSCOW, December 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

ElcomSoft Co. Ltd. announces the release of Elcomsoft Cloud eXplorer (ECX), a digital forensic tool for acquiring data from Google accounts. Implementing over-the-air acquisition of information collected by the search giant, Elcomsoft Cloud eXplorer provides access to users' search history, contacts, comprehensive Chrome browsing history and page transitions, Google Keep notes, Hangouts messages, as well as pictures stored in the user's Google Photos account.

"It's not about Android," says Vladimir Katalov, ElcomSoft CEO. "Google collects and maintains massive amounts of information from registered customers using the many Google services from PCs and mobile devices. Normally, the information is scattered around the many services offered under the single sign-on roof of Google Account. Out tool pulls the data from all available sources, assembling available information in a single place. Just looking at the amount of data that is available is extremely impressive."

Over-the-air acquisition is available for services such as Google Calendar, Hangouts, Contacts, Photos, YouTube, Google Keep, Dashboard and Location Data. In addition, all search queries performed on all computers and mobile devices while the user was signed in to their Google account, as well as their Chrome browsing history, page transitions, saved logins and passwords are pulled from the cloud. Investigators must supply the correct Google ID and password. Access to the secondary authentication factor is required if two-step authentication is enabled for a given Google account.
