The Freak series:

We are trying to develop some standalone forensic programs for various computer applications. These programs will be later joined together to make a single feature full forensic framework capable of analysing various computer applications. Currently the following programs have been developed but please keep this in mind that they are still in beta:


The program works with Python 2.6 upto 3.x Supported Operating Systems:

  • Windows
  • Linux
  • Mac OS X


  • Use optparse to get input
  • further simplify the code
  • Make a more usable API
  • Allow the export of data in csv form


You can contribute by adding any functionality from the TODO list and sending a pull request. We will take a look at your code and merge your changes.
