Having watched the media storm over the iPhone location database erupt in the last few days, I wonder why I didn’t release this before. First credit should go to Chris Vance and Nathan Broslawsky who discovered this in Sept 2010 – they were extremely helpful when I contacted them for advice in a forensics case. We all kept quiet in the interests of “responsible disclosure” – ah well.
Now its all out in the public domain, I release the hack script which converts an iPhone database into a Google Earth KML map.
There are lots of other useful tricks for mobile forensics!
