Track information about web sites including URLs and domains
Why are certain websites dangerous?
People use websites for several reasons. But not all websites are safe. Some websites trick people into entering their card details and sensitive information to steal money, while others attempt to hack phones and computers by sending malicious links to people and encouraging them to click on a link to steal data from them. Some websites upload sensitive content like child sexual abuse material (CSAM). All of these websites should be reported and taken care of.
Investigators dealing with cybercrimes and child abuse regularly encounter websites that publish harmful content and are a threat to society. These websites must be taken down and tracked to avoid further consequences.
Not just cybercrime and child abuse, other crimes can also have websites and web pages linked to them as a source of evidence or information. Therefore, it is better to keep a record of such websites, and track, and follow up on them to avoid neglect of evidence, and over time, loss of data.
What role do websites play in investigations?
A website helps one in finding a domain and its owner, and IP address. Hubstream has a separate entity for websites to help investigative teams record the details of a website, its domain, and its URL in order to track them. Tracking of the websites results in discoveries that may act as solid evidence.
Digital evidence can be found anywhere on a phone, tablet, computer, hard drives, flash drives, smart TVs, and cameras as well as public resources such as social media platforms, and cloud service providers. This kind of evidence needs to be stored safely and kept accessible to aid investigators.
Sometimes websites could be a common link that connects several people. To find that, it is important to have a proper system and record. Hubstream helps teams find such links and represent them visually as network charts for easy and quick understanding. One can also link multiple types of data together in one place and monitor them.
