Helix V2.0 released

Helix 2.0 has been released.  Helix is a collection of various tools for electronic forensics.  Just like on TV, you can use this to find all kinds of information on a computer.  Some of the useful tools added were Winlockpwn a tool for breaking windows security, Volitility which processes data out of the raw memory, and several other tools that are beyond our comprehension.

You’ve undoubtedly noticed that the title says Helix V2.0, but the image and header of the Helix site say 3.  We have no idea why. Look at the download info to see that it says V2.0.

  1. humm the servers must be crowded. download is going at only 11.5kb/s. or its just a problem at my end anyone can confirm?

  2. Helix is a trademarked name, so they used Helix3. The 3 refers to the three areas in which it is marketed (under the name in the image). IR, e-Discovery, and forensics.

  3. hmm, seems like the download link autoredirects to different mirrors; if you get a slow connection try again; i’ve gotten anywhere from 250kbps to 1.2kbps and even one missing version on an indiana server

  4. looks like the download server crashed. I get a file not found error when I click on the link, on here and on helix’s site.

  5. Wow, only $275 for a “Professionally pressed Helix Incident Response, Electronic Discovery, Live Forensics CDROM. One bound Manual and an official Black Helix T-Shirt.”

    What a rip.

  6. “What a rip.”

    Like how you can pay for OpenBSD CD’s, even though they can be D/L’d free. Sometimes it’s nice to support the project and the efforts behind it too ya know.

    But $275 is a might steep in my opinion too…

  7. This is Awesome software. Drew does all this for no charge (if you download) on his spare time. if you are lazy enough to want to get the pressed CD you can pay the price. This CD has saved my bacon in investigations a couple of times. If you thing the $275 is steep but want to help support the efforts, check the forums out and you can find out you can help.

  8. 380 kbytes on wifi in my university.

    The previous version saved my life (and the one of some of my friends).

    $275 is a little bit expensive I think, but I think I would ask people I help with it to donate for this project.

  9. so what maybe they liked the site so much they wanted theirs to look like that too. Not everyone has time to do things from scratch

  10. “I personaly would never trust a site “company” that cant even make their own site.”

    yeah, cuz nobody ever uses the same template as someone else. Don’t they self-destruct or something after the first use?
