Abstract

Forensics is the application of sciences that help to seek out, examine, and answer questions about certain characteristics. For example, forensic toxicology helps us understand certain drug interactions, whereas forensics evidence helps us understand evidence that is uncovered at a crime scene. Since computers are now often used in criminal activity, a forensic branch of science has been created termed computer forensics. Unfortunately, unlike other forensics sciences, the complexity, legality, and even the nature of computer forensics may make it more vulnerable to errors.
