The Spyware & Malware Threat & How Forensic Analysis Can Change the Playing Field

If you suspect that spyware or malware has potentially given an attacker access to all the data on your device, NSI Global’s Digital Forensic Unit’s spyware forensics and analysis service should be called immediately. This is because, alarmingly, spyware and malware, including zero-day attacks (attacks that have been designed not to be detected by current anti-virus tools) are easily purchased online now. As a result, they are a major threat to people and organisations’ privacies. With our spyware and malware detection, we can find the offending software and identify how it was installed, such as through an infected image or file that is sent to the device via Bluetooth, email or as a message, or by an infected link that is sent via SMS.

A device that is used as a tracking or eavesdropping tool without the express or implied knowledge of the user/owner of the device is in breach of numerous Australian State and Federal, Privacy Acts, Telecommunications Interception Acts, and Surveillance Devices Acts. However, these illegal acts can be difficult to detect.

As spyware private investigators, NSI Global’s Digital Forensic Unit utilises specialised restricted access equipment to conduct a Digital Forensic Spyware and Malware Analysis. Our specialists forensically analyse the behaviour of suspected devices, with a special interest in detecting spyware on mobile phones. Using our spyware forensic analysis methods, we can identify zero-day attacks, malware or spyware that may be installed on your device.

For a more comprehensive counter surveillance approach, we also have digital forensic experts who can retrieve data that has been deleted as a result of spyware or malware. We also conduct detailed TSCM bug sweeps to ensure that your premises are not bugged, keeping your private discussions private. Using a combination of these services, our risk advisory team can help you identify and protect security weaknesses, preventing future attacks and your organisation being compromised.

Your Private Data Is At Risk to Spyware & Malware

Mobile Phone Spyware

Communication through GSM, Facebook, WhatsApp, Skype, Viber, Line, Facetime, Duo, Telegram, Signal, WeChat, Instagram, Tinder and more can be recorded and intercepted.


Messages sent through text, iMessage, Facebook, WhatsApp, Skype, Viber, Line, Facetime, Duo, Telegram, Signal, QQ, WeChat, Instagram, Tinder and more can be recorded and intercepted by spyware for mobile phones.

Online Banking

Spyware and malware can access your banking passwords and two-factor authentication. It can also remote access your accounts and transfer funds from your accounts.

24 Hour Location Tracking

Your movements can be tracked and displayed on maps with timestamps and GPS, including Google Maps, Apple Maps, Waze. They may use cell towers and geo-fencing to achieve this.

Remotely Control Device

With access to your device through spyware or malware, attackers can remotely delete any data, upload incriminating files, uninstall and deactivate software, activate microphone and camera recording, disable security settings, and more.

Access General Device Data

As well as controlling your device, attackers can access your device’s address book, call logs, photos, videos, audio, installed applications, network connections, browser activity, passwords and more.

Trust NSI Global's Specialist Digital Forensic Services Over High-Risk General Data Recovery & Detection Software

If data has been deleted from your device as a result of spyware or malware, do not use general data recovery software. For the best possible chance of retrieving your data, it is critical you use our advanced and secure services.

Critical Information To Consider For Crucial Data

Our Malware Analysis & Forensic Investigations Have Been Uncovering Hidden Spyware, Malware & Zero-Day Exploits for Over 20 Years

As experienced malware and spyware forensic investigators, our team have been using industry-leading technology and methods to detect and counter malware and spyware for decades.

As part of our spyware and malware investigation, we can provide evidence as to whether an exploit is present or has been previously deleted from the device. We can also investigate how the software entered the device. For instance, spyware trackers for mobile phones can be installed via a missed WhatsApp call or an infected link in a message.

These types of software allow a third party to surveil and track the use of your device and/or provide remote access to the device itself and any private data on its memory.

If our digital forensic experts detect spyware, malware or zero-day, we can provide detailed digital forensic reports that are cryptographically hashed in order to be allowed where applicable into evidence. We can also consult with your lawyers and barristers, and can stand as expert witnesses in a court of law.

Additionally, we offer a range of other investigatory services. We can conduct corporate investigations to address a range of issues including fraud. Similarly, we can assist with helping you make informed decisions with our due diligence investigation service.
