I have added a new tool (Lightgrep) to the current versions page.

Lightbox Technologies has a tool that I have been told about called Lightgrep.  It has been added to the current versions page of the blog.

Lightgrep is, and I quote, "a Perl-compatible regular expression search engine for forensics that's several times faster than EnCase's keyword search."  It looks to be a promising add-on for EnCase!

I look forward to trying it out!
