THE WORLD LOOKING AT MY CASE - SEC2CRIME
“Finally, another example of poor manipulation of digital evidence is that of the Uruguayan cybersecurity specialist Daniel Alberto Hill, who was arrested and placed in pretrial detention as a result of an investigation that borders on the ridiculous given that the investigators in the case when they raided his home, Under the pretext of investigating a crime of illegitimate access to a restricted-access computer system, they seized two coins that each represented one bitcoin.”
“….and they did so thinking that they really were the physical representation of the well-known cryptocurrencies, since they were even judicially seized together to material that the cybersecurity expert used for his daily investigative work.
There are no excuses for the kind of treatment this evidence receives. Basically because digital evidence must be supported in the same format, in digits, not on paper. Everything that is seen can be manipulated in multiple ways, something that no notary could identify with the naked eye.”
