AbstractThis paper uses a scenario-based, role-play experiment based on the usage of QR codes to detect how mobile users respond to social engineering attacks conducted via mobile devices. The results of this experiment outline a guided mobile phone forensics investigation method that could facilitate the work of digital forensics investigators while analyzing the data from mobile devices. The behavioral response of users could be impacted by several aspects, such as impulsivity, smartphone usage and security, or simply awareness that QR codes could contain malware. The findings indicate that the impulsivity of users is one of the key areas that determines the common mistakes of mobile device users. As a result, an investigative framework for mobile phone forensics is proposed based on the impulsivity and common mistakes of mobile device users. It could help the forensics investigators by potentially shortening the time spent on investigation of possible breach scenarios.
