how to decrypt iphone text messages database

hi all,

I have and read and tried multiple solutions how to open this 3d0d7e5fb2ce288813306e4d4636395e047a3d28  file in an open source SQLite editor but I am getting an error that is not a valid SQLite database.

Does anybody know how to decrypt it ?

Instead of using SQLite, try "Iphone backup extractor".  Should work if the entire iPhone backup is intact (that is, you don't have JUST the SMS database, but have the entire backup), as long as the backup isn't encrypted with a password.

You can try it for free.

the antivirus alarmed me that it may contain virus. Not sure if it is a false positive or now.
any other ideas?

That would be a false alarm.

I think it's irrelevant.

Reincubate.com is a site that is being used to host the iphonebackupextractor executable.  

It is not the company that makes iphonebackupextractor.  Reincubate also hosts files from numerous other companies.  They host files for LOTS of companies.  Perhaps some of those other companies are posting infected files, which is why reincubate.com is coming up as a "malware site" when you search on virustotal.  But Virustotal's complaint is about reincubate.com, not about iphonebackupextractor itself.

When I download the iphonebackupextractor executable, and check it with malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials, it comes up clean.

That's the problem with things like Virustotal that evaluate SITES, rather than FILES, when sites (like dropbox, yousendit, etc.) are used to host files from many different sources.  If one source has a problem, then the entire site is tarred by a bad brush.
