So when will some honest cop place this tool set on the web so that it can be examined by people who can actually test & vet it properly?
Interpol plans to distribute a Microsoft DIY computer forensics tool to its 187 member countries under an agreement announced Wednesday. Cofee, short for Computer Online Forensic Evidence Extractor, is a thumb drive containing more than 150 investigative applications police can use to collect digital evidence at crime scenes. …

Not all MS products only work with MS, you know maybe Windows may be able to connect to Novell one day, or Unix, maybe even a printer or two....who knows....
I guess it's pointless me using Bitlocker any more. With Vista 64 on a Core i7 with 8 GB Ram and fast RAID 0 disks performance was excellent. Other products might be "compatible" with 64 vbit vista but not native 64 bit. I had no choice on the 64 bit Vista, it's all Dell ship/support with Core i7 systems.
I'm sure some office somewhere in the world is going to lose his USB key with all this neat software on it. Unless there is access control within the toolset, it'll be on the web before the end of the year !
Let's face it, their systems are plagued by security holes.
I'd be more surprised if they *weren't* relying on secret backdoors built into windows. Considering that it *only* works on Windows, all the evidence points that way.
Seriousness aside though.
Microsoft Security & Security Forces : which are the most incompetent?
Microsoft allow hackers to steal your sensitive data. The security forces merely leave theirs lying around on trains. I'm not surprised they've teamed up.
Now perhaps the security forces can leave *your* sensitive data lying around on trains!
Depends what you mean by 'works'. If you mean 'secretly injecting and subsequently discovering incriminating evidence of a number of crimes including proving the owner to be both Lord Lucan and Jack the Ripper onto any non-Windows machine', then yes, it works...
