Software hide and seek

Friday, August 12, 2005 (06:32:51)
Delete isn't enough anymore. Consider the case of Robert Johnson, the former Newsday publisher who, prosecutors allege, used a software program called Evidence Eliminator to rid his computers of CP. Pressing ''delete'' makes files invisible, perhaps, but it doesn't make them gone. Making files gone has become a booming industry unto itself. Sales of Evidence Eliminator run in the millions of dollars each year, says Andrew Churchill, managing director of Robin Hood Software of Britain - and it's just one of more than a dozen ''file shredder'' or ''anti-forensic'' products on the market...

UK police want new computer powers

Wednesday, August 03, 2005 (15:21:47)
The UK Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) has called for new powers to allow police to tackle rogue websites, and make withholding encryption keys a criminal offence. The new proposals are buried inside a long and sometimes controversial list of powers the influential body would like the government to consider enacting through legislation in the light of the special demands posed by terrorist investigations...
