Sleuths follow digital crime trails

Wednesday, December 29, 2004 (12:10:54)
Kansas City, Mo. — First, they testified that a suspect in a Douglas County murder searched the Internet for terms including "How to murder someone and not get caught." Then they used computer records to find the Kansas woman suspected of strangling a pregnant Missouri woman and cutting her fetus from her womb.

It's been a busy month for the computer sleuths at the Heart of America Regional Computer Forensic Laboratory, a second-floor suite tucked into an upscale office building just north of the Missouri River. Instead of searching for fingerprints and footprints, the detectives who work at this office solve crimes by searching seized hard drives for file activity and Internet history.

UK government to delete millions of emails

Tuesday, December 21, 2004 (07:06:31)
It has led to the downfall of many. Now the UK government is arranging the deletion of millions of e-mails. But is it really as easy as hitting a button on the keyboard? E-mail has a long memory, as former home secretary David Blunkett can confirm. Forced to quit last week after e-mails containing damaging information were discovered, he is the latest in the long line of people to be haunted by cyber mail. It has now emerged that civil servants are being told to destroy millions of e-mails. The government says it is in the cause of good information management, but some people have pointed out that in a fortnight's time, they will become publicly accessible under freedom of information legislation. However, as many have discovered, it is not as easy as hitting the delete key...
