Win-XP security "too good," potential terrorist tool?!

Author: JT Smith

The Register: "A computer forensics specialist warns that default security features in Windows-XP might bring
civilization to its knees at the hands of pedophiles, tax cheats, and, of course, international terrorists.

Forensics outfit New Technologies' President, Michael Anderson, a former Fed himself, is claiming
that the secure file-wipe feature in Win-XP Pro is going to "make it impossible for federal agents and
law enforcement to find and reconstruct digital evidence buried on computers, particularly those
seized from terrorists," according to an article by Network World."
