Microsoft kills COFEE download

,----[ Quote ]
| According to SFGate, thousands of copies 
| have already been downloaded, so 
| Microsoft's COFEE software is pretty much 
| public now.



What Windows Autorun Has Wrought

,----[ Quote ]
| A new report by Microsoft shows that the two
| most prevalent threats to Windows PCs in the
| first half of 2009 were malicious programs
| that have been aided mightily in their spread
| by a decision by Microsoft to allow the
| contents of removable media -- such as USB
| thumb drives -- to load automatically when
| inserted into Windows machines.
| In its latest "Security Intelligence Report,"
| Microsoft counted the number of threats
| detected by its anti-malware desktop
| products, and found that the Conficker worm,
| along with a Trojan horse program called
| Taterf which steals passwords and license
| keys for popular computer games, were
| detected on 5.21 million and 4.91 million
| Windows computers, respectively.


Microsoft COFEE, Some of the Most Illegal Software You Can Pirate

,----[ Quote ]
| Apparently Microsoft's COFEE software that
| helps law enforcement grab data from password
| protected or encrypted sources is leaking all
| over the internet. So not only can you steal
| the software, but break the law by using it
| too.

| It was one of the most sought after
| applications on the Internet until it was
| leaked earlier today. And now that itâs out
| thereâand it is all over the place, easily
| findable by anyone able to use a search
| engineâwe can all move on with our lives.
| Yes, Microsoft COFEE, the law enforcement
| tool that mystified so many of us (including
| Gizmodo~! and Ars Technica~!), is now
| available to download. If only there were a
| âbayâ of some sort where, I donât know,
| pirates hang outâ
