An anonymous reader writes “Two developers have created ‘Detect and Eliminate Computer Assisted Forensics‘ (DECAF). The tool tries to stop Microsoft’s Computer Online Forensic Evidence Extractor (COFEE), which helps law enforcement officials grab data from password-protected or encrypted sources. After COFEE was leaked to the Web, Microsoft issued takedown notices to sites hosting the software.” The article notes that DECAF is not open source, so you aren’t really going to know for sure what it will do to your computer.
