An anonymous reader writes to tell us that a recent announcement, and subsequent inactivation of all copies of DECAF, has announced that the DECAF project was nothing more than a “stunt to raise awareness for security and the need for better forensic tools.” Originally DECAF was billed as a tool to stop Microsoft’s forensic tool “COFEE” and was covered here earlier this week. In addition to their message of security the authors somehow manage to interject a discussion about religion so who knows what the real goal was.
