If you thought the security features developed by Microsoft were intended to keep your private data private in the face of adversity, think again: according to a report in the Seattle Times the software giant is offering investigatory agencies a device capable of bypassing pretty much every security measure currently built into its Windows operating system.

The COFEE – a somewhat laboured acronym for Computer Online Forensic Evidence Extractor – is a USB mass-storage device which started trials at law enforcement agencies across the US last June. Containing a toolkit of approximately a hundred and fifty commands, the software included on the drive is capable of decrypting passwords, copying the Internet history log, and accessing files owned by any user on the computer.

BTW Vista Service Pack 1 is available for download from Microsoft.
