Cops worried that Windows 7 encryption may be too good

Posted on Friday, October 23 2009 @ 02:31:22 CEST by

FUD Zilla reports Australian cops are worried that Windows 7's encryption software will make their job harder:
Queensland coppers fear criminals will use high-tech encryption software on Microsoft's new Windows 7 to hide porn and files deep within computer networks. Detective Superintendent Brian Hay from Queensland's Fraud and Corporate Crime Group is has told AP that he is worried that the new operating system will hamper police efforts to uncover criminal evidence.

Recently Gold Coast police failed to break the encryption on a peeping Tom's computer files which they fear might have lead Surfers Paradise man Rohan Wyllie, 39, to get a stiffer penalty than the one he ended up with. Wyllie admitted to spying on his flatmates through a network of peepholes and cameras wired throughout his apartment however he refused to hand over the encryption code on his home computer and coppers could not view the illegal footage.
