Point-and-click forensics tool leaks to Net [securityfocus.com]

Microsoft's point-and-click forensics tool, normally only available to law enforcement agencies, has leaked to the Internet and is available to download on some peer-to-peer networks, according to reports.

The tool, known as the Computer Online Forensic Evidence Extractor, or COFEE, allows non-technical police officers to collect digital evidence by merely inserting a USB device into a computer. The leak follows Microsoft's announcement last month that it was making the tool available to U.S. law enforcement. The company had previously offered it only to international law enforcement agencies.

Several security researchers reported that they had been able to download a program from sources on the Internet that claimed to be the forensics software.
