Win-XP denounced as terrorism tool

A computer forensics specialist warns that default security features 
in Windows-XP might bring civilization to its knees at the hands of 
pedophiles, tax cheats, and, of course, international terrorists.  

Forensics outfit New Technologies' President, Michael Anderson, a 
former Fed himself, is claiming that the secure file-wipe feature in 
Win-XP Pro is going to "make it impossible for federal agents and law 
enforcement to find and reconstruct digital evidence buried on 
computers, particularly those seized from terrorists," according to 
an article by Network World. [my emphasis]
