    This is crazy. Does anyone really think that they can't do the exact same thing with "Bit Locker"? I absolutely do not trust Windows to be secure. Anything Microsoft cannot be considered secure at three letter agency levels.

    Same here. I sure hope OpenSource doesn't follow down the same path. If it does, it'll be time to find a new hobby. ;)

    The ingenuity of those people is incredible. Stealing from Microsoft and using their communication platform to communicate.

    Even thieves have the right to privacy, in their use of a "communication platform"!

    Other means must be used to apprehend them. ;)

    There's a big problem: they didn't try to steal from a nice guy.
    You don't rob the Mafia and sell their stuff in their stores.
