    Nice to see Microsoft lending a hand with these things.

    I'm not sure, is this some kind of backdoor ?

    Or is Windows so vulnerable that a backdoor is not even necessary ?

    Supposedly this is for 'live' activity. But COFEE can get past passwords and encryption ? :doubt:

    The problem is there is no way for anyone to verify this claim since the Windows code is closed. Do you think if M$ had provided a backdoor to a 3 letter agency that they would admit it?

    That said, I don't think COFEE has backdoors in it or else we would have heard about it by now since every Deputy Fyfe in America has access to it. Someone would have talked by now. But I still don't trust M$ when it comes to the 3 letter agencies.

    What would the internet be without drama and conspiracy theories.

    The thing is, does COFEE require physical access to a system, or can it be done remotely, from the internet or wireless ? :doubt:

    In the article, the word 'script' is used. Scripts on the internet can be dangerous.

    It wouldn't take much to download it and find out. I found COFEE quite easily as a torrent but don't have anything newer than 2K to try it on.
