Assuming that neither the stable nor beta's have stopped using a returnil pagefile, even in RAM mode, consider taking a page from Vista's book and encrypt your pagefile with a strong one-time key. Adressing security concerns in a prior post, coldmoon mentioned an intent to start wiping the file from 2.0.1. Secure wiping takes time, I believe 7 overwrites is the current NSA standard and that still leaves traces. Encryption with a per session key however, is fast and, especially when coupled with a rapid randomization/corruption pass on shut down, provides good privacy. -- In the mean time: where is this file? can it be relocated? if it can't, is it disabled by using the virtual partition option? -can this partition be encrypted? any suggestions about software which could do for the returnil page file or partition, what efs does for Vista's?
