    Couple of links with some implications:

    No it may not be an immediate problem, but that 'thin end..' keeps poking in.

    Hello,

    Well, after reading the article, if you don't use Vista, Google Deskto Search or Word, then there's no reason why there should be any leak.

    Besides, I thought encryption was mainly against theft ... at least, for most of us.

    Mrk

    Hello,

    Well yea, "deskto" is hard to get, you're more likely to have "desktop" :)

    But if you're into ultra-paranoid setups, I can hardly see why you'd be using any of the three mentioned... kind of self-defeating.
