    Yeah, a pretty good discussion of the coldboot attack. The hotplug technique is pretty sneaky too.

    I'll tell ya, they need some spam filtering on that maillist...... there are loads of government bait like "preteen lolitas links", its all they need nowadays to confiscate your computer.

      Those aren't spam but cleverly concealed secret plans of world domination! Acme::Steganography::Text::Spam anyone? With the spam/ham ratio continuing to soar, one could hide any amount of text, and disseminate with total deniability for the recipient. Hmm...;-)


      All dogma is stupid.
        Yeah....all those stenographied secrets just flying around, and me sitting here unaware, like a babe in the woods. :-) Come to think of it, I could go for a "lolita in the woods". :-)
