Microsoft Develops COFEE Tool For Police

Microsoft has developed a new tool for law enforcement called COFEE that investigators can use to extract forensic data from computers that may have been used in a crime. Don’t feel bad, with all the GTA talk lately, I thought the headline said “hot coffee” tool too.

The COFEE, which stands for Computer Online Forensic Evidence Extractor, is a USB "thumb drive" that was quietly distributed to a handful of law-enforcement agencies last June. Microsoft General Counsel Brad Smith described its use to the 350 law-enforcement experts attending a company conference Monday.
