Decaf COFEE put me to sleep

Decaf[1] is the hackers reply to Microsoft’s COFEE tool set. Once again creating a tool to combat a set of tools as old as Sysinternals is nothing new or surprising. If it did not happen we would have been surprised.

Unfortunately (and thank god) systems are open and when they are closed (-source) people can still reverse-engineer and break them. This is the nature of the system, be that a PC, Apple, hardware, software or a mobile phone.

In other news an Xbox 360 thief was caught when the original user’s account automatically signed in [2]. Proving that with some effort it is possible to track and catch thieves that keep and connect Internet-capable systems. Hear that UK!

    Thanks for sharing information. its really nice and mean full. I want to write more but these days I am doing preparation of different online certifications and I found cisco training guide is the best helping source which is providing 100% authentic material. I also spend my extra time in surfing internet, listening music and playing games. After my exams I would like to join your group.
