Google desktop search beta is indexing AND displaying results from password 
protected encrypted files without the need for a password:



Some comments on this...this means that if someone had access to your computer 
they could theoretically just install the google desktop and access your 
encrypted files...further I wonder if Network shares can get indexed and if so 
this would open a whole new can of worms.
