Bahh, more spyware ;-)
Sound's dodgy to me, esp if they are trapping stuff before it's written to
disk.  They might tart scanning net traffic next - who knows ?

Subject: [windows2000] OT: Google Desktop Security Breach
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.
