* MS joins cybercrimefighting efforts

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft has word on Microsoft's teaming up with cybercrime police by offering specialized data mining applications from some of their version tracking software.

"We are looking at making our internal tools available to law enforcement agencies," Stone said. "I'm not talking about commercial shrink-wrapped products that we would put out onto the market. I am talking about very specialized bits of technology, like artificial intelligence and data mining, that would be safe in the hands of extremely competent individuals".
Stone said the tools were originally used to help Microsoft programmers analyze code as their software was being developed. They are now being transformed into specialist tools to assist in the law enforcement effort.
It's an interesting experiment; one wonders how they're going to avoid tripping over the same privacy concerns that the FBI's data mining projects continually run into.
