I'm at RSA and one of the things I'm doing is visiting various booths, talking to customers, etc. I'll be posting about a number of things over the next few days but when I saw this I started to laugh...
The background for this is the "cooled RAM attack" which you may have read about:
The new attacks exploit the fact that information stored in a computer’s temporary working memory, or RAM, does not disappear immediately when a computer is shut off or when the memory chip is taken from the machine, as is commonly thought. Under normal circumstances, the data gradually decays over a period of several seconds to a minute. The process can be slowed considerably using simple techniques to cool the chips to low temperatures.
Fortunately, the folks from SecureDoc and Seagate have solved this problem through software. I solved it without spending a nickel with the additional benefit of increasing both my physical fitness and cardiovascular system:
If I happen to see someone coming at me (or my laptop), towing a vat of liquid nitrogen I run away, quickly.
If there was an award for the stupidest marketing campaign I'd nominate this one.Technorati Tags:
