I've a vague recollection of something on the news this morning or maybe it was last night, about a laptop being handed in with an encrypted disk in it.. Have heard nothing about this since.. Has anybody got any "gen" on it?

there is a long queue of various gov't departments trying to find out if its one of theirs.

could be anybodies
The laptop I use for work has the HDD encrypte using PGP.
Not that there is anything worth stealing on it anyway. :0)

I think this was MOD property. I would hazard a guess it is probably one of the ones lost by the RN officer. Stolen from a car if I remember correctly.

Thanks for that information mark2. Looks like whoever stole it did so to sell it on.

The laptop was sold on EBAY and is covered in a NEWS article on this site
