Is your data secure?

Users with sensitive data might find it comforting to use disk encryption in order to prevent it to fall in the wrong hands, especially when this data is stored on a laptop.

Hovewer, a new research shows that it might be relatively simple to recover the encryption keys for at least three popular products (BitLocker, from Windows Vista; FileVault, from Mac OS X; dm-crypt for Linux), thus defeating this kind of protection.

Be warned.
