Microsoft officially confirmed that their forensics investigators tool, labeled Computer Online Forensic Evidence Extractor (COFEE) has been leaked and is available for download on BitTorrent trackers and warez websites: “We have confirmed that unauthorized and modified versions of Microsoft’s COFEE tool have been improperly posted to bit torrent networks for public download.
