SafeGuard Easy has never been hacked.

You may come across message posts that say that the Danish police
hacked SafeGuard Easy. Sorry to say, this is not the case. In fact,
the Danish police sent several machines encrypted with SafeGuard Easy
to a number of data recovery professionals and were unable to find any
one that could decrypt the data on these machines.

So what did the Danish police do?

They guessed a few passwords….by knowing some details about the owners
of these machines they were able to guess passwords like children's
names, birth dates, pets names etc.

So why the big hype, why does this message appear in the newsgroups?

Well, unfortunately due to the nature of the web and the nature of
some businesses and their willingness to go to any length to dominate
a market, misinformation is easily spread. Let's just say that some
companies like to hit below the belt, or at least attempt to.

What does it mean for SafeGuard Easy?

Well, a new customer, for one. You see the Danish police were so
impressed with the security of SafeGuard Easy that they decided to
evaluate it for their internal use
