Kid kidnaps himself to buy a Wii

Kid kidnaps himself to buy a WiiApparently it’s a true story, even though it sounds more like a comedy movie. A kid named Yang from China wasn’t to happy that his parents refused to buy him a Wii. So he found a couple of lowlife friends and faked his own kidnapping.

The ransom they demanded was $1,400 USD. The geniuses got nabbed trying to withdraw it from an ATM machine. Yang’s cut of the money would have bought him a Wii for sure, although I’m certain it would have been suspicious that he suddenly has a Wii right after.

Microsoft COFEE security key extracts criminal data from PCsMicrosoft has revealed some interesting info. Since June 2007, multiple law enforcement agencies have been using a forensic device it has developed that can bypass security on a Windows-powered machine and extract data for use in criminal investigations.

It’s named COFEE, for Computer Online Forensic Evidence Extractor. The device is a USB thumb-drive armed with 150 “commands” that can do all sorts of things like decrypt passwords, display internet activity, and uncover all data stored on the computer. The most important aspect is that it can do all of this on-site, instead of having to remove the machine during a search or raid and send it to a lab.
