Win2K Encrypted File System

This report details how insecure the Windows 2000 Encrypted File System has turned out to be. Essentially to gain access to an encrypted volume you install a parallel version of Windows 2000, delete the user database and log in as Administrator. The system then happily decrypts the entire file system for you. Once again Microsoft demonstrates that they just don't get it when it comes to security.
