+ - Hushmail Gives Email Data to Feds->

Submitted by

oostevo writes "According to Wired, Hushmail, who claim that "not even a Hushmail employee with access to our servers can read your encrypted e-mail, since each message is uniquely encoded before it leaves your computer" have given unencrypted email to investigators following a court order from a Canadian court in a steroid-related investigation.

In Hushmail's defense, however, it would seem that they were compelled to exploit a security vulnerability to steal user's passphrases and decrypt their mail. They also have been very frank in discussing the situation and their response [pdf link]."
