Well, they don't think they have jurisdiction over foreign individuals. But they do have jurisdiction over the company holding the data - and quite possibly over the physical server itself (if it is in an american data centre).

HDMI -> DVI conversors are trivial (in fact, Apple ships one of those with Mac Minis, instead of Mini DisplayPort -> DVI).
With some versions of Visual Studio (and the Xbox 360 extensions for VS) Microsoft ships a static analysis tool, which is also very useful in finding potential problems.
For this kind of thing, Israeli/El Al security are always extra cautious (or annoying, depending on which side of the stick you are) with women travelling alone.
