More Than Meets the Eye - Information Security Magazine
"You're confident a trusted employee can't steal research information on your company's
new anti-cancer drug or plans for its next acquisition. Physical and logical controls

family vacation photo he emailed to his "cousin"? Steganography has just bypassed

fail to crack July 11 suspects’ mail - Daily News & Analysis
"Investigators have not been able to crack the contents of at least 35 email accounts

July 11 blasts by their Lashkar-e-Tayiba bosses in Pakistan. Sources said the instructions,

a shocking conclusion or written off as sensationalist conspiracy theory. We should,

the mafia and anyone else with something to hide. New steganography software gives
them an easy, highly secure way to hide it."
