Hacker cracks police force network

Guidance Software, Inc., a private Pasadena, Calif., firm, said in a letter sent out to law enforcement agencies last week that thieves had raided its database sometime in November, stealing credit card numbers and in certain cases information such as addresses and telephone numbers for 3,800 customers.

Guidance makes EnCase, a suite of forensic investigation software that has become the standard tool used by computer crime units of police, insurance companies, banks and private computer forensics specialists.”
