+ - Internet Provider Releases "Deleted" Files to Authorities->

Submitted by KingofSpades
KingofSpades (874684) writes "French daily "Le Parisien" reports that a French Internet Provider has provided copies of personal files to the police after they had been "deleted" by their author — who happens to be missing and is suspected of having murdered his wife and four children. It appears that his online diary was stored on the provider's ("Free") cloud... and recovered from backups. This brings interesting implications about the privacy of cloud data and of the meaning of the word "delete". It relates to the discussion on Slashdot after the recent article about what Facebook sends to the police after a subpoena."
