Digital Detectives Dig Through Data Deluge

What you do on your computer stays on your computer.

 That may seem obvious, but a document in a new FBI terrorism caseprovides fascinating reminders of just how much information government agents can mine from your computer and other electronics, revealing cyber secrets you thought you'd long ago deleted.

 Jamshid Muhtorov is a refugee from Uzbekistan who was living in Aurora, Colo., until his arrest on Jan. 21. The FBI began investigating Muhtorov last year for his support of the Islamic Jihad Union. The group is designated a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. government and has claimed responsibility for multiple attacks on coalition forces in Afghanistan.
