Whole Disk Encryption Insecure

Hmm... well this is kind of a blow for the security departments that have been relying on this. My "work" (notice the parentheses) laptop has whole disk encryption and it's terrible. For some reason it usually (like 4 out of 5 times) does not ask me for my password anymore (and it really does seem random) and it takes noticeably longer to do anything on the machine (which is why I barely use it and didn't even take it with me this trip). Now it's revealed that it apparently doesn't even really protect anything!

So much for "corporate security".
