Passware Kit Forensic Decrypts TrueCrypt Hard Disks in Minutes

Passware Inc., a provider of password recovery, decryption, and evidence discovery software for computer forensics, announced that the latest version of its flagship product, Passware Kit Forensic, has become the first commercially available software to break TrueCrypt hard drive encryption without applying a time-consuming brute-force attack. It was also the first product to decrypt BitLocker drives.

Passware has enhanced Passware Kit Forensic to allow for memory acquisition of a seized computer over FireWire port, even if the computer is locked
Interesting how FireWire is "versatile"

Yup - given the way DRAM remnancy attacks work, once the FDE keys are in RAM they'll stay there until they're removed or there's no more power to the chips. It's the same sort of attack used against Bitlocker, and the same sorts of mitigations are likely to apply.
