Google Desktop copies company files to Google

By way of Slashdot, this article reports that CIOs at UK companies are up in arms about Google Desktop.

When someone uses the "search across computers" feature of Google Desktop, it copies files from the local computer to Google's servers--usually a breach of security for most companies, who don't want confidential files copied to servers outside the company. Google's popular desktop utility is being banned in many companies because of the security problem.
