I am sure some of these have been 'liberated', duplicated, and are now in criminal hands.  So now all the criminals need is a hour or so with your laptop and they own you.
And these are software tools.  Wonder how many of them are now parts of the worms and viruses running around the net.

COFEE was leaked years ago anyway - it doesn't contain anything ultra-secret and there's already tools released designed to prevent its use (amusingly named DECAF). 
I've not really got any interest in either past the usual "they build it, it leaks, it's cracked/ripped/countered" story but the fact remains that nothing law-enforcement agencies (other than the intelligence services) are routinely provided with is likely to contain anything vastly different or more capable from software that already exists in the public-domain - for obvious reasons.
