Could this make things worse?

With the ability to identify materials and to see in higher resolution, might such a device make it easier to reverse engineer and counterfeit a device?

If nothing else, counterfeiters could be able to make their devices appear more like the originals on this machine.

Indeed, there's a terrific French film Le Corbeau (1943) directed by the great Henri-Georges Clouzot, best known for Diabolique and The Wages of Fear.  Le Corbeau involves an anonymous poison-pen writer who shrouds a French town with fear.  It was banned by both the occupying Nazis and by the Free French.

I noticed chez Wiktionary that corbeaux also referred to those who collected the corpses of people who had died of the plague.

I found name rather funny for french speaking people.
Raven, the bird, in french is "corbeau"
Bit same "corbeau" word is used (rater slangish, I reckon) for anonymous delator.
