Private data purchased on eBay
Kessler International purchased hard drives from the popular auction site over a six month period and found that many of the drives were not properly wiped. Computerworld has the story:
A New York computer forensics firm said that 40 of 100 hard disk drives it recently purchased in bulk orders on eBay contained personal information, including corporate financial data, DNS server information, and personal e-mail and photos.
As mentioned in a previous post, the new Kanguru Hard Drive Duplicator SATA can securely wipe multiple hard drives with a single push of the button.
