Re: [Full-disclosure] FBI Says Data on VA Laptop Not Accessed



The FBI, in a statement from its Baltimore field office, said a
preliminary review of the equipment by its computer forensic teams
"has determined that the data base remains intact and has not been
accessed since it was stolen." More tests were planned, however.

Didn't the original "wanted" notice for this hardware specifically mention an external (USB) drive?

Gee .. 'mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/sda1 /mnt/goodies'

How are their "forensic" people going to determine if *that* happened?

Their argument about "a real crook wouldn't return the hardware" .. well, why not? .. $50,000 to buy that fancy ID printer off eBay to get yourself started.
