Submission + - Stealing Your Vacation: Memories of a media card

twistedmoney99 writes: Anyone who has upgraded their digital camera probably has a few older incompatible media cards lying around — so why not post them on Ebay? Well if you do, be sure to properly wipe them because the digital voyeurs are watching. Seth Fogie at InformIT.com purchased a bunch of used cards from Ebay and found recoverable data on most of them. Using the freely available PhotoRec, he was able to extract pictures, movies, and more from apparently formatted cards. The picture is clear — wipe anything that can store digital data before getting rid of it.

Of course there's no reason for it, it's just our policy.
