I still disagree with you.
When I decommission a hard drive, best practices state you wipe the entire hard drive.
You don't go and delete specific files like exchanges
In fact the way BleachBit deletes data, even though recovery of emails on these drives would be impossible, the windows SAM file remains undeleted and in perfect operating condition along with the entire OS.
I could easily extract password hashes from those untouched files and brute force them.
There could be many other files left littered around the HD that would provide or point to other authentication credentials, not to mention all the saved passwords in the windows password store and all the applications that do it on their own.
No, wiping the entire hard drive with something like DBAN is the only way to properly decommission a hard drive if you are concerned it may leave your possession (selling or disposal doesn't matter)
BleachBit is absolutely nothing like a paper shredder. It is more like using a black marker to redact lines printed on those papers and then leaving the entire stack of paper out so anyone can still read the rest and see there is text redacted.
Shredding the whole paper would plausibly be proper disposal. Marking out lines while keeping the paper is not.
and a ton more anniversaries! Just look at how many times we can celebrate it having left the solar system!
They arrested this guy because he had a server located somewhere in the USA. The same way they went after Kim Dotcom.
KAT had all their servers located in Canada-America and Sweden-America, while Kim Dotcom had his servers located in America-America.
While it's been obvious from legal history over the past couple years that Canada and Sweden operate under American law only now, many people are not yet used to that and incorrectly assume those are other countries with their own laws.
That confusion is what lead the parent poster to ask their question. It's just your explanation is equally as confusing of an explanation as it implies the servers were located within the old traditional US borders when that is obviously an incorrect statement.
Instead you should have explained that the servers located in Canada are fully held under US law as if they were located somewhere in the USA.
Sorry I missed your Query. Yes the NSA, the poorly named "National Security Agency".
Where to even begin. First of all, they spy on us, and when unable to do so legally, farm it out to external resources who can. This is a clear violation of privacy rights, but more than that, has a chilling effect on free speech.
They know about software flaws that put us at risk to abuse by third parties, yet keep those hidden so that people like them can abuse those flaws to gain unauthorized access to private information and infrastructure.
They are the enemies of any person who cares about liberty and the abuse of power by individuals with deep pockets.
After watching the video, it reminded me of other things crashing very, very slowly. Though this one wasn't quite as entertaining.
A "failure" here includes an app that crashes. In your case you're saying the touch screen has failed to work, 4 times in a row, and somehow you know it's about to be 5 times.
The chance of a failure involving the touchscreen is statistically (from the report you didn't read) 3%. Raising 0.03 to the fifth power gives a failure rate of 0.0000000243.
Still going with Occam.
Well, literally hundreds of millions of people (per year) buy iPhones (last 12 months was 215 million) and don't have this problem.
I could see you getting a bad phone - shit happens. I could (just about) see you getting *two* bad phones out of two. There is no way I'd buy that you got three successive phones that failed in the same way, as for five ? Well, I'll be charitable and say you must be the unluckiest person on the planet. Is your name Brian by any chance ?
For reference: "In line with the firm’s fourth-quarter report, a study that analyzed smartphone failures during the first quarter of 2016 determined that Android devices cause far more problems for their owners than iPhones. According to Blancco Technology Group’s new data, 44% of Android phones experienced failures between January and March of this year, compared to 25% of iPhones"
Occam's razor says I still think you don't look after the phone, assuming you're telling the truth. Sorry.
