Comment Lets you retrieve files? (Score 2, Insightful) 82

So, what this seems like is it lets you connect to your stolen computer to retrieve the files. A sort of hidden, unprotected FTP server on your computer. Couldn't this possibly be used by a hacker to steal your files remotely? How does the computer know it has been stolen, and how does it identify the rightful user? And how can you ensure that someone doesn't get your files before you do?

Seems like a potentially dangerous utility, even worse than the Sony rootkit.
