Dot compost and the danger to your privacy

LinuxJournal: "I pulled out my Linuxcare Bootable Business Card, a disk I
helped develop that I often use when doing forensics of
unknown systems. It's a utility that allows me to quickly and
easily bypass the operating system and retrieve data, a task
critical for performing data recovery of corrupted systems or for
performing forensic analysis of systems that have been
compromised by intruders. Within 45 seconds I was looking at
the data on the computer's hard drive, and what I saw shocked
me. It turns out that the first computer I bought used to be the
main e-mail server for a highly visible startup."
