Photocopiers – a Gold Mine for Identity Thieves.

I just read an interesting article about office photocopiers. All the larger models made post-2002 have hard drives inside them. Each time you copy a document it saves a copy to the internal hard drive.

Researchers were able to recover all sorts of business, legal, medical & personal information from a random sample of machines. Even if a machine has a wipe button it often just wipes the index and not the actual file from the drive.

Using the free Testdisk forensic recovery software you can most likely retrieve documents the same way you would from a PC’s hard drive or camera’s SD memory card.
