Have you seen this video yet? Even my mom has seen it but how many of you are actually using disk encryption? Really that many??
What kind of illegal or illicit shit are you into?
And you think your data warrants a torrent of hackers going after YOUR lappie?
No we kid, we kid, of course AtA is all about privacy and protecting that (no matter if you are a shaddy admin or the pot dealer across the way). So have two tips to lock your laptop down. Harden that bitch so this doesn't happen to you!
- Disable usb booting from bios. So no one can boot to a live OS and harvest your shiznit.
- Enter a bios password for the hard drive and on boot. So no one can get in to change your options or even get a crack at your ram.
Thats it - that simple. Don't say we never done nothing for ya. What do you guys do to lock down your systems from these kinds of attacks? Do you use encryption? Hit us up in the new Intense Debate comments. [Via Hackaday Via Princeton]
