PORN

So I had a customer today who while I was working on his computer found a *** load of porn. The file folder was "hidden" but when working on it I had to access hidden items. The folder was on the desktop and was actually titled family photos. Funny btw. Anyway when I went to work on another computer upstairs his wife went on the computer and found the folder. Needless to say *** went down.

    This is why you bury and encrypt your stuff, or use alternate data streams.... :P. When I worked for a certain hospital, I actually had to transfer ~30GB of the stuff from the chief of surgery's old computer to his new one. I reported it like a good little IT dude, and was told by people that make more an hour than I did a week to shut up and transfer it. Good times.

    You found my computer?!

    Actually I didn't do it on purpose, besides if you're going to do that make it a password user account and for god's sake don't label it family photos, maybe something the wife wouldn't look at like boating photos or monster truck stuff. Things like that.

    So you don't even find this even mildly unethical?

    I dont see how it is. If youre cleaning up a computer you may need to unhide hidden folders and files to remove malware filled folders (There are other reasons this is just the one most common). If it wasnt done in spite I dont see anything wrong with it.

    I understand, Vision. What I am wondering is, did the OP expose hidden files that were intentionally locked, then allow other people to access the data? Whether he did it on purpose is irrelevant. He has a duty to his client to keep his secure files secure. It appears that he failed to do that, resulting in a big ***-storm for the client.

    I really hope that I'm just reading this wrong. I'm not trying to break anyone's balls (or nuts). Just need a little clarification.

    The way I read it is the client had checked the hidden attribute on the folder. When troubleshooting, he followed the very standard step of showing hidden files and system files. It is now visible on the desktop. He then walked away for a bit, and the wife discovered it. This is equivolent of hiding a dirty magazine under the hood of your car. While it isn't easily visible, it isn't exactly secured and will be visible whenever someone works on your car.

    Also, on a side note. Information Assurance and Information Security should never be an onsite tech's duty. You want your data safe and secure? You either do it yourself, or you pay me a lot of money to be your Information Assurance Manager.

    It wasn't a secured file and I ask that all the people I see back up any files they want to keep "prior" to me arriving. At times I do have to wipe hard drives to install a clean version of an OS. The person I was talking about said he did that on all computers. It is not my duty to protect someone's porn stash from their family. I always put the OS back the way I found it, ie will hide folders before I am done. Especially since I don't want people erasing things they shouldn't be. I find a lot of crazy stuff on people's computers though thankfully no child porn as of yet. I really stress this stuff before I even schedule an appointment as I do not want to be put in that situation.

    up that's pretty much it.

    OK. I understand now. Thanks for the clarification. I'm an Information Security Analyst, so I guess I just got a little zealous. Different SOP. I apologize for any offense taken.

    My brother found a butt load of homemade kiddy porn on some guys computer while working on it. He called the cops and they carted the slimeball off and confiscated his computer.

    I wouldn't hesitate to do the exact same thing...after I drug him outside and beat him with a tire iron. I'm not aggressive, nor am I a violent man, unless kids are involved. Not a second thought.
