Copy Machines, a Security Risk?


Recommended Posts

Good stuff. I've wondered about that before. Had no idea everything scaned was saved to a hard drive.


4999 posts eh? Make 5000 a whopper! Thanks for your effort around here.

Yep and it's a little late to try and fix them all up quickly. Would be nice if all of the data was heavily encrypted and deleted after the copier was done after every print/copy/fax job.

Encryption and even offering the ability to wipe the drives in some regards still isn't secure. The best security is for those agencies, businesses, etc. that use them for sensitive or personal information is that they should retain the drives period to ensure there is no possible breach. Truly disturbing to see this.
