$500 to reset the data?  no thanks.

i dont see the point in copy machines even storing all the data permanently.  just scan it, store it temporarily, print it, and then delete it.  sounds retarded to pay $500 for that

Oh shit. That's pretty interesting and nerve-wracking at the same time. I wouldnt expect copiers to store images anyway.

Be right back guys, going to see if the local bank doesn't want to sell their copy machine.

Wow. That's surprising, I never actually assumed a copier would do that.

I thought they used a RAM system where a scanned photo would be put into it's temporary memory so it could print it multiple times. A hard drive is a little overkill, but it's useful if a company loses a file and wants to recuperate it. That is, if they don't mind browsing 20k+ photos

Yeah I'd have assumed the same. I can't really think of a reason why they would need to store all the images on a HDD.

Well, I don't know about you but I can see it being useful for some companies. I'd sell the HDD as an add-on, not a built in feature.

Why the fuck don't copiers use volatile flash memory just for the past 100 documents or so (to allow queing while forgetting everything as soon as you turn it off)... I can't see a HDD beeing of any use...

This kind of stuff is always interesting. I recovered lost/deleted/corrupt pictures from my camera (memory card) couple of weeks ago. It was nice to see how all of my half a year ago taken pictures were still there!

Now I'll have to go check if there's something interesting in our copy machines...

well now that the news has told everyone yes we should be worried. If they didn't tell everybody it wouldn't have been a problem

No it's not more of a problem than it was before. The type of people who would have exploited this information probably knew long in advance to this video and they've been at work for quite some time.

I was listening to Leo Laporte in my car and he was talking about this. I was surprised too that copy machines used hdd, I always assumed that they would use RAM.

I remember when he had that show on Tech Tv ( then it went gay G4 ) .......... I think it was either him or some fat dude he had on the show that I would have like to punch right in the throat for being so cocky and arrogant toward callers and viewers

Well Winston, we didn't think the producers were stupid enough to use an HDD.

I dont think its really stupidity... It could be useful.  Its more that people didnt know to erase the HDD before they sell it.

By "Erase" do you mean reformat?

and by reformat you mean overwrite 7-15 times with a series of 1s and 0s right?

Because anything short of overwriting your data does nothing to hide it from a willing villain...

I work with computers, that's my job Floppy, I know that.

If Winston said yes then I was going to point out that reformatting is pointless because there's plenty of free programs out there to recuperate the data.
