How easy it is to copy confidential files using an iPod

“I Wrote a quick python application (called slurp) to help automate the file copy process,” said Abe Usher at Centreville

He conducted experiments to test the viability of the program and it took 65 seconds to copy all document files from his computer as a logged-in user using Slurp and an iPod. Even without user details, it didn’t take much longer to copy files.

“Without a username and password he used a boot CD-ROM to bypass the login password and copy the document files from hard drive to iPod in about 3 minutes 15 seconds,” Usher added.
