Nasa sells shuttle PCs without wiping secret data


www.bbc.co.uk

US space agency Nasa has been left red-faced after selling off computers without ensuring that highly sensitive data had been removed.

An internal investigation found 10 cases where PCs were sold despite failing data removal procedures.

Another four PCs - which were about to be sold - were found to contain data restricted under arms control rules.

LOL And we are worried about Wikileaks, our own governmental agencies are providing secret information to the public.

I wonder what type of information was leaked? Aliens? The US's secret military space program? Information about where spy satellites are located, as if there not tracked by our enemies any way?

I've bought used Silicon Graphics computers from Nasa at auction before, resold some and kept others for my business, Nasa always removed the hard drives before selling them. The don't bother trying to wipe the drives, just remove and destroy them. This must be a case of someone forgetting to remove the drives, I wouldn't doubt the data on them was completely free of any encryption.
