Is Your Confidential Information Being Sold on eBay?

New York, New York, February 2, 2009—

A study conducted by Kessler International, a world leader specializing in computer forensics, determined that over 40% of the hard drives listed for sale on eBay still contain personal, private, and sensitive information otherwise thought to be erased.

Over the course of one month, Kessler International purchased a large number of hard drives from random sources on eBay, on three separate occasions. The computer forensic engineers at Kessler were able to retrieve information from over 40% of the hard drives.

The combined data consisted of:

Personal & Confidential Documents, including financial information (36%)
E-mails (21%)
Pictures (13%)
Corporate Documents (11%)
Internet Browsing Histories (11%)
DNS server information (4%)
Miscellaneous Data (4%).
