funny you should say this. a few coworkers were discussing how you can practically walk in to anywhere with a hi vis vest and hard hat and people will think you belong there.

Who posted that video of that guy walking through the hotel? The dude who is paid to break in and prove they can destroy corporations and people extremely easily because security is a joke?

I did. He does pentesting.


Relevant part starts at 19:00, but if you haven't seen it, watch the whole thing. It's excellent.

That's a lot of ifs. Find My Mac only works with Wifi. Once it is wiped.. there is nothing to track with. Also from my experience, location doesn't mean the cops will go arrest that person at the location even if it is a residence.. They will just politely go to the door and ask the person at the door to return it and who would admit they stole something to cops?!.. If you want the police to arrest, you need concrete evidence ie user's picture.. that's why don't rely on Find My Mac but spend the money on Hidden instead.

The store is dumb, for not to have at least a Kensington lock on the macbook. I bet they won't claim insurance because the deductible will be more than the Macbook.

I hope no customer information is on there because they can get in quite a bit of trouble for that.

The only dumb thing the thief had done is he didn't use a more powerful light source.. CMOS cameras are very prone to be knocked out.

Practically can steal any bike in broad daylight with a lock cutter as long as you're wearing a construction vest.

People will just assume it's some guy working for the city, and someone's locked their bike in a spot not meant for bike locking.

It's true, hell you don't even need the vest if you have a clipboard it's pretty much good enough. When I have to go look at a space to check out the existing conditions I can't remember ever having a problem getting in anywhere with just a clipboard, business card, tape measure and a camera including into stock rooms of retail stores and left alone.
