Turning Macs On Thievery

from the gotta-use-it-for-something dept

Keith writes to tell us about a “bloke who used Timbuktu to recover a stolen computer. Timbuktu is a remote management software, which the guy had installed on his sister’s computer so he could connect to it and help her with problems. The machine got stolen, and the crook didn’t delete the hard drive, and so the guy eventually tracked down who had the computer (though the owner claims she didn’t steal it).
