Last Friday's issue pointed to an article with technical information about caller ID. Jr. Skulker Lucky225 wrote to us saying he is very familiar with that article and has used it to develop a technique for spoofing call waiting caller ID, which he describes in an article of his own at the above link. He includes a .wav file that you can use to demonstrate, but you must play this into the phone line with great care to keep the quality high enough to work.
Jr. Skulker Steve Roderick suggested this site which sells a $24 product (30 day free trial) that is designed to clean up everything on your hard drive that could be used as evidence against you. It doesn't just erase files, but makes sure they are eliminated from the recycle bin and overwrites the erased files with binary patterns to make sure they can't be unerased. WebSkulker downloaded the demo version and looked at all the menus. It has a comprehensive set of options that makes it seem quite legitimate, and is highly rated at download sites, so it probably works as advertised.
main claim, however, can't be verified by the common jr.
skulker: "Forensic Analysis software such as EnCase used by
investigators, law-enforcement and others, can recover evidence from
parts of your hard drive that you thought were empty, parts that you
had cleaned... " and they go on to say that their Evidence
Eliminator can defeat EnCase. But without buying a $1,000 copy
of EnCase, how would we know if this is true? The EnCase program
is described at this site if you are interested:
"The Library of American Broadcasting holds a wide-ranging collection of audio and video recordings, books, pamphlets, periodicals, personal collections, oral histories, photographs, scripts and vertical files devoted exclusively to the history of broadcasting." Some of the library's audio and visual material are available online. This site was submitted by Jr. Skulker Analog.
