Destroying Sensitive Data

  • Chris Binnie

Abstract

You may be familiar with popular Windows products like CCleaner; they clean up temporary files to help with privacy and as a result free up disk space. They also help declutter your registry from previously installed software. These actions are supposed to help improve the startup time of your computer after a reboot and improve performance overall. They also have specific profiles for certain applications, such as browsers, which allow them to target known spyware among other nefariously installed packages.
