Notebooks, even Macs, get stolen. Once it’s gone, what can you do to get it back? Orbicule’s Undercover. Petter Roisland’s MacBook was stolen, but Undercover provided enough information to track down the thieves:
Early this morning I received a new email from Orbicule. This time they received several pictures from the machine. The pictures were in an amazing quality - as if taken with a normal digital camera! They showed four people sitting behind the computer, and there was also a screenshot where one of them wrote his name.
After some research I found out that one of these persons was actually the leading drugs dealer in our region. I quickly gathered the pictures and gave them to the local police… The police called me to say they had received the necessary information from the ISP, and that they recovered my Mac.
On Mac360 we wrote about our Undercover experience a few years ago; here, here, and here.
