Not going to defend the guy here. If he's a pedo then he should fry. But the bigger question here is this. In order to fix a computer, there is no need to go thru any files other than system files. Which means that the Best Buy crew has nothing better to do than go thru everyone's personal stuff on any computer that they get their hands on. Just as it's a crime for him to possess it, it should also be a crime for them to do what they did, because technically, once they "found" the info, they were themselves in possession of it also. No different than you taking your car to a garage to get fixed, and having the mechanic go thru your glove compartment, your trunk, tear up your carpets and interior and then say "oops, I accidentally found some crack in the car".
Not defending a pedo, but there's a bigger legal issue here that people don't see.
Anyone, who would think that no one will look at pics or files that has taken their pc in to anyone, HAS TO BE THE DUMBEST FK ON THE EARTH.

Can you read and comprehend that.

Your joke statement,-because technically, once they "found" the info, they were themselves in possession of it also.

Do you wear a helmet, can anyone be this fing stupid.

The possession falls on the hard drive, notice how the tech wasn't arrested fool.

What the hell are you talking about? Why would anyone who knows anything about computers need to access data files to fix problems with the operating system. Hardware or software, there would be absolutely no reason to open data files. What good would viewing a picture or video do? I have a computer tech that regularly works on my office computers and he has never had to look at any of my data files. What you are saying is absurd.
Everything on a PC is stored on a HDD as data, absurd, really, what part was.

Copy and paste if you have the brains of where I said watching video was necessary to repair.

The point, do you know what point means ?

The point is, human nature, anyone who doesn't erase anything they don't want people to see, is the DUMBEST FK ON THE EARTH.

They don't need to look, and the funny part is they went through and watched all the videos and looked at all the pics.

There is no clause stating they will not access pics or video.

Data is data no matter what file type its stored in.

The point is you know nothing about computers and how the law works towards them. Data is data.

If people don't want personal data being seen by a tech, then either encrypt it or erase it.

Very simple.

Ethics will not make this place lose business.

Apparently this scum has never seen all the thousands of news story's that have happened all over the country with the same scenario.

I hope someone murders your family and tapes it, then saves it on the HDD. Then they walk away Scott free because the tech was going against policy for looking at video because they needed their PC repaired.

You make point that everyone can agree on. The guy was an idiot. Other than that, you're a moron! Whether or not personal files are encrypted or not, IS NOT THE ISSUE! The issue is that employees of a store have NO RIGHT OR REASON to snoop thru any files that DO NOT pertain to the system files when trying to repair or recover a computer...YOU MORON! You obviously have trouble understanding simple basic points!

It's already happened.

One of the tactics used by spammers to avoid having their web sites shut down is to distribute them across many zombie'd Windows systems and then use various DNS techniques (such as fast flux) to direct traffic to them. This approach is favored when the content in question has dubious legal status in the jurisdiction(s) involved, e.g., child porn, drugs, gambling, etc.

It's unlikely that the former owners of the systems being used for this purpose have any idea what's going on -- but were they so unfortunate as to have their systems serviced by a similarly unethical tech (who, BTW, should be fired on the spot) then they might well find themselves in the same situation.

The problem is that many so-called "forensics experts" have yet to figure out (or admit) that this problem exists on a massive scale -- despite object lessons like the Julie Amero case, that have served to highlight what some of us have said for years.

There is no such thing as an open video, the tech was snooping and so does every single human on the planet earth.

Yes, I understand your welfare point and what you discussing with your advanced dish washer mind.

Should anyone open anything but admin error, dump, registry files, NO, will every tech open what they shouldn't, YES, will it change, NO, will there ever come a day when its illegal to NO.

So the scum gets busted and noting will save him, and he wasn't phised, no one was mailing out porn on his PC, he is a pedo scum who needs to be shot dead.

I bet a year of your dish washing paycheck, that if you were in court and the person who hacked your family to death and was caught the same way, you would be screaming prosecute and not let him go because it was an unethical violation of privacy.

Now get back to your dishes before you get fired.

Not to mention his illegal activities would not have been discovered bc clearly he is another person who keeps you geeks employed. When PCs were $2000, it made sense to have them worked on but not when you can buy them today for $300-$400. It is kind of like lawnmowers. People dont winterize them or the ethanol turns to mush and they won't start. Instead of paying the small engine guy $100 they throw them out and buy a new one.

Where the fk do you retards come from.

You shouldn't even be allowed to drive a car your so fing stupid.

You said- When PCs were $2000.

Prices have gone up not down, YOU'RE SO STUPID ITS SCARY.

For the last 10 years you could buy a 400.00 welfare PC like you have, or a 5000.00 like I have.

My CPU costs over a 1000.00 and 8mo ago year my I7-990 was over a 1000.00

Your computer has a HDD which is worth 30.00, I have SSD's that cost over a 1000.00.

"For real" prices of computers have been falling for the last decade and this why there are so few makers of PCs today. Nobody could make any money in them. This is why Dell's stock has gone nowhere since the tech crash of 99-00'. I will now preempt your dell bashing bc clearly you are the type who would have something to say about them too.

I can't even begin to comprehend how you have made it in life.

The only PC's that have fallen in price are computers that use outdated components.

Like what your garbage Dell uses.

Computers are based on what chipset and CPU they use, how the FK you get prices have fallen when a new top of the line CPU still has a price of over a 1000.00, when 10 years ago, they where around 900, there is no such monster as a price fall when you have different architecture due to tech changes.

So I am a person who would say something about a Dell, what the FK does that mean, what's wrong, you have nothing intelligent to say and can't come up with an actual rebuttal.

Dell are nothing but GARBAGE, they use the worst motherboard made, they have the slowest ports of anything.

E-machines use to use better motherboards then Dell.

Sorry you bought one, but I bet it works for what you do with it.

P.S. Anyone running Windows 7 with SP1, make sure you have KB2656356, it was just released by microsuck yesterday, and fixes a flaw in .NET

I have been testing windows 8, can you tell me what you think about it ?

A criminal defense attorney can order an independent forensic evaluation of the computer to determine the date said files were installed. More than likely the computer won't be made available to the defense. Such a move could prove risky to the client if he did in fact posses this info before the repair.
The more likely scenario would be a personal intrusion into files by best buy was unwarranted and is in violation of his rights. Government needs to stop forcing private industry to spy on citizens.
actually, during the discovery phase, the prosecution has an obligation to turn over evidence to the defense for them to also have access to it. To not do so would be illegal and grounds for a mistrial.

Best Buy had no right to access files not within the pervue of the work they needed to do. That is, unless someone from Best Buy actually put those images there to frame this guy.
