Need to make sure a computer is secure.
Okay, So I'll say what I can, but I can't give all the details.
A company that I'm hired by occasionally for computer support has recently had their computers seized by a federal government agency. There is word that they will be getting their computers back soon, but lets just say they aren't out of the woods yet. Upon their return, I will be tasked with...returning them to a more trustworthy state.
Obviously I'll be wiping the hard drives, inspecting the hardware for key loggers or suspicious components, installing the OS from scratch, and encrypting the hard drives with truecrypt.
Do you guys have any suggestions in locking down these machines? They have to use Windows XP, unfortunately, due to proprietary software which is necessary to the operations of their business.
