Company buys laptop for employee.
Employee uses the laptop to work on company's files
Employee stops working for the company.
Files are still copied on the company's file-servers, however the employee should not have access to the company's files after he stopped working for the company.
This laptop was bought before the domain deployment, and was used as such only in workgroup environment. laptop is not part of a domain, only has local user profile.
Given that the employee is still using the laptop for his own use, and that we can reach him over e-mail (outlook/exchange), here is the question:
1) is there any way to gain access to this laptop over the internet? ideally we should be able to see what is stored in the laptops hard drive and interact.
Any server/client "backdoor" software would work, like Radmin.
2) if 1 is not possible, what is the fastest way to do a zero-fill/low level format of the laptop hard drive?
I recall a small utility called Hard Drive Killer Pro what would somehow "kill" the hard drive not allowing access to data. was available at http://web.archive.org/web/20070312013254/www.hackology.com/programs/hdkp/ginfo.shtml
