Advice For Serious Leakers

[T]he grugq is commenting on the story: A note on our lawsuit against Otto and Uber.

If you are a serious leaker you should be able to use Internet search engines but just in case:

  1. How to create a bootable USB stick on Windows
  2. Create a Bootable Linux Flash Drive in Three Easy Steps
  3. How to Create a Bootable Linux USB Flash Drive, the Easy Way
  4. Making a Kali Bootable USB Drive
  5. Tails Installation Assistant

Everyone has a favorite Linux distribution but Tails (#5) should be your default for leaking and Kali (#4) if you have more serious goals in mind.

BTW, don’t expect any sympathy if these are your facts:


We found that six weeks before his resignation this former employee, Anthony Levandowski, downloaded over 14,000 highly confidential and proprietary design files for Waymo’s various hardware systems, including designs of Waymo’s LiDAR and circuit board. To gain access to Waymo’s design server, Mr. Levandowski searched for and installed specialized software onto his company-issued laptop. Once inside, he downloaded 9.7 GB of Waymo’s highly confidential files and trade secrets, including blueprints, design files and testing documentation. Then he connected an external drive to the laptop. Mr. Levandowski then wiped and reformatted the laptop in an attempt to erase forensic fingerprints.

Wow! That’s incredibly lame.

You shouldn’t commit crimes at all but if you do, don’t embarrass everyone in IT.
