Hi! I am a very concerned about internet privacy and use a program called HD-X Lock to set a master and user password to the HDDs firmware (on the pcb of the HDD) so that nowbody exept me can (with a boot disk and the program) read the HDDs exept they pysically open the HDD and take the spindle to a external reader (or change the PCB to a same one without passwords?). The program is compatible with all HDDs which are ATA compatible. The program is quite cheap and the demo should provide some security but not all that is possible... Also i use a anonymous VPN internet tunnel called Relakks (from Sweden) which gives me a new IP adress over the ISP ones so that i always apear to be from Sweden - the providers of this service dont give away information of me to anyone exept i did something that would inprison me for over 2 years. Also the connection from my ISP to the VPN server is 128bit encrypted so that my ISP sees only bits and bytes but not what i really do. The service cost only 5€ a month. Furthermore i use Peerguardian2 which is a ip-blocker that has several lists of ips and ip ranges which it does not allow connections to. The program is free.. Always glad to help so post if you got questions.
