rm does not permanently delete files
Dawson Botsford

Nice tool, I was aware of how rm works under the hood because I studied at university; I also belive that if you fill bytes with random numbers it’s better than putting 0s everywhere. Some (black hats!) say that magnetic disks or flash drives you can still recover the data, even after writing, because of how the hardware represents the bits under the hood.

Like what you read? Give Michele Nasti a round of applause.
