Is there a way of finding out what has been accessed on my MacBook Pro whilst in the possession of an apple authorised service centre?

Hi Guys,
I'm a bit new to this discussion group thing although I've been using Macintosh computers for many years (showing my age).
I handed my MacBook Pro to be repaired at an authorised apple service centre. When I handed it in they said they needed to keep hold of it to run some diagnostics and requested my password. I've owned various models of mac for the the past 17 years and this is the first hardware problem I have encountered, hence I have never bothered to set up user accounts. 
As I live in quite a remote part of Sweden I am paranoid that some untrusted technician is going to make a copy of my music (11,000 tracks) or share some of my personal information (scanned copies of my birth certificate, passport, certificates, photos, etc.) on the web. Is there a way of finding out what activity has taken place whilst they've had it in their possession?
I appreciate any advice you guys can offer.
Thanks!
PS: I've already thought about the 'recently opened' menu and The machine in question is a MacBook Pro 17" (2011) running OS X 10.6.8 (need Rosetta).

If you put your info into the computer and hand it to another, you have to assume they will copy everything.
Why are you putting scanned copies of valuable identity information into a computer than can be hacked, stolen, lost or compromised by a dirty tech?
Have you lost your mind?

No. The tech would just deny it if he did, or tell the truth which the answer would be "NO" in either case.
The employer won't ask that sort of questions without solid proof, less they make a enemy of the employee and/or risk being sued for defamation of character.
It's not like they bother to have a team of people watching over his shoulder that he doesn't stick a USB thumb drive of your data into his pocket to take home.

If it's iTunes music, it has your personal ID embedded into the song files. Most IT techs know this though.

Too late now, all you can do is not worry about it.
Take your personal info out of the machine and if you need it, burn cd/dvd copies, a few USB thumb drives, Iron Keys or self encrypting external storage drives with key and/or keypad.

  • Need to find out what has been modified to running-config

    Hello,
    When I enter the "reload" command, Cisco ASA 5510 asks me
    a question: System config has been modified Save? [Y]es/[N]o:
    All I did was issuing a few "show" commands before the "reload" command. I definitely need to find out what
    has been modified before the reboot
    Is there any way to find out what has been modified to the running configuration.
    Thanks!

    If you want to know when changes are made, but don't want to setup TACACS (and you have a syslog server setup), you can have the router syslog all commands entered while in config mode:
    devcorert01#conf t
    devcorert01(config)#archive
    devcorert01(config-archive)#log config
    devcorert01(config-archive-log-cfg)#hidekeys
    devcorert01(config-archive-log-cfg)#logging enable
    devcorert01(config-archive-log-cfg)#notify syslog
    Anytime someone enters any command while in config mode, the command will be sent to your syslog server.
    Examples:
    Jul 21 10:15:41 EDT: %PARSER-5-CFGLOG_LOGGEDCMD: User:console logged command:do sh run
    Jul 21 10:17:33 EDT: %PARSER-5-CFGLOG_LOGGEDCMD: User:console logged command:interface GigabitEthernet2/2
    Jul 21 10:17:38 EDT: %PARSER-5-CFGLOG_LOGGEDCMD: User:console logged command:shutdown
    Jul 21 10:17:42 EDT: %PARSER-5-CFGLOG_LOGGEDCMD: User:console logged command:no shutdown
    Note the "do show run". Even thought that is not a config command per se, it was entered while in config mode. Also notice the user is "console". If it was from a telnet session, you would see
    Jul 21 10:17:33 EDT: %PARSER-5-CFGLOG_LOGGEDCMD: User:unknown user logged command:interface GigabitEthernet2/2
    Jul 21 10:17:38 EDT: %PARSER-5-CFGLOG_LOGGEDCMD: User:unknown user logged command:shutdown
    Jul 21 10:17:42 EDT: %PARSER-5-CFGLOG_LOGGEDCMD: User:unknown user logged command:no shutdown

  • Is there a way of finding out what lists in sharepoint are being looked up for document templates etc

    Hi,
    I am currently in the middle of setting up SharePoint sites and have come across many lists that have not been updated for a while. I am wondering is there a way of finding out what lists are being used and what lists aren't being used for example I would
    like to find out if a list is being used for a look up.

    I don't think there any such option available OOTB, however you can use PowerShell to get such information e.g.
    $web = Get-SPWeb http://localhost
    $f = $web.Lists["Contact"].Fields["Customer"]
    $f.ListsFieldUsedIn()
    $web.Dispose()
    Check this link: http://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/45574/is-a-list-being-used-as-a-lookup-for-some-web-part-in-the-site-collection

  • Is there any way to find out what brush is applied to a path?

    I'm trying to write a script: select some paths, run the script, then each path that has a brush applied to it is changed to use a random brush whose name is sufficiently similar to its current brush. The application is pretty obvious - draw a bunch of lines in, say, 'ragged marker 1', then give it some extra liveliness by having five or six 'ragged marker' brushes that get randomly chosen.
    The problem I'm running against is that as far as I can tell, Illustrator only lets Javascript set what brush an object is using with brush.applyTo (artItem), but I can't seem to find any way to find out what path a brush is currently using via JS.
    Am I just not looking in the right place of the Javascript reference, or is this really a thing that only has a setter, with no corresponding getter?

    Just like you said earlier

    Is there a way to find out what your security question answer is?

    Amazing,  I can't find out what app on my phone just ran 388mb of data xfer at 2:44am yesterday while I'm sound asleep yet the LE types can subpoena and search warrant anything I do online and with who and for how long.  Verizon list who I receive phone calls from and make calls to and from where I receive messages and to whom/where I text but can't tell me squat about something that is eating up band width.  I'm sure it's probably some app that is running in the background on my phone. I've just got to figure out what it is and kill it.  I want to drop (cause I don't use it, it's slower than a dial up 1200bps modem)my data plans and save about $50 a month.

  • Is it possible to find out what has been downloaded on my phone as for some reason my data usage doubled in one month but I have no idea how

    Hi
    Need some help regarding downloads and data usage on my Iphone 4. In one month my usage doubled and I had 6 downloads which used up half of my data allowance (250mb). I hadn't used my phone any differently and I do not download music/movies/tv programmes etc. Orange are being really useless with helping me and I would like to be able to find out what sites were visited or what was downloaded on certain days as some of the high usage is when I'm at work and not able to use my phone.

  • Is there any way I can see what has been added?

    So I noticed that sometimes that films in the film club are added on different days than Thursday and sometimes television shows are added to the On Demand on other days beside Thursday. Is there some sort of alert or email service that lets us know what has been added on to BT Vision? It would help alot.

    Is this link any help?
    http://www.btvision.bt.com/on-demand/?cat=filmclub
    It seems to give the film club info.
    If you sort the list by "ending" date, shoul should be able to find recently added ones.
