    Nearly every digital copier built since 2002 contains a hard drive - like the one on your personal computer - storing an image of every document copied, scanned, or emailed by the machine.

    In the process, it's turned an office staple into a digital time-bomb packed with highly-personal or sensitive data.

    If you're in the identity theft business it seems this would be a pot of gold.
