Re: zap anything and everything that has been to a list of countries
We've done away with the list. If you've been on travel, when you get back, it gets wiped and fresh image is installed.
Not that that would have helped with this particular hack.
If you're sufficiently paranoid these days, the correct procedure is actually to chuck it all to a reseller as soon as it comes back and give them a new, fresh out of the box, not re-furbed laptop. The BIOS, the hard drive, even the mouse might have been compromised with malware your OotB AV suite simply isn't equipped to deal with.
