    Oh, and I had a thought about their methodology - the screen recording software only works when it’s booted from the internal hard drive. Boot with a USB stick with a Linux live image, mount the internal drive as read-only, and you can copy the entire thing, and nobody will ever know.

      Most people struggle with the idea of installing an OS let alone a portable OS that can be moved from one machine to another. I doubt the CBC has any Linux nerds outside of the IT department.

      Also, even mounting a drive as RO can leave traces. In a forensics lab special devices are used to read drives while stoping any changes from being made to a disk in order to not disturb evidence.
