10,000 Hard Drives Stolen, Craigslist Hard Drive Market Crashes

Thieves in Malaysia managed to drive off in a truck containing 10,800 Western Digital hard drives. Don’t expect to see the drives hit the market though, Malaysian police were able to identify the culprits, as they used to work at the warehouse the drives were stolen from. The Malaysian news site NST reports that the people driving the truck were in fact waved through security after being recognized by the guard on duty as employees. Apparently the guard hadn’t got the memo about the men being fired.
