My Mom's laptop was stolen out of her car last night. She filed a police report, but I have a feeling I'm going to need to do my own investigation.
So a quick run-down, I have the following software installed on her laptop:
- Dropbox: I can access the last public IP address that her laptop used to sync. I currently have the theif's IP address, which I gave to the police to try to get the user info from the ISP
- Firefox - Firefox Sync is enabled so I can currently view the history and sites the theif is visiting. No Facebook visits yet, so I haven't been able to get any info on his identity. I can also install Firefox add-ons on my PC and they will sync to her laptop.
- VNC server - it's running on the laptop, but can't access it because I'd need port forwarding enabled on the thief's router
