ubuntuprivacy

Realised that "wipefox" was too limited as it only wiped files related to Firefox usage. I wrote a new script that I named "ubuntuprivacy" to include commands to clear other traces left behind as a result of activities performed on your system.
"ubuntuprivacy" currently wipes your Firefox history and cache, Ubuntu Trash and "Recent Documents" history.

#!/bin/sh
echo “Proceeding to clean your system to ensure your privacy.”
echo “Wiping Firefox history and cache.”
sudo srm -rllv .mozilla/firefox/*.default/*.sqlite
sudo srm -rllv .mozilla/firefox/*.default/Cache/*
sudo srm -rllv .mozilla/firefox/*.default/OfflineCache/*
echo “Wiping Ubuntu Trash.”
sudo srm -rllv .local/share/Trash/files
echo “Wiping Recent Documents history.”
sudo srm -rllv .recently-used.xbel

#Version 1.0 dated 12th Sept 2009.
#Pre-requisite is having "secure-delete" installed. Install it using "sudo apt-get install secure-delete".

Lazy to create the script. Download it here. More items to be tackled by this script in the near future.
