comment How isolated are files on a VirtualBox virtual machine from the host filesystem?
Hi Polynomial, thanks for the answers so far. So if I'm on a Mac, you're saying I don't need to do anything except just use shred or sdelete from the terminal of my Mac to then delete the virtual disk? I was slightly confused by the first bullet point in your answer, as wouldn't overwriting the disk sectors involve formatting the entire Mac OS partition, not just the virtual disk?

So, if I had a dynamically allocated virtual disk, and I encrypted it before deleting it, would that suffice?

comment Tracking unique web site visits without logging IP addresses
This is sort of what I was getting at in my comment. IP addresses != user data.

What's wrong with md5hashing the IP addresses? Also, it seems like IP addresses are all over the Internet, and you're not associating the IP address with user data. Sorry, I'm not sure I understand the sensitivity of protecting an IP address. Maybe you could explain? Thank you! :)
