Myself and the rest of my coworkers on my (former) employer’s dev team were all just laid off from our jobs, and the employer took our MacBook Pros without letting us clear of our personal information or log out from web services.
Now, I’ve covered the bases the best I can by changing those web passwords, and I was smart enough to use a unique password for logging into this machine and used 2FA on all sites that supported it.
I know that I’m screwed when it comes to the files that were stored on my computer; I lost months of work on personal projects. (To be fair, I shouldn’t have been using it for personal things… but alas, this is the situation I currently find myself in. Live and learn.)
Something that does bother me a lot is that my private signing key and Apple iOS dev certs were on the computer as well.
I’m just really paranoid that something bad is going to come from this. I’ve never let anything like this happen before, but this caught me and my coworkers by surprise; we didn’t have any time to back up or wipe anything. They called us into to a different room, told us the bad news, and unceremoniously escorted us out without letting us go back to our computers.
What steps can and should I take from here on out to help prevent further damage from this?
TL;DR: Laid off, wasn’t able to clear personal data, remove private keys, or log out of websites. What can I do at this point to at least minimize Bad Things™?
