Nice app, seems fair enough, but I wonder if they have any real results?

I would also like to know if someone has the ability to find out if undercover is installed on a machine, making them not connect the machine to a network.

The theif could just as easily swap out the HD, which would then render the software useless...

Im actually building a open source version of this, but what research tells us is that theifs dont reformat the machine and use them as they are or they simply sell them at a pub or at a cash converters
