    New document source (legal I promise!)

    Anyone can do this, no leet hax0r skills necessary. A recent article reminded me that (in U.S. law) "trash" is abandoned property once it is placed outside a building for pickup. Like boxes, cans, bags, dumpsters. Keep in mind, not all garbage is nasty. Most business related stuff is random documentation and used up office supplies. Nearly zero risk involved and it's like a treasure hunt! :D Nighttime + 30 second walkby = "zomg recycling box JACKPOT!"

    Easy for anyone, big potential for lulz. LEGAL.

    We've seen boxes of goodies on scouting trips to small missions, if this is legal, we may have to rent a truck. If you live in a big city, they may have small offices scattered about, which are goldmines for this sort of thing.

    yes dumpster diving is a traditional way to acquire info,

    however without some authority to do so you can get in trouble... be careful

    In addition to finding sekret dox, dumpsters are also a good place to find delicious cake.

    it depends on location, but the act of placing an item somewhere KNOWING that you will never see it again (like a dumpster) automatically qualifies it as abandoned property. The legal worry is more about possible tresspassing areas and any "damage" done to the containers holding the docx.

    If you're taking a truck to do some "recycling collection", I suggest a low tech application of mud to the plates to avoid any unneccessay complications.

    I know this seems such a tempting idea, but Co$ are a very security conscious organisation, so NOTHING of value will get dumped. The exception to this would be material they want to be found, in the hope that you'll then try to use it and in some way discredit yourself. I'd be wary of doing for that reason, if you find anything gr8, it's gonna be hard to honestly evaluate. This isn't necessarily a reason not to do it, but you'd have to be very cautious.

    I'd like to point out that they'd take you to court trying to set a new precedent or to try and prove it wasn't a dumpster.

    This is a pretty good way of becoming an on-the-radar SP
