Secure delete trash


I have been asked if it is possible through KACE to secure delete the trash just like one was able to do on Mac before el capitan http://www.intego.com/mac-security-blog/how-to-securely-empty-trash-in-os-x-el-capitan/.

If Apple doesn't provide a method, it's unrealistic to expect the K1000 to have a way to do it.
That said, basically, if there is a way to do it in terminal, you can use a shell script in a kscript to do it.

Based on the article you linked, something like this could work (I'm guessing, don't have El Capitan yet):  srm -s -r ~/.Trash
