In particular, he will easily obtain the encryption keys for the encrypted filesystem, and then proceed to read all your files. By the very nature of the snapshot system, you will not notice it. The host admin has full control over that kernel, and thus can alter it dynamically to inspect the RAM of any running process. In any case, if there was disk encryption, it would be done by that kernel. Either way, it can be done quite easily and silently. This entirely depends on what your passwords are protecting.
An evil sysadmin will be interested in resetting your passwords only if he has something to gain which will offset the risks as shown above, reading your emails will be quite risk-free for the attacker, but actually resetting your passwords should attract your attention and may result in trouble for the attacker if he was not careful enough. Google already owns the Internet, after all.
Date, time, which server you connected to IP and port , the size of the request, the response size, how many times you connected to it. Can the VPN service provider monitor or intercept the full length of the transmitted data, or are they able to do so for some part of it? It depends. If the connection is encrypted TLS, SSH, for example , the provider can intercept the message but cannot know its contents, as the encryption is meant to protect exactly against this kind of attack.
Not only monitor, but copy, alter, and replay any message. Logged into a plain FTP Server? Your credentials can be copied. The files you transmitted can be copied or changed. Also, can they alter and re-transmit the data as it passes through the VPN server?
Same as above. The Terms and Conditions. Yes, that boring page full of legalese that almost nobody reads. Will they monitor you? Like every single Facebook beacon, every Google Analytics script, everything on everywhere you navigate. Not worse than everything around you. Will they steal your credentials and your data? Besides being illegal on almost every jurisdiction, it would bury their business pretty fast. How to be sure you are not being monitored instead of protected?
For auth tokens, wrap them in http-only cookies, and use a seperate token for the payload. This is because http-only cookies are not readable by clientside JS. Hope this helps. S The proper answer for this question is very situational, and dependent upon the policies and procedures in place at your company.
Many companies have in place methods of backing up portions of the drive meant for user data, or even the entire drive, across the corporate network. Beyond that, if your company allows, the only things you can do to definitively prevent restoration of your data off the laptop drive, is to do a secure wipe of that data or the whole drive, degauss, or outright destroy the drive. EDIT: While the above discusses what you might be able to do about your privacy now, there really is a larger issue at hand.
Most companies have included in their Acceptable Use Policy or similar documentation, a clause that specifically says you may be subject to monitoring and have no expectation of privacy when using their systems.
He was also technically savvy enough that he probably did some manual cleaning of his own, periodically. This software would record his Internet activities at all times, and relay the logs to the corporate servers whenever the laptop was connected to the intranet. You can imagine the resulting disciplinary actions when this occurred.

Unfortunately I can not find it anymore, but a while ago there was some site that was trying to generate a fingerprint from all it could gather about you, not only the screen resolution. It was telling you how many different systems with that fingerprint it already saw.
I was never able to find any configuration that was not unique CosmicOssifrage: Yep, that looks like it. Quite useful to get an idea for these informations. PlasmaHH: Visited the website, took the test. Yes, the "fingerprint" they extracted is unique The panopticlick "fingerprint" changes with every browser patch.

Best answer IMO No one is going to be able to track you if you are using one of the 3 or 4 standard screen resolutions. Random window sizes, however, would be very unique.
Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my web browser because I've had this.
