My Macbook Pro 13 (2015) was recently stolen. I activated FMM about an hour after the event and two hours later received an update that the machine was erased. Questions:
1) What does this mean exactly? Is this message triggered when the wipe is initiated or after the wipe is completed. Can I reliably infer that the HDD was wiped? What's to prevent the baddie from simply turning off the machine when the wipe is initiated? I'm just trying to understand the possible outcomes here, especially with the data on the drive.
2) The HDD was encrypted with filevault 2. Does this provide effective protection from anyone getting at the data?
3) Is the machine bricked (like an iOS device would be) or can it still be resold as a working computer?
