OS X keeps track of every file you've ever downloaded

Well this was an interesting article by Michael McConnell:

I figured I'd share this on here in case you hadn't seen it yet, but the following command will list every file you've downloaded on your Mac:

sqlite3 ~/Library/Preferences/* 'select LSQuarantineDataURLString from LSQuarantineEvent' 

And this one will clear it:

sqlite3 ~/Library/Preferences/* 'delete from LSQuarantineEvent'
