    Screen shot web monitoring

    Hi,

    I was wondering if there was something which if a student went on a specific website say www.surfpros.com could the pages they go on have a screen dump taken and saved somewhere.

    We only have the ablility to say that they have been on the proxy as the web address logged is jargen (as its how the proxy works www.surfpros.com/load_of_gibberish) but we need to get evidence they have been on myspace through it and the screen dump thing would be ideal.

    Regards, Glenn

    You can decrypt the 'load_of_gibberish' by running it through (normally) a BASE64 decoder

    http://makcoder.sourceforge.net/demo/base64.php

    Most VNC software will allow you to take screenshots if you like.

    It's also good for encrypting search terms to search for in a log

    Thanks. I was wondering if there is anything that would do the screen logging automatically?

    Securus does this. It'll take a snapshot of any violation, and you can enter your own 'bad' words for it to pick up on

    Why thank you!

    I wasn't sure if it was deliberate! I'd actually love to be able to install a Securus box but they're far too expensive to justify...

    Does your AUP say anything about not attempting to hack/bypass school security? Of course, the Computer Misuse Act does even if your AUP doesn't, but that's possibly going in a little heavy-handed!

    I take it the assumption that they're obviously up to no good, otherwise they would do it normally and allow you to log it isn't acceptable?

    I suppose, they might actually be on sites they are okay to you, they're just civil liberties fans who don't want you to see what they're doing :-)

    Why not just block the anonymous proxies rather than watch people use them?

    We cant block them either thats done by the council and they will only add porn sites for you.

    NickJones: We know what they are using it for, myspace, facebook (which is banned in the AUP and blocked by the council). Just parents dont take my word and need proof.

    I dont know, I just know our school will only take the free blocking provided by the council. Is there no free program that could do it? Id do it myself if I could program, shame I cant.
