    sonic.xls

    Hi all
    Just to warn you that kids are getting sonic.xls from the internet... it contains a Flash game.
    Now im wondering if anyone has found a way to stop the file from been opened on a Windows 2003 network. Any ideas would be great.. Also we have a big problem with roms.. ive diabled running .exe files from d, e, f, g and U (which is there home drive).. but they are still been able to use the roms..
    any ideas on how to stop this would be fantastic
    Tim

    have a look at software restrictions in group policies,
    if you do it as a hash file it works even if they rename the file.

    Read this article:

    Also, for using hash rules you'll need some way of generating the MD5 hash.

    Re: sonic.xls

    Hi,

    I found this on one of our network shares the other day. I thought one of the kids had the idea to put this flash game in to an Excel document, now i know they've downloaded it!

    Last term we had the problem with students using Excel and Macromedia Studio programs to get round Lan Ranger and Remote Control's restrictied application and title check! luckly this year the teachers appear to be able to control their classes so kids haven't get been 'messing around'!

    Has any played the sonic game. its actually not bad to play?! lol

    Robert!
