Working as a tech for a school district, we do a lot of filtering, lockdowns, etc. So I get to do a bunch of security stuff. You high schoolers hate me. Sucks Huh? Heh.
Anyway you'll like these.
Running a network scan on a vocational department I get a hit for Napster. I narrow it down to one group of machines in the drafting class and after school's out I head over there and crank em all up to find it. It's not on any classroom pcs. I look all through them. Long story short- the teacher had 2 gigs of 80's mp3s on his machine. A strict no-no. Select all, Delete. No more Napster. Hey, I left a note.
Well 2 months later, we were prepping the same school for a server upgrade that was gonna happen a few weeks later, we get a call.
"The whole school's getting out of space errors from the server" This same idiot copied ANOTHER 2 gigs of MP3s to the server and ran it out of space (thus the upgrade). I ran him down and deleted them from the server. I asked him why he had copied that stuff up there. He said he wanted to make sure it didn't get lost in the upgrade. He got the full lockdown.
Same school different class, different year. Before Christmas break teachers give the kids 'free days', no classwork, just play on the computers. Apparently this had been planned for a while, because these kids were coming in with headphones to play Internet games. I arrived to replace a dead drive and while sitting in the back of the class I saw all these games going on. Tsk Tsk. Look over shoulders, gather the urls.
I called the proxy admin and read them out. He said he was gonna block them immediately. I took great delight in watching the "Bess can't go there" url pop up and kill the games pages one by one.
They hate me, but they hate Bess more.
