I remember a long time ago, someone posted a link to a app that prevents people from loading programs on windows 7+
It was written by a Code Project member that hangs out here.
I think it was in response to the Russian app that encrypts your hard drive and demands a payment to unlock it.
I downloaded it years ago, and put it on this girls computer that I deemed reckless, and it works like a charm, but I can't locate the program or remember the name of it so I can load it on another computer in the warehouse.
Here's the story,
Literally, somebody walked in the warehouse and connected a phone or something in the USB port and loaded a nasty app that tapped the internet connection, created a sql database, and made recording. Then it called home and transferred the data home to Poland.
A long time ago, someone said something on the internet -- can you help me find it?
Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson
You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
I don't get it. A creep walked into your girl's warehouse and install malware into her computer? Why use a cryptoprevent program when you should simply turn on bitlocker on your girl's computer? This unknown person will not be to walk into the warehouse and mess with it then. Of course, this unknown person can bring it home if he wants. I am worried with your girl's home security.
Now I'm starting to think the warehouse workers are plugging their phones into the computer to charge.
Or it's the old FedEx Program, in which we stopped using FedEx, removed the software but a small program was left on the machine.
Still working on it the theory of how it happened.
