re: Unwanted programs on Win2K

Question: How can someone bypass restrictions in
Win2k
to install software when he doesn?t have proper
privileges?

A little paranoia is a good thing, but since you're a
user, it really isn't your concern.  After all, if
your company has policies against such things as users
installing software, then that's an HR/management
issue.

So he shouldn't be concerned that someone else may be
able to log the passwords to any sites or machines that
he access while sitting at one of his school's workstations?

I, personally, have a tendency to SSH home during class
to read up on email and such whenever it gets a little
boring.  There's also times when I 'su' while logged in
remotely from school.  I know I don't want anyone getting
my root passwords.

Then again, I'm just a user, it really isn't my concern.
