Rocky,

I would ask the professor to officially apply to the administration and IT department with the case.

The main point here is not a hacking but attitude and intention. Indeed, I do not know all the details and context of the incident but for a medical school I assume it is unacceptable. None from us wants to be a patient of such "hey-I-am-toooo-smart-to-study" doctor, where consequences of his decision
are matter of life and death.

Well, yes, I used to cheat at exams but the cheats were hidden quick references and never exam itself, and that was not a medical school... Honestly, now I would prefer to study properly than using the cheats -
simply because it pays back.

Subject: Hidden Copying Software


Hi list,

A friend of mine who is a medical professor asked me if
it is possible to copy his usb thumb drive from their
class room pc without knowing it? he told me maybe
there's a hidden software that copying it in the background?

His exam from his usb thumbdrive was exposed all over
to his student.I told him that you need a very high tech
software or expensive to do it? Is any such software capable
of this? this some kind of impossible task in my views.

Thanks.
