Re: Covert Microphone Application

Wouldnt it just be a lot easier for you or your boss to disconnect the microphone cable than going though some elaborate scheme to prove it could possibly be done? If they can "ruled" any laptop at will then couldnt they also get into your mail servers? Wouldnt anything that would be discussed in your meeting generate followups in a email?

Hi all,

I have recently entered with my boss to our corp. conference room to discover a new (shining) internet laptop on a side desk in the room.

During our chat I mentioned that the laptop has a builtin microphone and therefore enables covert eavsdropping in case the laptop is "ruled" from remote position, and therefore, a conference room PC should have no builtin mic.

My sceptic boss replied instantly - "I challange you, bring me a recording of any meeting - I`ll replace the laptop, and you`ll receive

it."


I therefore need a small covert application (no need in process hiding), which will record microphone input to file. command line application is perfect.


Do any of you know any ?


Guys, I gotta have this laptop...


Regards,

Shiri
