Maybe I'm being too simplistic, but couldn't you just walk into the room
before a meeting starts and starting up Windows sound recorder? Seems to
me that this would meet the requirements of the challenge.

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


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...
