Hi there,

Perhaps one of you IT guys can help me out here. The thing is: my girlfriend thinks, her bosses can read their employees' e-mails (which might be ok from the law's point of view), but it seems they can also "see" their screen via remote control software. And this it the part which we'd like to be sure about by using some online scanning tools (because she can't install software on her work pc). Some website you surf to and click "scan" and it checks your pc for spyware, keyloggers, remote control software etc...

> Can somebody recommend good sites..?

Help is much appreciated!

unforunately if you are unable to execute any programs, then to run a process on a website would (if the network personel are worth their wage) be blocked out as well. I doubt this will be an option.

when you say remotely viewing their computer they may have some software that detects web page content or the amount of flesh shown in a graphical image (it does exist but not common place)

the only other method i am aware of is monitoring web traffic, web logs, or using cctv cameras.


the ability to watch everyones screen would seriously slow down the performance of many office networks so is unlikely I reckon :)

Why not just assume you are being monitored at work and deal with it? :-)

Because it might be illegal at a certain point and my girlfriend's bosses don't seem to be bothered very much about their employees' legal rights. Cheating them wherever they can... And we'd like to put a stop to this. Unfortunately, this being Portugal it's not easy for her or her coworkers to say "I quit" and just pick something else.

:evil:

You're still in a pre-Brexit world, so EU rules apply and they state your employer cannot read your personal email, as that is private.
There's only a view usable remote computer viewers, so I'd suggest checking in task manager to see what process are running (task manager will most likely be enabled). Look for processes belonging to programs like dameware, or teamviewer.
