Problem with one of my producers

His using our studio computer to surf porn - I found out when cleaning the Internet Explorer history... I wonder if he touches our console with his dirty fingers

What should I do? I'm so angry right now...

Put a surveillance camera in there... And then publish the pics on the internet.

There is always the possibility to take video surveillance, and then post it to youtube. I'm quite shure that an audio engineer masturbating in the control room would be a smash hit there...

Maybe you should nickname him "Sticky Fingers" , I am sure he will get the hint..

either that or tell him to stop shooting putty on the keyboard..

You should run a rootkit detector on the machine in question. Blacklight works pretty well. There are a few others. Some of the nastier rootkit trojans masquerade as a video codec install program. One of my clients had trouble with one. They'll drop all sorts of nasty spambots and browser hijackers on your machine that will sap resources. Virus scanners will pick that up, but not the rootkit itself, so the problem won't go away.

After doing a little investigative work, I traced the problem computers to one user in particular. After he'd be logged on for a day or two, the computer would magically get hijacked. He wouldn't admit it but I suspect he was trying to watch porn and got tricked into installing something.

So if you must, stick to watching porn on DVDs, at least on studio computers.

I would call a forensic team in and get them to swab the faders, alternatively fit up a webcam, see if you catch him in the act, then send him an anonymous email threatening to expose him exposing himself if the studio's bookings fall below 90%!

Good luck!

So he is booking your studio which I assume is revenue. Whats the problem?
Would it be any different from a rock band bringing in porn magazines?
Look, at the end of the day you don't know where anyones hands have been.
Taking a self rightous tone over someone looking at porn/masturbating is bit immature doncha think?

I'd buy a new keyboard, then deal with this guy. He could catch a virus on your computer and wipe it out. Then you'd be without a computer and down studio time all because he likes to look at "T&A" online.

People have no respect...

mmm aren't you... jumping the gun?
the guy was bored (maybe has a boring life), started surfing, and went to the places he normally visits when he's bored.
OTOH he could've stripped naked and did TERRIBLE things to your poor PC.

why don't you ask him?

What browser? If you're using Internet Explorer, you can hardly condemn anyone for the popups they get. I got a porn popup recently on a fresh XP install, first boot, first execution of IE.... going straight to Firefox.com. Before I could even get there I was seeing boobies.

I'm sorry but our studio can't provide porn to people renting our mix suit etc. I think porn should stay at home - don't bring the porn to work

Well I understand that, being confronted with another persons sexuality inside your own studio is NOT what you obviously run your studio for. heh

I'm just saying maybe it's not that bad, just a really bored person forgetting he's not at home, for a moment. and I would tell him, if I were in your shoes, which I'm not, so.. ehh well I'd tell him don't do it again, or we'll strap some 48V on the offending parts.... for 10 minutes or so... (with a straight face, really dead serious)
