Access Logger

Hi

I got a 128MB USB Memory Stick that I need for school. I'm wondering if there's a program available that will log the IP Address, time and date of every access of the device.

e.g. If anyone inserted it into a PC, it would automatically send me an e-mail with the IP Address of the computer and the time and date that it was accessed.

Thanks for reading

I could think about writing

I could think about writing a small script for you to do that and you could set it to autorun but I'd need some info

1. What e-mail client does your school use?
2. What OS does it use?

Thanks

Steve

Thanks =D1. I don't know

Thanks Biggrin

1. I don't know what e-mail client my school uses Beee It has Outlook Express, but I don't think any of them are set up.
Would it be possible to send the e-mail through PHP? I've seen some online forms where you just type in the info and it sends it to the person. Similar to what CNN ( http://www.cnn.com/feedback/forms/form2a.html?1 ) have. If you know what I mean

2. Windows XP

At he moment it autoruns and adds the username, ip and date to a hidden text file. If that sounds ok for starters I'll up load the code later.

How'd you make it autorun?

Windows doesn't process autorun.inf automatically on USB devices... so there's no "stealthy" way to do it. Even if you used the "action=" line in autorun.inf, the person inserting the key would have to know to double-click "do so and so (using the program provided on the drive)" in the AutoPlay dialog.

Very nice.

As far as an emailer, if size isn't a worry, you could modify the Uniform Server (http://www.uniformserver.com/) to only have PHP/Apache and no MySQL/Perl/etc. and have there be a PHP mailer script. (You could also try a modification of Abyss Web Server, which is smaller.)
