Security Bug

I'm using internet from my faculty by network connection. All the PCs connected to the admin PC and monitored by netsupport

Yesterday discovered that one of the employee at the admin section was stealing my portable data by netsupport, so is there any way to stop him from stealing through the network?

I stopped use portable apps cuz i don't want to make my personal e-mails available for common !

Please I need urgent help, cuz i can't live without portable apps

I tired lot of times to stop

I tired lot of times to stop this stealing by making programming solutions, but i failed, most important try was creating virtual drive secured by password but he could log-in to the virtual drive !

I checked out the website

and it seems that the monitoring is pretty strong. They can even monitor your keystrokes and read your Chat content. So it looks like your out of luck cause they will see everything you do to prevemnt them from looking and so can override it.

I could stop monitoring by

I could stop monitoring by destroying netsupport process, but it's not legal option cuz the admin prevent me from this option.

all what i need is prevent admin from stealing (copying) from my USB stick.

where's the " bug " in this

where's the " bug " in this ?
It seems like everything is working as the network-owner intended ?
From a security point of view (yours)the entire network is compromised
and can not be trusted with your private data.

actually there isn't

actually there isn't programming bug, but there is security weakness in the usage of portable package through USB stick cuz the admin can copy all my personal data although i didn't make a share for my drive by OS privileges.

So portable package need a way to stop logging-in through network to it's drive.

from my side i tried to solve this weakness but i failed, i tried to stop logging-in the adim by preventing its usage port, but it didn't work cuz this way make my PC disconnected with the network, which mean i can't use internet.

Huh?

What you are saying makes absolutely no sense. That's not a crack on your poor english by the way Wink

It has nothing to do with portable apps. There is nothing you can do to prevent the network admin from monitoring you.

Any application, wether portable or not is being monitored on your network.

Sorry.
