It guy hacker
I have my own business and a spouse to an employee set up our computers. When we first turn on our computers there is a place for employees to log in and a place for the IT guy to put his password in...problem is his spouse, one of my employees has been given her husbands access to our computers and she likes to go in our computers and change data and then sits back and laughs behind our backs while we have to fix it all. I want to remove the IT guys log in password area, also want to delete him from being the IT guy and change all passwords so he or his wife can't go on our computers again. Am also concerned because one day another employee said she couldnt remember her password to log on her computer and IT guy said not to worry because he could get into any computer he wanted and find every password ever used on that computer..so I am worried that even if I delete his info he will still be able to log onto our computers after hours and get right back in after finding all the employees passowrds....HELP ME FAST!!!!! We also think he has been bringing an external hard drive to the business after hours and taking all our info back home with him. This is possible, right. We also know they have been following us at home via logmein...HELP

It may be too late to do much about it now. The only way any computer can be protected is by restriction of access. So long as he can get to that machine, any IT guy should find passwords a minor hurdle to accessing a machine. I never even ask for customers' passwords when they bring a machine for repair.

Fire him and his wife and start from scratch with security. Be careful who you let in next time.

(By the way, a "hacker" is not by definition a bad guy. A hacker is a guy who gets down into the guts of the machine or code. There are good hackers and bad hackers.)
