Rat In The House
I would like to start by saying I am not a computer programmer, and have pretty much zero knowledge of computer programming. However, I have a story that I think you may find interesting, and I coud use your help.
I believe one of my coworkers is using his computer to access information that he should not be able to. Since he has worked at our location, he has consistently found ways to give himself an advantage. In our line of work, we are paid by the job. He has always found ways around the system we are supposed to adhere to, to ensure he recieves as many of the better paying jobs as he can. Leaving the rest of us more of the lower paying jobs.
He is able to do this because he has found ways to access information that people in our position are not supposed to see. This enables him to see what jobs are available, and to avoid the ones he doesn't want.
He recently had computer problems, and was given a different one. I believe the computer he was given came from another location (call it Location X) in our organization. Earlier today, he was seen on a computer that wasn't his, looking at information he really had no reason to be viewing.
This upset a number of us. When he left for the day, he left his computer on, and the software our company uses open. I decided that since he had been looking at my information, I would take a look at his.
When I did, I reallized that I could see information I should not be allowed to access. It appears that he was signed into the software as an employee of Location X.
I could see information about the business of Location X that I shoud never have been able to view. I closed the program and logged in as myself (keep in mind I'm using my coworker's computer). I found I was not able to access the information any more. This tells me he must have obtained the username and password of someone who works at Location X.
My question: Is there a way he could have found the username and password for that program somewhere in the computer from Location X?
