Isn't there a way to monitor whats going on?    I thought that was possible
on PC's.   I know on UNIX, you can implement code to "monitor" hostile code and "Jail" it.   I'm no expert on Windows,  so don't really know what's possible,  but now that you have me thinking,  windows is a "closed" system,  and guess a lot of effort is required to do it.

right...  i thought i mentioned the Honeynet project in my earlier posting.

Kewl...  I wonder if it would be of use in this case.

How are you using it?
