Hi,

I have a child who is bring accused of "hacking" into her online school teacher account.  This is what happened...
She attempted to login to her account to start her class and she was greeted as TEACHER instead of her name.
She attempted it two more times with the same results.  The FOURTH time she attempted to logon she was finally able to access her account.  She uses a username and password to access her online course.

This school is trying to prove that she actually "hacked" into their teacher access.  The teacher access is actually a numerical code.

Can you suggest software that I can use to check her internet activity on her MacBook?  How can I help her?

Thanks.

You may not be able to do this retrospectively - you would ordinarily have some behaviour logging software installed before this event.

For the school to prove anything, though, they would need to provide definitive evidence of what the student is being accused of (e.g. webserver records/logs or firewall logs with an IP address which can be definitively proved to be assigned to the computer from which the alleged hacks took place).  After all, what is the basis of their accusations?
