Per the BC Forum/Discussion/Message Boards Rules, discussing methods of bypassing security measures is prohibited. Specifically this rule:

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.

In most school environments, the IT Department implements specific policies and procedures for the use of computer equipment and related resources. These official procedures are designed and implemented to provide security and certain restrictions to protect the network. This allows all users to safely use school resources with minimum risk of malware infection, illegal software, and exposure to inappropriate Internet sites or other prohibited activity. If you have an issue, then you need to resolve it with the IT staff or school administrators. We will not permit discussion of or assist with attempts to circumvent these policies or any security safeguards.
