unix "script" command (Security)

Has anyone had the opportunity to set up a profile utilizing the "script" command to capture input?

I am utilizing solaris 8 on sun servers.

I modified the /etc/profile to start "script" when the user logs in and stops upon log out. It will also follow the user when it traverses across systems.

The issue I am having is supressing the message when script starts and stops. ( Script started, file is typescript, Script done, file is typescript)
I don't want the users to know it is running.

If this is a duplicate post to anyone, (I didn't see any in FAQ) my apologies in advance.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

yepper....

I think because "script" gathers all of the info, the only way to get the comment stripped is to search the c code and recompile the binary. I am checking with my sun rep for the source.

Very interesting project though...

redirect std out and std err

You should be able to redirect std out and std err to null.

2> &1 /dev/null OR 2> /dev/null ... 1> /dev/null

I can't remember the syntax, but that is close.

> /dev/null 2>&1

or

2>&1 > /dev/null

Has the effect of piping 2 (std error) to 1 (std out) and then piping 1 (now both) to /dev/null

Update

I basically got the script.c binary and recompiled it to meet my needs.

The user will log into the system and never know that script is running.

Works great!

Thanks for all the replies.
