Send alert while using storage devices.

I m working in a IT company where we have more than 500 desktops running ubuntu. We also use Fedora 16. Its a database company, so using of storage device is restricted. As a precaution the system should send an alert to the machine if he/she uses a usb storage devices in his system. Is it possible? If yes can any one explain it in detail pls?

We are using FC16 edition with 2 GB Ram & Dual Core processor.

Re: Send alert while using storage devices.

Although I'm not familiar with it, the USB devices (specifically disks/memory sticks) have rules (/etc/udev/rules.d) that define what is to be done. Among the actions for the rules is "RUN", which is to run a program/script when that device is detected.

What the parameters are that can be sent should be determinable from other rules - such as being plugged in, removed...

Check the manpage on "udevadm".
