comment Is there a way to block Ultrasurf OR can I have McAfee nuke it?
Hello Monsuco and welcome to Security.SE. Unfortunately it almost impossible to protect computers to which adversaries have physical access to. Furthermore, your adversaries have a lot of time, motivation and probably technology skills. I suggest to approach this issue from a social angle: Create a set of rules for acceptable use of school property with realistic (!) consequences for concrete types of misuse.

comment LDAP vs MySQL for Usernames and Passwords
One very common mistake with authenticating against an LDAP server is not paying attention to anonymous binds. Many LDAP servers return success on an authentication attempt with an empty password, regardless of the username.

comment What's the use of making users use digits, uppercase-lowercase combination password if the passwords are hashed?
Mr. Alien, I think this is a very valid question and therefore I prefer not to delete it. I removed the reference to a hash-function which is not suitable for hashing password. This may be one of the reasons for the downvotes. Please have a look at security.stackexchange.com/q/15910/665 regarding password hashing algorithms.
