Shutdown your computer via e-mail using Python

##~ Veysel Nantu import poplib import time import subprocess from email import parser from datetime import datetime #------------------------------------- # Send an e-mail to a g-mail address that will shutdown the computer # # Acceptable format: SHUTDOWN YOURSELF {DATE} # Acceptable DATE format: YEAR-MONTH-DAY # Example: SHUTDOWN YOURSELF 2016-26-05 # # To avoid from unknown shutdown mails # It will check later if the mail is coming from a specific address # So that only one e-mail address can shutdown your computer # And you will decide that e-mail address #------------------------------------- #check the mail is came from the correct address # for example; # assume you enter '' to from_addr # it will check it later if the mail is coming from '' from_addr = input ("From address: ") while True: #connect gmail pop_conn = poplib.POP3_SSL('') #make sure we are connected to POP, get POP-WELCOME message print ("\n"+str(pop_conn.getwelcome())[6:50]) pop_conn.user('') #e-mail address pop_conn.pass_('my_mail_password') #password #check how many mails we have mail_info = pop_conn.stat() print ("Number of new emails: %s (%s bytes)" % mail_info) nmails = mail_info[0] #search for SUBJECT-FROM-DATE elements in the mails for i in range(nmails): for email in pop_conn.retr(i+1): try: for mail in email: if "Subject" in str(mail): t = str(mail) if "From" in str(mail): fr = str(mail) if "Date" in str(mail): dt = str(mail) except: #there are integers in the mails, simply pass the errors pass #command checker command = "SHUTDOWN YOURSELF" #slice all SUBJECT from mail bolt = t[2:-1] try: #slice SUBJECT's elements in a list boltapply = bolt.split(" ")[1]+ " " + bolt.split(" ")[2] + " " + bolt.split(" ")[3] #slice 'boltapply' to check if they are same with COMMAND boltapply_subject = boltapply.split(" ")[0]+ " " + boltapply.split(" ")[1] #slice 'boltapply' - get date part boltapply_date = boltapply.split(" ")[-1] #find current time timee = #current day - order: YEAR-MONTH-DAY timee_edit = str(timee.year)+"-"+"{:0>2}".format(str(timee.month))+"-"+str( #current time - order: HOUR-MINUTE timee_hour = str(timee.hour) + "." + str(timee.minute ) #slice 'dt' from MAIL - 'dt' is the date part from the MAILS dt_Edit = dt.split(" ")[5].split(":")[0] + "." + dt.split(" ")[5].split(":")[1] #check where are the MAILS from #so we can be sure it's from the address that we input above from_read = fr.split(" ")[-1].split("<")[1].split(">")[0] #first, check if YEAR-MONTH-DAY order is the same as today's DATE if boltapply_date == timee_edit: #then check if the MAIL sent before 1 HOUR, command(SHUTDOWN YOURSELF) is same as SUBJECT and is the mail came from CORRECT ADDRESS('from_addr') if - int(dt.split(" ")[5].split(":")[0]) == 0 and - int(dt.split(" ")[5].split(":")[1]) <= 59 and command == boltapply_subject and from_read == from_addr: #if all requirements are met, call "subprocess 'shutdown.exe'" and shutdown the computer in N seconds (it's 26 seconds now)["shutdown.exe","-f","-s","-t","26"]) except: #if SUBJECT is in wrong order #if there is no SUBJECT #if there is SUBJECT but there is no DATE #pass it # for example; # a subject like 'SHUTDOWN YOURSELF 2016' will end up with a TypeError (see above we are slicing SUBJECT 'boltapply') pass #wait 40 seconds time.sleep(40)
