Case Scenario Exercise

 < Day Day Up > 



Your chief security officer is concerned about recent news reports of a virus. After a computer on an internal network is infected, the virus spreads by scanning all the IP addresses on the subnet for open shares. It then attempts to propagate itself into those shares using the Anonymous Logon credentials. You want to reduce your exposure to this virus, as the requirements below outline.

Even though anonymous users are not members of the Everyone group in Windows Server 2003, you have some applications that require anonymous access to shares on a computer named Computer3. To allow them to access the shares, you have enabled the Network Access: Let Everyone Permissions Apply To Anonymous Users option, as shown in Figure 1.15.
