A badly implemented Active Directory environment can be a prime target for hackers according to Phil Cracknell, a security consultant at NetSecurity. According to an article, Cracknell took the opportunity at the last Defcon conference to show examples of weakened desktop security due to poor configuration of the directory software. For example, he had seen situations where a reboot and removal of the network cable left a PC operating with just the desktop security policies, meaning that restrictions on user access that were written into Active Directory no longer applied.

  • Would this be a possibility

    How about take a group policy from a machine that has no editing on it and place on floppy and open with the group policy editor while logged into local machine save and over write the active directory policy on the local machine. Then plug in cable see whats up. Just have to log onto network shares ect also make the winnt directory read only. and only a local user has permission to change. Food for thought.
