how-to detect password changes
Posted on 2002-06-10
I want to detect when a user has changed his password, so I can display a message (the message is a .exe and contains the security consideretions of my company).
I think two ideas, but (if exists) I need one simplest than mines! (I have a WinNT4 domain)
Here is what I think:
1. Place ADSI code in my .exe so -when it executes via login script- it could detect if the user has changed his password. Problems: I have Win95 worksations, so I need to deploy ADSI. Also I don't know yet if ADSI provides me the properties that I need.
2. Place a service in the PDC so it could detect the "change password event" in the security event viewer.
Thanks in advance.
