Automatically Look who is sharing file to Everyone

We asks users DO NOT share private/confidential files to "EVERYONE" and we need to make sure that.

Is there any program can scan and create a list of "Everyone Accessible" files on the whole network? This will make my lift much easier.

You could use cacls.exe to do that, it even works recursively in directory trees...

Thanks JKR,

But I may need to make my target clear:
I would like a tool to check all shared file/folder on the whole network. A sample report on my mind is like this:
-----------
The following folders are opened to Everyone Access:

[Machine A]
\share
\Confidential
\Photo

[Machine B]
\TeamFile

[Macine C]

I would have to say no. Even a third party application would probably not do that "out of the box". You would need the application to be very open-ended and make a lot of modifications yourself...

Hyena from www.systemtools.com might be your best place to start though.

mrwolf,
Can you expand on that? Can you post the name of the application and where to get it?

Thanks

Please goto the below site

http://www.megasecurity.org/Scanners.html

and download SMB scanner.  The SMB scanner will scan your entire network by ip address.  It will give you all the shares but no securiy/permission.  I hope this helps.
