Shared Domain folders, everyone has access.
Posted on 2004-09-15
First off, i did not set up the domain at my company. I just have a question about file security. We have about 10 servers, (one at each location) that we use for different software, and as domain controllers. We also have shared files on each server for stuff that we need to install on clients. The problem is, anyone who had domain user rigts on the domain, can get into these shares if they know the svr name or ip. Since i use "run" to access them, alot of times they just just click run and can see the history. This hasent been a problem, but we are seeing some questionable files showing up on our servers. Our fear is that it could be used as a file dump.
How can we add a simple password to these directories, so that when i we try and get access to these particular files, it will ask for a password?
The trick is that some software uses shared files on these servers, these apps need FULL access to the directories. Should I just make those particular folders hidden?
