An audit recently suggested that we rename the c:\winnt directory when installing new servers, to prevent hackers from accessing the system files.
What are the implications of doing this? Are there more negative consequences, than the sole security enhancement at stake? Personally I think that most hackers would know this by now anyway, and that a simple search on a system file should direct them to the desired folder.
I cannot find anything on Microsoft's site, so any suggestions, advice is highly appreciated.
