I have many COM objects available on my servers, some of these can  be used to do pretty much anything on the system - I need to implement some sort of security as I can't allow limited users to execute (for example) PHP scripts which then use COM objects to take control of the system.
The problem is system-wide, and exploitable through many different programming languages; unfortunately several of the COM objects to not have their own security mechanisms.

Is there a way of assigning access permissions to the COM registry?
