Hi martinbjlee,

Run the Microsoft Baseline Security Tool to see if you are well protected or not.
IUSR user is used by IIS and I think its just the IIS process that logs on not a user but run the MBSA tool.

Cheers!

The IUSR_Server account is the generic account used to access resources over HTTP that the server is providing.  This account should not be used to access anything but web-content.  If this server is running IIS 5.0, then you must consider running the IIS lock-down tool to secure Windows 2000 and IIS.

A better option would be to ugrade your installation to Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6.0.

The IIS lock-down tool can be downloaded from Microsoft's web-site.  

Try:  http://www.google.com/microsoft  and search for the IIS lock-down tool.  I am sorry, I don't know the exact URL.

I would start by determining the group membership the IUSR account has involvment.  Take the critical areas of the filesystem and make sure that user account and it's groups do not have unauthorized access to that filesystem.  The IIS lock-down tool will help to do exactly that.

Please don't delete the IUSR account, otherwise your web server won't work, and IIS will undoubtedly need reinstalling!
MSBA 2.0 is a good start - but think about other things too -ie physical security, policies, procedures, run regular vulnerability scans, as MSBA alone will not offer you compelte protection.
