Last Modified: 2008-02-01
Hi all, I'm assigned the task of securing a standalone windows 2003 server. I'm more interested in finding out what are the unnecessary services that can be turned off. It will function only as a web server for now. Can't really find any useful info on the web that identify particular services to turn off. Appreciate if you guys can help or point me in the right direction. Is there any template that I can follow
