Problem in account lockout for domain users
Posted on 2009-04-13
We have a problem in our compnay where a virus hits our system called conficker. Symantec call it dwndp.B. We are still trying to recover from it . I followed up many instructions over the internet on how to remove this virus but still not completely resolved.
Another issue (My main problem) which is seems to be related to this virus that the accounts in our domain keeps locking out every minute ( ALL USERS ). Then, we decided to stop the account lock out policy from group policy until we can completely resolve the virus issue.
However, the accounts are still lockout. Is there any windows registry or some other techniques that this virus may did which let this account lockout still happen although we have changed the group policy.
Please assist me in this. Also if you know any perfect way to defeat this virus, I will appreciate that alot. LOUCKOUT + VIRUS = NIGHTMARE FOR IT ...... we are getting calls from staff every 10 seconds >>>> :(
