Hello everyone,
i am working on a practice image of Windows server 2003 through VM-ware, the roll of the server is a Backup/ archive server. What i have to do is secure all basic vulnerabilities. such as those you would find in msconfig and within the services. It is very important that i do not mess up. i am requesting any and all information pertaining to what i have listed above. It would be greatly appreciated if someone had a vulnerabilities list of all those to disable. and so on.
thank you very much =]
