audit remotely created files


We are facing a worm that is copying files to shared folders.
But to find the source that is spreading the files I want to log the source who is creating these files.

I've tried using process monitor from sysinternals but this tool only seems to log files that are created localy and not from a remote source.

What other possibilities are there to log a remote source trying to create/copy files?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Under the security properties of a target system assign Creator/Owner full rights to the directories it creates. When viewing the properties of directories and files you will notice a user has been assigned rights specifically. That should help in narrowing down which account is compromised.
