I have a failed DB restore triggered by an unknown user

Is there a way to get the security information about who ran a failed DB restore in SQL? We are currently dealing with this situation where somebody ran a DB restore that got failed, but we can seem to find who that person is.

It may still be stored in the default trace...

To get the trace name:

SELECT * FROM ::fn_trace_getinfo(default)  

To view the contents :

SELECT * FROM fn_trace_gettable('C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\LOG\log_122.trc', default)
