Can Windows Shared Folder attributes be changed remotely?
Posted on 2013-02-04
I'm fighting the flu right now, so brain...slow...
Hopefully you can help me wrap my brain around this.
I have a small network that I administer. It has a SBS2003 server. I got a call today that when they go in the Network Share nothing is there.
So I log on remotely and sure enough, the attributes on the Network Share folder are RHS. Obviously a virus has changed the attributes.
What I'm trying to wrap my brain around is whether the virus HAS to be on the server or whether it could be on one of the workstations. In other words, is it possible to change the attributes of a Shared folder from a remote machine?
