GUEST account risks
Posted on 2014-03-20
In relation to the guest account on SQL Server, what are the risks in enabling this on user databases? If you already trust everyone with a SQL level logon whereby the databases are housed?
And secondly, do you access the database via the GUEST account, or your actual SQL login. For example if auditing was enabled, and a user acessed a database via the guest account, would any access/amendments made to the database going to be in the audit logs under the GUEST account. I wasnt sure if this is the main risk, i.e. accountability?
