It's true, Windows is a sieve of security holes. The best thing that MacOS does is make you authenticate before you can do anything. For some reason, Mac users don't mind that. When Vista implemented the same system, the howls of protest were audible from space. WHY DO I HAVE TO KEEP TYPING MY PASSWORD!? Feckless idiots.


It really doesn't help though when you have a support team that insist on keep asking users what their passwords are, and when they set up a new PC for them, go out of their way to get rid of as much security as possible.

Give users admin rights whether they need it or not, disable UAC, install VNC and set the password to the company name, and turn off the firewalls!
What could possibly go wrong?

*twitches*


Yep. I'm *so* annoyed I've not written down everything that just stopped me in my tracks when I found it. Nobody would believe it could all be true.

Shouldn't all that stuff be locked down with group policy?

Yep, and it's been on the list of things to do since about the second week there. Unfortunately the list gets longer every time I look at a different system and find more problems and I can't fix them fast enough :(

The biggest problem will be changing the expectations of the users. "Why can't I install this program? I could before"
