    Hi Everyone,

    With all of the great help that I got from this newsgroup
    I was able to install SBS 2003 & a Firewall. Now it's time
    to test to see if it's secure & how secure, any
    suggestions on software to hack my own server ?

    Thanks,

    Gary Horne

    Hmm...

    I'd download Nmap, and just look at doing portscans to see how ISA handles
    them.

    Did some upgrade work on the network of an Accountant client on the
    weekend, including some security hardening. after discussions with the
    partners re the implications of such confidential data going astray, or
    their network/records being compromised.

    Called in to pick up the partners for lunch ( their buy ) and just had
    a quick nose around to see how things were working while waiting for
    them to get clear.

    I was soooo pleased to see that one of the book-keepers had their
    passphrase stuck to the top of the Monitor in Inch high letters (
    including breakout Notes indicating the Numeric replacements for O and
    I ) with their back to the door where any passer by could see over their
    shoulders both the password and any work/data that they were entering.

    ....just glad they are not -my- accountants.

    Better than the password just being set to nul, "pass", or the users name.
