Hello everyone I used to have a DaniWeb account a long time ago but can't remember the old login or email address I used but anyway i'm glad i'm back and i miss everyone here. Hugs to all the computer techies!!
ok ok ok.. uhm, uhm,...
At work we have a Active Directory environment - Windows Server 2003 and pc's are XP regular - AD domain - etc etc.
in the past I used to just ping a host name get IP make sure it's on the network then I would go to my Start>Run> \\10.48.32.36\c$
And vwalla - i can view and have full control a collegues pc! I work in the Help desk of my company - and so my account is a member of a group that is a member of each local admininistrator group.
if a log on dialogue box appears sometimes i just key in \\10.48.32.36\administrator and the local admin pw.
How do I protect my own computer from someone doing this to me? Or can I suggest to the Administrators to do some policy that they can enforce to protect everyone's pc from someone like me.
