DATE: COMMAND SOURCE: AUTHOR: registrey SYSTEMS AFFECTED Win NT 3.5, 3.51, 4.0 PROBLEM This text was found on ex Bill Stout's pages about NT security. Files with '.reg' extention automatically write to the registry with current user privileges on open. This is a default action for '.reg' with File Explorer, the registry by default allows the group 'Everyone' access to many parts of the registry. EXPLOIT SOLUTION Change permission and check for group 'Everyone'. If not needed, change default permissions for user to prevent this security hole.
