Windows 2000 Security Issues

Microsoft Windows 2000 is rapidly replacing Windows NT in internal and external server installations. There is little doubt that Windows 2000 will become one of the most prevalent (if not the most prevalent) operating system across the Internet.

It is obvious that Windows 2000 will be found in traditional Windows NT roles such as file, print, and database servers for internal use and Web and application server for Internet use. Additional features, such as a telnet server, may push Windows 2000 into functions that have been reserved for Unix systems.

However it may be used, it is clear that Windows 2000 will store and operate on sensitive information.
