stupid stupid stupid
 
OK. Someone in our fine organization left the anonymous FTP site open
over the weekend (I'm not naming names) , and of course some unemployed
drug ridden teenage euro socialist (I'm assuming) with grims ping or some
other
such utility tagged me. So I'm trying to clean up the mess. I can delete
all those
evil little files and folders using a combination of DOS wildcards, UNC
notation
and the POSIX rm utility except for one. This one (named com6 and buried
about a gazillion levels down) gives me permission denied. The drive is
NTFS.
ChkDsk /f on reboot fixed some stuff, but still no joy. Except for the MSKB
articles about removing reserved word files there is very little I found
about the
subject.

Is there any hope for me or do I have to live with this stupid directory
tree until the next re-format?

try this site http://download.broadbandmedic.com and download Pocket
Killbox.
That helped me find and eliminate some files that were not even visible
as an admin with show hidden and system files set. These critters were
invisible to
everything but the killbox program.

Yeah, I know. It is pretty funny.

And it wouldn't be so bad if they had left some decent
DVD's behind, but just some new age punk music crap.

A little of topic, but relevant to security: a university in Ontario got
hacked recently, and the hacker was able to record user's keystrokes for
later use. User info, passwords, bank account numbers, payroll info, all
compromised. The administrator (obviously non-IT) said this: "We do what
everybody else does when it comes to computer security, but whoever it was
still broke in. I'm shocked". This went on unchecked for 7 months. So who's
to blame, the doofus admin without a clue, or his IT staff, who failed
miserably (I'd like to think they were contrained by budgeting, but it still
isn't an excuse) and gave the admin a false sense of security (pun
intended)? "We do what everybody else does..." is a classic.

For most companies "We do what everybody else does..." means, we care a lot
for security but we rather buy a shiny new wireless PDA for our execs than
spending a small percentage of that for our system security.
