    Question Domain Admin Access...

    I work for a bank and we have a guy who is in our Operations department. He runs some software called Fundtech. This software requres domain admin access. I was running some reports and found that he had domain admin access and asked the network Manager about it. He said they tried messing with file permmisions and everything they could and couldnt get it to run without the Domain admin access.
    There has to be a registry entry or something i can change? can you gusy help me with this? what can i do to detrmine what needs to change? I am the new (no experiance) security admin and this is a problem in my eyes.

    Thanks, J

For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.

    Have you spent time with the program?
    What / Where does the program read/write to or from?

    What could it possible do that requires "domain" admin to run..??

    I have seen a few software packages that use local admin to cause less problems for
    lazy admins.

    What platform are you running?

    Does something run as a service?

    Does it write to AD or system files?

    Its just so hard to see a vendor selling such nonsense...

    call the vender yourself and find out the scoop, what have you got to loose. they probably have an old version of the software they dont want to pay to update. if your responsibe for what happens there you better find out and get them to state in writing that they have been told/warned about it because if something does go wrong it's you they'll blame...what do they know about security

    if you wanted to, you could disable interactive logon, so then the program can only use the access to what it needs on the network and the privalages won't be abused as easily, that is what we do when we use symntec ghost.
