Windows 2003 Default NTFS Permission
This is not a tutorial but I think it does deserve to be post here because the information could prove very useful. If a mod wants to move it, feel free.
Iím a big fan of NTFS permission. I love to know all the NTFS permission that my system has. A while ago, I found a nice utility from Microsoft call XCACLS.VBS. XCACLS allow you to output and change all the NTFS permission in a command prompt. For more information, you can check http://support.microsoft.com/?id=825751
Today, I was installing a new a Windows 2003 Server. As soon that I finished the installation, I ran XCACLS and ask him to output me all the NTFS permission of all folder and file on my C: (xcacls.vbs c:\*.* /T >> Log.txt )
Iím posting here the output file (Log.txt) in hoping it can help people who need to know the default NTFS permission when tweaking NTFS permission. Good Luck!

Yes, and when you're done with the output and realize that you need to ratchet down the box pronto, go grab everyone2user. A tool that changes all ACLs from everyone to user just as the name suggests. This gives you a real nice starting point in securing a Windoze box.
