Proof that LUA makes you safer
I was reading a post over at AdminFoo today when Bryan showed an interesting graphic taken from eWeek Magazine that shows how effective LUA really is in the midst of all the current forms of malware and spyware in the field these days. I thought I would post it for my readers to check out.
This is pretty compelling evidence that by using least privilege you can significantly reduce the risk to your computing environments by eliminating the ability for malware to take hold on your system. Take another look at Bryan's post to also get some insight on the original article, and some recommendations he has on how you can use tools like Supsu for LUA now.
And of course, you HAVE read "Applying the Principle of Least Privilege to User Accounts on Windows XP" published by the Microsoft Solutions for Security and Compliance group (MSSC) haven't you?Posted by SilverStr at February 7, 2006 02:11 PM | TrackBack
