Re: VERY INTEREEESTING!!!
@REISEN: It's been a while, but I seem to remember that if you del'd or deltree'd a file or directory, it was still in memory until you turned off the computer or rebooted -- and could be undeleted as such. Is my memory mistaken?

(Or perhaps that was only in a later version?)

Re: VERY INTEREEESTING!!!
Server - not really on subject. Anybody who remembers NOVELL and DOS.  Avon in Suffern NY was a client of Microage of Mahwah and one day the CNE admin left his desk for coffee - terminal on, admin rights and a user wlaked by, thought he could use DELTREE to clean off some folders on his assigned F drive ... which he did, sitting at the admin console on the ROOT DRIVE OF THE NOVELL SERVER.

DELLTREE did what it was told to do and wiped the server off the face of the earth in 5 seconds.,

They were glad for backups.

Re: VERY INTEREEESTING!!!
> Local Admin right should NEVER be granted

Reminds me of a colleague telling me about an organization he went into where -- because they were out of workstations -- they let the temp use the main server for his computer!

That was quickly changed once AIM and ICQ and a bunch of games were found downloaded on the server.

VERY INTEREEESTING!!!
To quote old Arte Joohnson on LAUGH IN.  Actually good stuff.  There was a horrendous hack open on HP Officejet printers that involved a long google search string and would display internal web page of ANY officejet printer around the world!!   IP address displayed too - open door for a hacker.  Local Admin right should NEVER be granted - closes down local app installatoin.    Updates and PATCHES are also mandatory.
