Write up a decently detailed plan for migrating each of the running
services off the machines onto newly installed, secure boxes. You
trust those machines, you can't really trust the previous
administrator(s), and you can't trust what you don't know.
I love the idea. Trouble is, I bet in a hostile
environment where the management won't acknowledge security
risks until they got hacked (and then probably blaming the
sysadmin), there won't be any resources to be got for aquiring
"newly installed, secure boxes".
Just another rant. I know.
