On the other hand, users setting up their own
modems at their desks is virtually impossible to
"implement, configure, and manage/monitor
Actually, it's not all that difficult. Configure the
phone switch such that those dial-out lines that you
do need do not havd DiDs, and cannot be dialed into.
Then, get yourself something like my mdmchk.pl to scan
for installed modem drivers on desktops.
The "Lioten" worm that struck in early December used
a short list of trivial passwords such as "12345".
Another excellent example of how a relatively 'dumb'
piece of computer code can run the Internet and
outsmart the admins...
