There's a couple of links on my site that will give you some info on
various windows 2k attacks, have a lok under the hacking links.

Hello there.

I've just installed win2k pro on an ntfs drive, I'm running zonealarm
and AVG antivirus, and not much else. (no service packs, patches,
upgrades or anything else like that)

Does anyone have any information on common attacks for local
priviledge escalation, and ways to secure against these?

The sort of thing I'm looking for is a detail of an attack, followed
by the procedure(s) I would use to:

a) recover from it if neccessary
b) thwart future attacks of it's type.

I basically want to swap roles between hacker and sysadmin so I can
learn more about the best of both worlds.

The box is not connected to the net.

many thanks,
