Re: Leveraging search engines against FrontPage enabled websites

        After rather quickly discovering more than a dozen websites within less
than half an hour using the _vti_inf.html method. I decided to see if the
Microsoft Management Console (MMC) would provide the same results as did
the FP Explorer. I was able to connect and view what particular services
were being used by the MMC for a few of the websites. Thankfully, I did
recieve "Access Denied" warnings and "Network name not found" when trying
to view the properties for those services.
        I'm curious if anyone else has taken this apporach. Or tried different
methods using the same tools. As it could lead to a serious problem. There
are huge holes waiting to happen to people if a remote MMC can be used on a
misconfigured FP enabled webserver.

Note: I have attempted to contact those webmasters whos sites proved
