As far as what this site is saying, it *CAN* work only if there is
no security in place for the local box. And only on certain version of
98 if i remember correctly. However, win 98 is full of holes, so there
is not need to attack it at layer 1.
If the boxes are moderen at all, they will run win xp or even better
ubuntu or something of that sort. In XP mode, if they are using XP home
and failed to setup an admin password, you can just go into safe mode as
admin (no authentication required) and setup your local admin acct and
go from there. XP pro won't let you do that. Ubuntu, well im not getting
into that, but you can, and should, disable run level 1 at boot.
Basicaly it boils down to this, could this have happened? Yes. If the
admin has shit one clue could it happen? No. Start looking at layer 7
