I hooked up a Windows 2000 box to my network (actually, it's on a T1 by
itself) and left it over the weekend. This machine has no special purpose
and i'm going to blow it up and reinstall as a web server here real soon.
In other words, there's nothing real special on this machine and it's not
attached to anything else.
What worries me is that someone uploaded a bunch of DivX files to share with
buddies, using this server (for a day or two) as an FTP server.
I have since disconnected the server from the T1, but i cannot delete the
1.6 Gigs of files this hacker uploaded. In fact, the Security properties of
the folder are missing! The only tabs available are General and Sharing,
and the folder shows NO information such as Size, Modified, Created, etc.
I'm trying to research this and learn from it to protect myself in the
future...anyone have any suggestions regarding resetting the permissions
properties for such a hacked folder? Or even deleting it? I want to find
out as much as possible before i blow up the server.
