    You can make the argument that the logon types should have
    been exposed at the SSPI layer as well, but the number of
    apps doing netowrk style auth using SSPI dwarf the number
    channeling some interactive access like telnet. Regardless,
    most everything in system32 should be readable:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>cacls ntdll.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntdll.dll BUILTIN\Users:R
                                  BUILTIN\Power Users:R
                                  NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:F

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>net localgroup users
    Alias name users
    Comment Users are prevented from making accidental or intentional
    wide changes. Thus, Users can run certified applications, but not most
    legacy a


    HOME\Domain Users
    NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users

    Unless you have mucked with the local groups or ACLs in some way, every
    principal that is authenticated to the system should have read access in
