Subject: XP Remote Desktop Remote Activation

Would access to command shell be accomplished via the recent ZoneID hole if
such Administration password access is not available? Or perhaps even with
the launching
Of the MS04-028 exploit? Of course any Terminal usage on home pc's are
noticed because users
are locked out. Now terminal servers are a differnet story but user
intervention is still needed.

thank you

<|>XP Remote Desktop Remote Activation
<|>Windows XP Professional provides a service called Remote Desktop,
<|>which allows a user to remotely control the desktop as if he or she
<|>were in front of the system locally (ala VNC, pcAnywhere, etc.).
<|>By default, Remote Desktop is shipped with this service 
<|>turned off and
<|>only the Administrator is allowed access to this service.  It is
<|>possible, however, to modify a series of registry keys that may allow
<|>a malicious user who has already gained a command shell to activate
<|>Remote Desktop and add a user they have created for 
<|>themselves as well
<|>as to hide that user so that it will not show up as a user in the
<|>Remote Desktop user list.  The instructions for this are attached. 
<|>Additionally, I have listed a sample .reg file of the type that is
<|>discussed in the instructions below.
