    IIS 6 Glitch

    hey..my friend just discovered someting very disturbing
    while viewing a word document on an iis server he could save the file on the server
    once saved he could actually browse around on the account delete, upload, rename
    anything he really wanted
    he tried it on mine and it worked also
    not by ftp !
    just straight IIS account i guess

    in iis i disabled write
    but doesnt that mean php, asp scripts cannot write or create files?

    You can control permissions for different files and directories in the IIS Server manager in WS2k3. Depending on how you have it set up, you can allow php / asp scripts to write to files in certain directories as long as they have permission to do so, or are being authenticed as a certain user with certain permissions.
