Review of Least Privilege Security Posted
Amazon.com just posted my four star review of Least Privilege Security for Windows 7, Vista and XP by Russell Smith. From the review:
Russell Smith's Least Privilege Security for Windows 7, Vista, and XP (LPS) is a helpful contribution to the toolbox of many enterprise system administrators. Numerous organizations are finally realizing that the Internet is too hostile an environment to let normal users function with elevated privileges. Although by no means a panacea for preventing intrusions, users operating with least privilege are somewhat more able to resist some attack vectors. Beyond resisting attacks, users operating with least privilege are more likely to meet organizational rules. Thanks to LPS, administrators running Windows 7, Vista, and XP can apply the author's lessons and guidance to their own environment.
