    Authentication: Underappreciated Security Risk (5+

    During a recent bout of frustration publishing a FrontPage web to an IIS4.x server, I looked into the IE Authentication/Logon settings more closely. The following table (from Setting Up Security Zones) shows the default settings for Authentication/Logon.

    Thanks for the information. I never liked using those sliders any way -- and especially NOT the Cookie Privacy slider in IE6. If you use Custom settings, this is the area to look for on the Security tab.

    Thanks for the link re. cookies - bed time reading???! - but seriously, for those of us with kids starting to surf heavily, such briefings are invaluable. Does anybody have experience of utilities such as Tiny Trojan Trap which help audit and clean up active content / cookie activity?

    FWIW Trojan Trap looks promising, but needs (fiddly!!) <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15> custom configuration for a user to realise its full capabilites. <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> would be good, too...........
