While trying to improve my machine's security by switching to a non-Admin user (also known as least-privileged user accounts or limited-user accounts), i was (am) exploring many useful resources on the web:
- The weblog of Dirk Primbs, namely it's non-admin postings - that's where the journey started (well it started at the NCC 2005 when Mario and Dirk promoted non-admin users - did you know, that nearly almost all security holes in Internet Explorer only appear/"work" if you're running your machine as admin?)
- The non-admin Wiki is a community site for PC users who want to run as non-administrator
- "The .NET Developer's Guide to Windows Security" is the complete and free of charge wiki-version of Keith Browns Book "The .NET Developer's Guide to Windows Security"
- "Developing as non-Admin with VS.NET 2003" posting by Anil John
- "How To: Secure Your Developer Workstation" at MSDN Online
- "Developing Software in Visual Studio .NET with Non-Administrative Privileges" also MSDN Online
- "MakeMeAdmin - temporary admin for your Limited User account" a command line tool, that allows you to log on as Admin while you're logged on as non-admin.
- Aaron Margosis' non-admin postings
- to be continued...
