[THIN] Re: Darn Command Prompt - was Re: Restrict Drive Access

Yes interesting.  I also disabled general users ability to run a command
prompt on our system
(my servers are W2K+SP3 MFXPe+FR3 on NT4 Domain) using the allInOne_v099.adm
system policy template file from thethin.net.  I also copied cmd.exe from
the same 2000 server and put it in the user home, double clicked on it from
Explorer and it opened.

What Poledit template are you using?

Interesting ....

I disabled general users ability to run a command prompt on our system
(W2K+SP3 MFXPa+FR2 on NT4 Domain) via a system policy.  Just tested putting
cmd.exe in test user's home dir and tried to run it from explorer - still
get "Command Prompt has been disabled by your administrator".  

Will have a look through the adm file when I get a change to see what key it
is setting.

I have the following registry key
(HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System\DisableCMD = 2) set to
"try" to disable a user's ability to open and run the command prompt.  The
scenario I can't get past is if a user places a copy of cmd.exe in their
personal directory and run it from a Citrix session.  The command prompt
runs and the user is able to circumvent my Hide Drives and Prevent Drive
Access settings.  Is there any way to avoid this from happening other than
using Appsec or other add-ons?

Have used it at virtually every client that had Citrix or Terminal Services.
It does prevent access to drives, which can be a problem for your app. I've
never seen a major problem as a result of using it.
