Here's an interesting one. Following the management buyout of my company and the upgrade of our Exchange 5.5 server to 2000, I was forced to add a local connection for incoming email to my server, which without first investing in a firewall (money constraints -duh!) we connected directly onto our internet LAN. The Exchange 2000 server was set up pretty much as defaults out of the box, although we did have a consultant in to do it. I have just been looking at some backup logs and it seems that at some time in the past a folder has appeared in \Exchsrvr\databases\Storage_Group_2 (where we store our databases). The folder is called "incoming" and is full of pirate software, MP3s and movies (about 20GBs of it). Can anyone explain how they got this stuff may have got onto my server?
