Microsoft Windows SMB Guest Account Local User Access


New Life Form
We did a nessus scan for the a PCI certification and we got " Microsoft Windows SMB Guest Account Local User Access" as a vulnerability for ossim.

As far as my knowledge goes, the smb is used for remote installation of ossec clients, but im not sure if there is any other vital service that uses SMB.

Is there a way to disable smb??  we dont mind if clients have to be installed manually for each client after the change.

Thank you

  • wouldn't you just disable the guest account all together? that way, a share can not be acted by the guest account, I think thats the main problem?
