Issue



Package Server shares located at <servername>\PkgSvrHostF$ and <servername>\f$\program files\altiris\package delivery both maintain the Everyone group with full share and full NTFS permissions, even if package access credentials have been applied. Can these permissions be locked down to at least read to eliminate security vulnerability? 

Solution



Yes. Setting the Everyone group's NTFS permissions to read in these locations will not affect operation of the Package Server.
