Lock User Accounts after 'n' Failed Login Attempts By limiting the number of failed login attempts, the risk of unauthorized system access via user password guessing, otherwise known as brute forcing, is reduced. Limits are imposed by locking the account. Setting a lockout expiration of 15 minutes is an effective deterrent against brute forcing that also makes allowances for legitimate mistakes b ...

Numeric Character in Passwords Use of a complex password helps to increase the time and resources required to compromise the password. Password complexity, or strength, is a measure of the effectiveness of a password in resisting attempts at guessing and brute-force attacks. Password complexity is one factor of several that determine how long it takes to crack a password. The more complex the pa ...

Maximum password lifetime restriction Any password, no matter how complex, can eventually be cracked. Therefore, passwords need to be changed periodically. One method of minimizing this risk is to use complex passwords and periodically change them. If the operating system does not limit the lifetime of passwords and force users to change their passwords, there is the risk that the operating syst ...

Prevent usage of previously used password Password complexity, or strength, is a measure of the effectiveness of a password in resisting attempts at guessing and brute-force attacks. If the information system or application allows the user to consecutively reuse their password when that password has exceeded its defined lifetime, the end result is a password that is not changed as per policy requ ...

Disable Automatic Actions for Blank CDs Applications should not be configured to launch automatically when a disk is inserted. This potentially circumvents anti virus software and allows malicious users to craft disks that can exploit user applications. Disabling Automatic Actions for blank CDs mitigates this risk.

Disable Automatic Actions for Blank DVDs Applications should not be configured to launch automatically when a disk is inserted. This potentially circumvents anti virus software and allows malicious users to craft disks that can exploit user applications. Disabling Automatic Actions for blank DVDs mitigates this risk.

Disable Automatic Actions for Music CDs Applications should not be configured to launch automatically when a disk is inserted. This potentially circumvents anti virus software and allows malicious users to craft disks that can exploit user applications. Disabling Automatic Actions for music CDs mitigates this risk.

Disable Automatic Actions for Picture CDs Applications should not be configured to launch automatically when a disk is inserted. This potentially circumvents anti virus software and allows malicious users to craft disks that can exploit user applications. Disabling Automatic Actions for picture CDs mitigates this risk.

Disable Automatic Actions for Video DVDs Applications should not be configured to launch automatically when a disk is inserted. This potentially circumvents anti virus software and allows malicious users to craft disks that can exploit user applications. Disabling Automatic Actions for video DVDs mitigates this risk.

Disable Automatic Logons When automatic logins are enabled, the default user account is automatically logged in at boot time without prompting the user for a password. Even if the screen is later locked, a malicious user would be able to reboot the computer in order to log in. Disabling automatic logins mitigates this risk.
