Hi!

As we all know use of Access database for writing or use of script for uploading files to a certain directory requires that IIS Guest Account has WRITE privileges on the specific folder.
That certainly is a security risk - do you have any advice how to minimise that risk?

Thanks,
Bostjan

Best option is to put the directory for uploads and databases outside of the sites root directory.
