    Exclamation Write privileges and security risk

    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.
