Removing admin rights mitigates 90 percent of Windows 7 vulnerabilities

Posted on Wednesday, March 31 2010 @ 03:06:13 CEST by

CNET reports that configuring Windows for standard user rather than administrator mitigated a significant amount of vulnerabilities:
Ninety percent of critical Microsoft Windows 7 vulnerabilities can be mitigated by configuring the operating system for standard user rather than administrator, according to a new report released on Monday.

Removing administrator rights would also protect against exploitation of all of the Office holes reported last year, 94 percent of Internet Explorer flaws and 100 percent of IE 8 flaws reported last year, and 64 percent of all Microsoft vulnerabilities reported in that time period, according to BeyondTrust's 2009 Microsoft Vulnerability Analysis (PDF).
