[Dshield] More not good stuff.

When I set up my server, I did the following things:

EVERYONE gets read-only access to \
EVERYONE gets deny write access to \winnt
IUSR_<machinename> gets deny to \
IUSR_<machinename> gets readonly to \inetpub (\inetpub cannot inherit)
SYSTEM gets read-only access to \inetpub\scripts (this prohibits even the 
SYSTEM account from copying a file into that directory)
EVERYONE gets granted no access to \inetpub\scripts

that tied down things quite a bit.  There are some more, but you get the 
general idea.  This way even if there was a vulerability, no damage could 
be done.

here's a decent source on how to tie things down as well:
