Novell Overhypes Active Directory Bug

Novell Inc. this week pointed out a flaw in the way Microsoft Windows 2000's Active Directory (AD) handles security permissions for some objects. Microsoft quickly denied this bug existed, saying Novell had improperly configured its AD setup. I tested this in the InfoWorld Test Center and found that the bug exists, but only because Novell missed a security step.
