WN12-00-000190 - Orphaned security identifiers (SIDs) must be removed from user rights on Windows 2012 / 2012 R2.


Accounts or groups given rights on a system may show up as unresolved SIDs for various reasons including deletion of the accounts or groups. If the account or group objects are reanimated, there is a potential they may still have rights no longer intended. Valid domain accounts or groups may also show up as unresolved SIDs if a connection to the domain cannot be established for some reason.

NOTE: Nessus has provided the target output to assist in reviewing the benchmark to ensure target compliance.


Remove any unresolved SIDs found in User Rights assignments and determined to not be for currently valid accounts or groups by removing the accounts or groups from the appropriate group policy.
