WN12-00-000009-02 - Members of the Backup Operators group must have separate accounts for backup duties and normal operational tasks.


Backup Operators are able to read and write to any file in the system, regardless of the rights assigned to it. Backup and restore rights permit users to circumvent the file access restrictions present on NTFS disk drives for backup and restore purposes. Members of the Backup Operators group must have separate logon accounts for performing backup duties.

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


Ensure each member of the Backup Operators group has separate accounts for backup functions and standard user functions.
