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.


Create separate accounts for backup operations for users with this privilege.
