I'm not a web-app guy but I'm the only one at my work that raised any objections about giving full permissions to the (anonymous) INETUSER account for the purposes of running an ASP.NET web-app in IIS. That's read, write, execute, special permissions, etc, for a webapp that reads (the db connection is read-only) from a SQL database. I'm thinking that this might not be the smartest choice for keeping the server secure.
Because I said, "hey, this might be a terrible idea," I was asked to do a risk assessment. Like I said, I basically have no knowledge of ASP.NET or web apps in general, but without knowing intimate details of the setup, can you guys tell me what kinds of issues should I be looking at here?
I'm a bit scared to give the anonymous internet user account FULL Permissions for the wwwroot\ directory.
Thanks for any help; I'm just looking for the big-ticket problems that are apparent to those more educated than me.
