comment In Windows 2008 should I rename the Administrator account or disable it?
@Kev: It's not so difficult from outside the box, either. You know how it starts and ends, and you can get the middle from sniffing.

@Kev: It's not exactly difficult to get the SID of the admin.

@user48838: Yes, you'd usually want to enable auditing, to detect any attempts to log in as "Administrator".

It changes the name, but not the SID, so I'm not sure it's a real win. The alternative is to rename the administrator account and disable it, then rename the guest account to "Administrator".

comment Which bots and spiders should I block in robots.txt?
That was an erroneous downvote. The whole point is that a crawler can ignore robots.txt, but CAPTCHA codes will at least slow it down, if not block it outright. Thank you for being wrong.

Yes, that's exactly right, although I was thinking more of the standard trick of directory compilers (phone books, etc) of adding a small number of fake entries so as to detect wholesale theft.

Interesting point. I wonder if it makes sense to add a fake page to the Disallow list whose sole purpose is to catch such bots in the act so that they can be automatically blocked.

This is exactly what's needed: you've identified the problem and pointed at the solutions. Good detective work.
