comment Check for backdoors in PHP scripts
+1 restore from backup. Without looking over every line of code, you can't be sure that you're clear of exploits.

comment Windows 7 no longer genuine after P2V migration
Weird. Maybe try doing a full sysprep and re-entering the key? That should make it happy with the virtual hardware.

Was the Windows license purchased through volume licensing or as OEM?

comment 2 different email hosts for the same domain
Avleen: I recently configured postfix and procmail to forward messages to different mail providers based on email address with great success. (It's also a neat way to get around the issue of slow MX record propagation in DNS when changing mail providers.)

comment Win Server Security: Why do members of a group not get access when the Group has permission?
I'm sorry, this is incorrect. Not all operating systems have group policy; maybe you're thinking of ACLs? Top level permissions will apply to the descendents when inheritance is enabled, but they never "override" lower levels.

Are you testing this over the network or from an interactive logon?

comment Problem getting into our website from within the network
But .local has problems too, especially if there are Macs in the network. My preference is for a subdomain of the real domain, like corp.contoso.com.

comment Restricting Access to Application(s) on Point of Sale system
What about having the manager RDP into one of the workstations from the POS machine? You get fast access to applications, no need to log off from POS machine, and closing the session is fast and secure.

comment Best practice ACLs to prepare for auditors?
Protip: membership in machine-local groups is determined when the SMB session is established, so it is best to make changes when nobody is connected to the fileserver.

comment Best practice ACLs to prepare for auditors?
+1 Nice idea! Just as fast as share permissions, but applied through the file system instead. I guess the permissions would be lost if the files were copied to another server, though.

Although it wasn't exactly the answer I was looking for, your response did lead me to my eventual conclusion so I am accepting your answer.

In Canada, almost everybody can accept credit card payments. So can I assume that nearly every business is subject to PCI DSS?

I like this! It means one extra step when creating new staff accounts, but that's the nature of default deny. :)
