Running SQL Service under Network Service account

Answers

  • The Service account is a sysadmin on SQL Server so if I had another application running as the service account that application could authenticate to SQL Server as sysadmin.

     

    When you run as local system then you can potentially harm the windows OS.

     

    When you run as network Service then other services can potentially harm you.
