How to prevent creation / modification of shortcuts for users (Active Directory domain) ?


  • Hello everyone !

    So here is my first question to the community: How do we prevent the creation and / or modification of shortcuts by users of an Active Directory domain?

    Why ?

    Well in order to prevent, among others, ransomware attacks.
    You know, these small files that a user (with no antivirus up to date) downloads via his mailbox and hide your folders. Then, change the path of the existing shortcuts (or by creating them) in order to direct anyone to the diabolical executable.

    Your help would be truly valuable !

    Thank you.
