applocker dilema


  • I came across a question: If in applocker Domains admins are allowed to run iexplorer.exe , and then there is deny rule for domain users. Will domain admins be able to run iexplorer.exe ? Are domain admins part of domain users group ?

  • Domain Users

    This group contains all domain users. By default, any user account created in the domain becomes a member of this group automatically. This group can be used to represent all users in the domain. For example, if you want all domain users to have access to a printer, you can assign permissions for the printer to this group (or add the Domain Users group to a local group, on the print server, that has permissions for the printer).

    No default user rights.

    Since in Applocker "deny" is the default behavior, why would one create
    an explicit "deny" rule?

    NO THEY ARE NOT EVIL, if you know what you are doing: Good or bad GPOs?

  • Hi Glenn,

    How is it going? Agree with Martin. The following paragraph describes the rule behavior of Applocker:
