A Simple Question for all Self-Proclaimed Active Directory Security Experts


As former Microsoft Program Manager for Active Directory Security, I find it amusing every time I come across some Active Directory vendor's or self-proclaimed AD security expert's website that claims that they know Active Directory Security well.

(You see, not one of these Active Directory Security vendors or self-proclaimed Active Directory security experts seem to have a CLUE as to the most important Active Directory Security Capability in the world, let alone possessing that paramount capability.)

So, I thought I'd  pose a very simple Active Directory Security question to all Active Directory Security vendors and experts -

Question: Do you know the answer to this ONE simple question?

Specifically, in that question, I have shared a simple non-default string, and I have indicated that is a cause for great concern.

What I would like to know is what it represents and why is it a great cause of concern for 85% of organizations worldwide?

On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being easy and 10 being difficult, I'd rate this question as a 3, so if you're truly an Active Directory expert, this should be easy for you, and shouldn't take you a minute. You can leave your answer in a comment below.

Here's your chance to impress me (and the whole world.) Oh, and Microsoft employees too may feel free to take a shot ;-)

Best wishes,
