Allowing Modify/Write Permission to "Everyone". Is it secure?

Jun 28, 2012 at 2:13 PM

Hi,

I've hosted BlogEngine.Net on my Windows 7 by following the documentation (installation guide). I allowed permissions to "Network Service" account but still there was accessibility exception. I've then added "Everyone" in BlogEngine.Web and allow it Write and Modify Permissions and got it working.

I want to know that is allowing Write and Modify to "Everyone" secure?

 

Thanks.

You can find who exactly needs write permissions pretty easily, check out this post. Given everyone full access is a big security concern.

You could try removing the "Everyone" group and add the IIS_IUSR account to the root folder of the install.
