Back in 99, I was was hired by a financial company to clean up their NT environment to help them get them ready for Windows 2000 and AD. First project was a server audit - found 100+ gb of MP3 files on one of the servers. Deleted it. Couple of days later it was back again. Deleted it again and locked down the server. Couple of days later it was back yet again. Also found l0phtcrack on the system. Traced it back to the help desk. Apparently they were offended that they lost their domain admin rights after the audit and decided to take matters into their own hands by using l0phtcrack and getadmin to get their domain admin rights back. Problem is, they didn't remove l0phtcrack well enough. At the time, the help desk was outsourced to a local body shop. The whole crew was fired and the body shop had to kiss a lot of a$$ to keep the account.
