Comments (Legacy)
 Northcutt> The definition is?
 Baker> Maybe a rewording of this one too.  I think most people would agree on
   some "minimum" policies like 3-5 bad attempts lockout for an hour or
   until the administrator unlocks the account.
   Suggested rewrite -
   A Windows NT account policy does not enforce reasonable minimum
   security-critical settings for lockouts, e.g. lockout duration,
   lockout after bad logon attempts, etc.
