Sorry! This is a very basic question on S2003. Apologies in advance.

I was wondering why more users than I intended had access to a share I
created. I set the share permissions to everyone full access, but I
thought the ntfs permissions were quite restrictive.

Turns out I was wrong: I had seen that local users group had read
access, but hadn't really thought much about it as I thought there
wouldn't be many local users, cos it was a web server only requiring a
few administrators like me to log on. Turns out every authenticated
user on the domain is in the local user group on the web server.

Now my infrastructure guys tell me this is completely normal and
nothing to worry about, and also the default setup. Can someone
confirm this and explain what local user group is for? I obviously
have got wrong, but I thought it was for people who will be logging
onto the server in question... not joe bloggs in the account
department who probably doesn't need to have any permissions on the
server - at most might need access to one share.
