Under very specific conditions, a malicious user can try repeatedly to guess an account password, even if the domain administrator has set the Account Lockout Policy to disable the account after a specified number of attempts to access it. A number of factors limit the scope of this vulnerability: This vulnerability affects only computers running Windows 2000 on a non-Windows 2000 domain.
