Editorial review


Ricardo Soria Senior editor

DumpSec is a light and easy-to-use software application that shows you multiple reports containing very detailed information about your system's security configuration, permissions, audit settings and other related aspects regarding your file system, printers, registry, and other critical areas of your Windows operating system.
This way, you can easily detect and document security holes that can compromise the safety of your private information.

The program is very simple and easy to use, though its interface is not very friendly. You can select what kind of information you want to display through the "Report" menu. Once you choose an option, you just have to wait for the program to scan your system and display the appropriate report. Among the type of information you can obtain, you will find the Path (for file system objects), the Account (username), the permissions configuration for both files and directories, the key and the inheritable configuration in case of the system registry, and the audit information, always depending on the type of report you choose. You can also configure what fields to show and hide in the results, which can also be filtered.

DumpSec is fully compatible with Microsoft Windows NT, XP 2000 and 2003.

Publisher's description

SomarSoft's DumpSec is a security auditing program for Microsoft Windows® NT/XP/200x. It dumps the permissions (DACLs) and audit settings (SACLs) for the file system, registry, printers and shares in a concise, readable format, so that holes in system security are readily apparent. DumpSec also dumps user, group and replication information.

SomarSoft has granted distribution rights for SomarSoft's DumpSec (formerly known as DumpAcl), DumpReg, and DumpEvt programs. As last released by SomarSoft, these utilities are now offered as FREE utilities for reporting of security, directory, registry, and event information under Windows NT/200x.
