Subject [PATCH] WIN32 CreateProcessAsUser
Date Thu, 26 Aug 2004 12:56:07 GMT
Hi all,

Here is the patch that uses new function
apr_procattr_user_set. It is conditionally
compiled and if called before creating
process, ensures that the process is created
under different credentials.

The usage of such function is for httpd, to
allow running the child process under different
security, as well as cgi processes.

Those kind of thing is missing in httpd on WIN32,
and increases the security to a higher level.
Running child under different account IIS offers for
long time by default, so this would be one 'attribute'
less.

Regards,
MT.
