Would it be possible for the consultant who set up our Sharepoint server this year to have left some sort of a back door? We changed the admin password and removed some other strange accounts. Can he still get in?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If he did something malicious to it or knows other account details then yes.

If you have reason to beleive that the consultant wants to do something malicious to your environment sharepoint would be the last thing I would worry about….. how vulnerable are your domain controllers? exchange servers?

The fact is that even with the best security in place and no previous knowledge of an environment it is still possible to get access to it. Depends how badly someone with the required skills wants in.

    Yes id agree with Erroneous Gia..Quote "even with the best security in place and no previous knoledge of an environment it is still possible to get access to it"...the best practice is to learn as much as you can towards your sharepoint server, check for Group policy weird or altered settings and compare, analyze and conclude..check log...get to know your sytem in out, reseach..
