I could be wrong, but I'm yet to hear a valid argument for the exploitability that these things deliver...outweighing their very dubious / debatable functionality. They seem to me to be marginally handy, but I don't think I have any need for them. I do have a need for security, however.
How can I delete their entire functionality permanently from my hard drive, please? Microsoft only has pages on how to create them; which seems almost peculiar to the point of being dubious (at least, to me...)
And just a dumb command line question, am I correct in assuming
fsutil hardlink list c: will enumerate every single hardlink on that drive?
C:\Windows\system32>fsutil hardlink list c: \Windows\System32
Also, how do I delete symbolic links please ;)
But I'd just rather have all symbolic linking and recursion-creating stuff removed, if that's possible?
C:\Windows\system32>fsutil behavior query symlinkevaluation Local to local symbolic links are enabled. Local to remote symbolic links are enabled. Remote to local symbolic links are disabled. Remote to remote symbolic links are disabled.
