Symptoms

All websites on the server require user authorization.

Cause

The server is infected by a virus. The virus has most likely used the MailEnable vulnerability. Virus infection causes a change of the Local Security Policy, all users, except for Administrators, are denied access to the computer from network. In Start, Administrative Tools, Local Security Policy, Local Policies, User Rights Assignment the field "Access this computer from network" is empty. Any new user added to the field gets removed when the MMC is opened again.
