MPSA- Spot common insecurities Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows NT

Microsoft Personal Security Analyzer can scan desktop computers running on the operating systems Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional and Microsoft Windows NT 4 Workstation to identify common misconfigurations and suggest a solution to these problems.

MPSA can identify problems such as weak passwords, patches that are not installed, macro settings that lead to insecurities in the Microsoft Office suite. It also can identify common security settings in  Internet Explorer and Outlook Express.

MPSA was a standalone ActiveX control and limited to only scanning the machine with it installed.
