JSI Tip 2558. Windows 2000 can un'Lock Computer' using cached credentials?

If you are logged on more than once and change you password in one session, the other sessions can be unlocked using either the new or old password.

The cached credentials are not removed until you logoff from a session.

You can not establish any new network connections using the cached credentials.

If you changed your password because it was compromised, manually disconnect all network sessions.

NOTE: Use CConnect.exe to prevent concurrent connections.
