  Microsoft Internet Information Server Security Overview   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Microsoft® Internet Information Server (IIS) is tightly integrated with the Microsoft Windows NT® Server operating system to provide the most powerful Web server for organizations to take advantage of the opportunities of the Internet and intranets, while providing the highest levels of security for applications and information.
IIS was designed to make it easy to use a wide range of access control mechanisms to critical business data, depending on the needs of the organization.
Because Microsoft must respond to changing market conditions, it should not be interpreted to be a commitment on the part of Microsoft, and Microsoft cannot guarantee the accuracy of any information presented after the date of publication.

 IIS 6.0 Security
As a result, IIS has been completely redesigned to be secure by default and secure by design.
In the past, vendors including Microsoft packaged the default installations of their web servers with an array of sample scripts, file handlers and minimal file-system permissions to provide administrators the necessary flexibility and ease of use.
IIS 6.0 is a step in the right direction, by Microsoft, to help organizations improve their security postures.

With IIS 6, they also support the ability of administrators to map them to be handled in different application pools (which are our worker processes), for greater reliability and process isolation.
The key thing to remember is that it is the IIS bindings, and not the file-system, that determines application scopes and boundaries—an administrator can configure things however he or she wants.
Microsoft ASP.NET uses the IIS application metadata flag (stored in the IIS metabase configuration system) to identify application boundaries, and applies special semantics to content hosted within them.

 Ditch Microsoft IIS now, says Gartner | The Register
The alternatives "have much better security records than IIS and are not under active attack by the vast number of virus and worm writers."
The key point of the advisory is that Gartner has lost faith in Microsoft's ability to patch and fix the IIS.
It recommends holding off from.NET products too, or at least those that are based on Microsoft's IIS until the latter is "completely rewritten".

 Commentary: Another worm, more patches | CNET News.com
As a "rollup worm," Nimda bundles several known exploits against Microsoft's IIS, Internet Explorer browser and operating systems such as Windows 2000 and Windows XP, which have IIS and IE embedded in their code.
As the earlier Code Red worm showed, many servers and PCs running IIS Web server processes may not be obvious because they may be run as personal Web servers on the intranet but are still be exposed to the Internet.
Gartner remains concerned that viruses and worms will continue to attack IIS until Microsoft has released a completely rewritten release of ISS that is thoroughly and publicly tested.

 M010923 - Gartner: Dump Microsoft IIS

Disturbing to many is that in 6.0, Microsoft is moving some Web server functionality into the Windows kernel to improve performance.
It's so easy to deface an IIS hosted Web site even the script kiddies are embarrassed (the crew that defaced the Girl Scouts Web site apologized to their peers for hitting such an easy target).

Because IIS doesn't limit the amount of memory that can be used in this case, this scenario could case IIS to fail as a result of running out of local memory.
