Is there any benefit to changing the default CIFS share permission from everyone/Full control to Autheniticated Users/Full Control?
I am locking the shares using NTFS permissions however, some people have requested, in addition to NTFS perms to allow only some users access, the share perms get updated to authenticated users/full control. Is this somehow providing another level of security that I am just not aware of?

CIFS share permissions Everyone vs. Authenticated Users
If I have CIFS share perms set to Everyone/full control and the shared folder ntfs perms with only ntdom\user1 listed, how does changing everyone/full control to authenticated users/full control provide any additional security?
Looking at the documentation: " A share-level ACL only restricts access to files in the share; it never grants more access than the file-level ACLs."
