OPENROWSET Dangers

Hi experts.

Wouold anyone please tell what the danger of allowing Ad Hoc Dsitributed Queries is for a back-end, data warehouse server taht is not accessed from web applications?

A typical use for the feature is to get sp_help_job info and to start remote jobs using server names instad of setting multiple linked servers.

Thank you in advance,
Rafael

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
