Project Description
A nifty little utility for SharePoint that allows the listing of user and group permission rights across one or all of your Sharepoint sites in a farm. Also allows specific report restrictions, for example, against a specific user and/or a specific permission right. This has been updated to work with SharePoint 2010.
