Are you guys still talking about UAC? Man... If that's Windows 7's biggest problem, well, do go buy lots of MSFT shares, eh?

By the way, I just wrote an app that will execute with full rights regardless of the user rights context you're running under. So,it by-passes UAC altogether.... All you have to do is get it on your system in the first place and I'll take it from there. The solution is really quite simple: Don't run my exe on your computer.

 

Hey, Jamie. Here's some storyline fodder for your next cartoon:

 

Luke Smith: Hey!!! UAC is not a security feature. It's a security hole!!!! OMG!! OMG!!!!!!

Darth: Could you be more.... specific?

Luke Smith: OMG!!! OMG!!!! It's over. It's ALL over! Windows 7 is not secure!!! You can run code on Windows 7!!!! OMG!!! OMG!!!

Darth: Yes. Of course, you can run code on Windows, young Jedi. Elaborate. What are you talking about? Quickly. I have much to do.

Luke Smith: OMG!!! OMG!!! UAC can be used by a rogue binary to self-elevate by injecting itself into the security context of a signed, trusted system binary that by-passes UAC checks. OMG!!! OMG!!!

Darth: Have I shown you my latest Death Ray?

(cue Rush's 2112...)
