Zero Day Windows Exploit

Recommended Posts

I do not normally bother mentioning various Windows malware but this one leverages a win32k.sys (multi-user Win32 driver file) bug to escalate 'user' privelege to 'system' by-passing User Account Control.

Note: it needs to be 'introduced' so updating competent AV, email, and web browser filters should detect the required payload.

 

Note: copy and paste URL as Cre8's URL obfuscation procedure breaks URL.

Hey, let's be careful out there.

Actually @IamLost...I much much much preferred this line from HSB...

 

Jablonski: "Let's do it to them before they do it to us."

 

Prosky WAS HSB to me, at least....and Roll Call WAS the way to start your day eh!

Jim...please remember where you are at all times...

This is Cre8asiteforums, the kinder gentler naturally holistic webdev forum.

There shall be no transmogrification of the golden rule at Kim's kitchen table.

It upsets the unicorns and blurs the rainbows...

 

 

Re- Prosky

Sorry, must disagree. The show simply wasted away after season 4. Not Robert Prosky's fault, he did a good job stepping into Michael Conrad's position, but the show went from gritty to increasingly soapy from then.

However, I do like that quote :nanadevil: when Kim isn't looking ;-)

 

 

I also like this one as defining competitive webdev:

I went by the book. I pushed a little hard at the bindings.
