Submission + - Two-Step Windows Vista UAC Hack Published

FutureDomain writes: "PC World has an article about how security researchers have developed a way to bypass Vista's UAC. The attack involves installing malicious code with a lower-level program and adding an "executable stub" that is started instead of another higher-level program. When the higher program is run, the malicious code gets to run with the higher program's integrity level. This works because all installers are run with administrator privileges."
