Who in their right mind runs Admin and turns off UAC?
You deserve malware if your doing that.
The described bypass (at least from my reading of the Slashdot summary) allows to bypass the UAC prompt even if UAC is turned on.
Regarding your comments about Trump: the fact that the only accusation they managed to dig up against him is that some of his businesses failed and that he's been sued is a pretty good indication that he's clean. His conglomerate participates in dozens if not hundreds of ventures. Some fail, some succeed. That's how business works. And virtually every successful business in the US has been sued... even the smallest business you can imagine would be foolish not to have some legal representation on retainer. That's just the society we live in. The barrier to suing someone with deep pockets is very low because the cost of litigation is universally larger than the cost of settling. Trump had failed businesses and there were times when he was in a technical bankruptcy (the value of his assets was lower than the value of his debt), but that did not mean that he was in an actual bankruptcy (failing to make payments to creditors). Orange County was in the same "bankruptcy " at some point during the 90's. And yet they never failed to provide any of the services. US government is in a constant state of such "bankruptcy" because it never collects as much in taxes as it spends (not even in today's world where it has record-high tax receipts).
Oh, and don't take this to be a cue to talk about "Clinton balancing the budget." Because I actually remember that year and I remember that it was
the same revenue (which was not even received yet) which allowed them to make that claim.
As for Trump's integrity, he actually bothers to get a divorce when he leaves his wife (unlike the Clintons staying in a marriage out of political convenience). Divorce is the honest way to leave your wife in case any one forgot.
