Escalation of privileges in Outpost and Lavasoft Firewalls -Unusual ShellExecute behavior
From: mullware () gmail com

Outpost Firewall Pro ver. 3.51.759.6511 (462)
And Lavasoft Personal Firewall ver. 1.0.543.5722 (433)
Summary of problem: The firewall runs its windows under a SYSTEM context.
A user with lower privileges than SYSTEM could locate the (open folder) control on some
of these windows, terminate the explorer.exe process and then click on the (open folder) control
to open a SYSTEM owned explorer shell logging in right over the top of the previous user!
