All Antivirus, Trojan, Spy ware scanner, Nested file
manual scan bypass bugs. [Part IV]

Risk Level: Medium
Affected Product: (Should be) all Antivirus, Trojan,
Spy ware scanners for windows.


A malicious code can reside in a computer (with users
privilage) bypassing "manual scans" of any
Antivirus, Trojan & Spy ware scanners by simply
issuing this command to itself.

cacls hUNT.exe /T /C /P dumb_user:R

...this is only due to the design fault in Microsoft
Windows, the way it handles NTFS permission.By this
way... any softwareÂ’s with even Admin./SYSTEM
privilege can't access this file (hUNT.exe) normally
because the only person who has normal access to this
file is "dumb_user"

No wonder, there are several false assumptions in
windows security configuration as well, when a JOE
administrator could permenantly lock himself up in his
own machine.
