It is about getting local admin rights in this case as the so called attack
scenario requires it.

List -- this is so easy to disprove yet we have all kinds of so called
security professonals and in this case a (wow, I am almost pissing myself)
BSD Kernel hacker, stating that they feel its a possible attack.

Go grab VMWare and various windows versions from your favorite warez site
and spend the time to actually try things and understand how the technology
works before you comment.

The bottom line is that what was posted on that site about "hacking high
school computers" is false.

AFAICT this is not about gaining admin rights (which one would if the
machine is a non-NT based Windows) but rather about gaining the right to
surf whatever website one wants. This can indeed be achieved by not
loading the group policies. (If I'm not mistaken here. I'm a BSD kernel
hacker, not a Windows supporter...)
