How to escalate privileges to SYSTEM in Windows 10

Vulnerability Research

Attackers hope getting administrator privileges always. If they had get it, they can do anything. Therefore, they try to get administrator privileges in various ways, such as account stealing, privilege escalation, UAC bypass. I gave a presentation in BSidesLV 2017 with the content "How to escalate privileges to administrator in latest Windows". At that time, I used the problem of CompMgmtLauncher as a means of getting administrator privileges, but Microsoft fixed this problem with Windows 10 Creators Update (Build 15063). But I have found a new and powerful way that escalate privileges to the SYSTEM without using vulnerabilities in latest Windows. I hope you to see the demo, understand the mechanism, and prepare against the attacks.
