exploit/windows/local/bypassuac_windows_store_reg) (FAILED)


This module exploits a flaw in the WSReset.exe file associated with the Windows Store. This binary has autoelevate privs, and it will run a binary file contained in a low-privilege registry location. By placing a link to the binary in the registry location, WSReset.exe will launch the binary as a privileged user.

As seen from the screenshot above, the exploit was aborted due to failure. Reason is because the target machine is not vulnerable to the exploit, likely meaning that this exploit has already been patched by Windows.
