I’ve been talking about (and exploiting in my internal security assessments) this very thing for a long time and it’s finally reaching the “mainstream media”. Never ever underestimate the intentions of rogue insiders to exploit a Windows flaw like this.
It’s not just this Windows exploit….It’s a whole slew of them. And Metasploit’s cheap and very easy to use.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
