Possible Dr Watson Escalation Exploit


Recommended Posts

I read that normal users have access to the registry key that tells Dr Watson (Windows debugger/error catching thing if I did my homework) and so if we were to replace the exe location to point to a small app to escalate privs and cause a crash would that not run our app?

Just a thought, don't know how viable it is but thought it was worth a shot... The only parts I was unsure of is if this exploit will still work and if we can bump the privs using it... oh, and how do you cause a crash worthy of debugging, a simple divide by zero won't cut it I don't think...
