WinU

[ #17420 ]
While I was at the customer yesterday, I noticed one of the public terminals used a tool called WinU to block access to certain parts of the computer. In less than a minute I was able to open a DOS box. You can bow for me now!

The main reason why this is possible is that they allowed access to Internet Explorer... and, as we all know, Internet Explorer is fully integrated in the kernel so allowing access to that part, also allows access to the main shell... which in turn allowed access to C:\Windows\Command.com. This is supposed to be one of the competiting products but from the looks of it, it sucks bigtime :)
