Disable: 'User Account Control: Switch to the secure desktop when prompting for elevation' for PromptOnSecureDesktop This policy setting controls whether the elevation request prompt is displayed on the interactive user's desktop or the secure desktop. The options are: - Enabled: (Default) All elevation requests go to the secure desktop regardless of prompt behavior policy settings for administrators and standard users. - Disabled: All elevation requests go to the interactive user's desktop. Prompt behavior policy settings for administrators and standard users are used. Counter Measure: Enable the User Account Control: Switch to the secure desktop when prompting for elevation setting. The secure desktop helps protect against input and out spoofing by presenting the credentials dialog box in a protected section of memory which only is accessible by trusted system processes. Potential Impact: None. This is the default configuration.


Parameter:


Technical Mechanism: (1) GPO: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\User Account Control: Switch to the secure desktop when prompting for elevation (2) REG: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\PromptOnSecureDesktop
