This privilege determines which user accounts can increase or decrease the size of a process's working set. Default: Users The working set of a process is the set of memory pages currently visible to the process in physical RAM memory. These pages are resident and available for an application to use without triggering a page fault. The minimum and maximum working set sizes affect the virtual memory paging behavior of a process. Warning: Increasing the working set size for a process decreases the amount of physical memory available to the rest of the system. Counter Measure: Certain environments can help mitigate this risk by limiting which users can increase the process working set. Potential Impact: Users will be unable to increase the working set for their processes, which could degrade performance. Fix: (1) GPO: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment\Increase a process working set (2) REG: ### (3) WMI: root\rsop\computer#RSOP_UserPrivilegeRight#AccountList#UserRight='SeIncreaseWorkingSetPrivilege' and precedence=1
