I've struggled to find much information on this topic. What I'm interested in is the following:
A user is logged into a Windows (7, 8.1, etc) workstation as a standard non-administrative account. They then use the Shift-Right Click method to start another process as an elevated account (e.g. domain admin, local admin, etc.)
If that workstation were to be infected with Malware, what level of permissions would that malware have the realistic potential to exploit? Would it be limited to the non-administrative account that is logged in, or would it have the possibility to also take advantage of any elevated processes that may be available? Also how different would this be from standard UAC operations?
The purpose of the question is to determine how effective running as a non-administrator while still elevating several processes be against malware?
