eventvwr.exe launching child process other than mmc.exe
Creation or modification of the registry value HKCU\Software\Classes\mscfile\shell\open\command
During startup, eventvwr.exe checks the registry value HKCU\Software\Classes\mscfile\shell\open\command for the location of mmc.exe, which is used to open the eventvwr.msc saved console file. If the location of another binary or script is added to this registry value, it will be executed as a high-integrity process without a UAC prompt being displayed to the user.
Usecase:Execute a binary or script as a high-integrity process without a UAC prompt.
OS:Windows vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10
