What most frightens me is that they configured it to auto-escalate Visual Studio. Whatever moron gave them that advice doesn’t understand Visual Studio and flunked their security training.
It gives me anxiety attacks that I can’t open a Visual Studio window without the Admin warning box. I’m increasingly less sure I can build software safely with BeyondTrust installed and configured this way.
It’s proof they fucked up the attack surface real fucking bad.
