If you are a windows user then you must have known that administrator privilege is stronger in windows.
Administrator user can do almost anything in windows computer.
In this article we will discuss how hackers hack user privilege.

Windows Privilege Escalation hack

Once attackers have obtained a user account on target windows computer, they will set their eyes immediately on obtaining Administrator or System equivalent privileges.
One of the all time greatest hack of windows was so called getadmin family of exploits.
Getadmin was the first serious privilege escalation attack against windows NT4, the basic technique by which it works, DLL injection, lives on and is still used effectively today.
The power of getadmin was muted somewhat by the fact that it must be run by an interactive user on the target system, as must most privilege escalation attacks.
Finally we should note that obtaining administrator status is not technically the highest privilege one can obtain on windows machine.
The SYSTEM account actually accrues more privilege than Administrator . However there are few common trick to allow administrator to attain SYSTEM privileges quite easily.
One is to open command prompt in windows and type below code to get system access:---

at time /INTERACTIVE cmd.exe

example- at 14:52 /INTERACTIVE cmd.exe
Or you can use psexec tool to hack windows to gain system privilege.
