    Will be fixed in the next beta build and should be released before too long.
    To be honest, I don't understand what they are saying. o_O

    what they are saying is if you are running under a restricted user profile (no admin rights), you can, by using the outpost systray icon, access a shell
    with SYSTEM rights.
    Then you can do all that you wants as if you were the administrator, scary.

    That requires physical access, right?

    Normally, yes :)

    but with a little imagination, i can perfectly think to a trojan using the outpost pro systray to start a hidden shell with system rights, and then using this shell...

    anyway, this is very unlikely to occurs, but it's possible ;)
