Elevated Command

1: CIS version:
2: OS version:
Windows 7 64-bit (version 6.1 / build 7601 / Service Pack 1)
3: What you did:
Logged in as a normal user (limited).
Wait for the ISE update prompt.
When ISE prompts for an update, click on the the “Release notes” link.
4: What you actually saw:
IE (version 11.0.9600.18697) opened the link. Pretended to print the page using the “Microsoft XPS Document Writer”
This allowed me to open (explore) the files at “C:\Windows\System32”. Type “*.exe” at the filename field to list all executables.
Find the “cmd.exe,” right click and select “Run as Administrator”. From here, the Command Prompt will be run under the SYSTEM account. Any executable may be run by the user to take control of the system.
5: What you expected to happen or see:
IE (or any browser) should run using the currently logged in user account.
6: If possible attach a screenshot illustrating the GUI problem
Cannot send the screenshot now, I am already late. Will do later.

Attached some details and screenshot. I hope this helps.

I hope this issue be resolved the soonest before someone take advantage of this flaw, especially in corporate networks.
