These two application if allowed to execute can shut down system inspite of denying shutdown privilages/ all other actions by these appliocations.
These has been discussed here in the past and Defence+ was supposed to intercept them but on my system both latest and previous versions failed.
Also i don,t like the way shut down protection is implemented in Defence+. Infact all these Privilage options are annoying and very boring. I get popups for so many applications about trying to get this and that privilage and I am really going to hate these type of pop ups. Seems so irritating. Why Defence+ not giving pop up laert like all other HIPS only when an application tries to do actual shut down of the system. I wish that developers change this behavior.
Defense+ does not intercept system shutdown requests. We may introduce this feature in the future though. Privilege elevation may sometimes provide protection but it is still possible to shutdown the system witout those necessary privileges.
Few privilege elevation prompts can be removed.
Other ones can be added (look for pseudo com objects).
Privilege elevation prompts are just another way to harden a system without creating different usergroups.
IMHO they are useful.
I guess it would be better to keep them and add additional features.
