This privilege escalation through how MSI packages handle symlinks is easily exploitable. Due to the POC being public: <https://github.com/padovah4ck/CVE-2020-0683&gt; it is easy to craft your own exploits for this.

Any org without a good patching cadence.would be vulnerable to this as a valid privilege escalation vector.
