Privilege Escalation (Unquoted Service Path)  
  
  
  
Vulnerability Details:  
=====================  
  
"jhi_service.exe" installs with an unquoted service path running with  
SYSTEM privileges. If a local malicious user places  
thier own executable named "Program.exe" in the path of the service and it  
is restarted or on system reboot, this  
can allow the user arbitrary code execution to the level of the account  
that starts the service (SYSTEM).
