    Where did Strip My Rights come from?


    I like the idea of lowering my browser's write capability with a restricted token, but that's what I have Simple Software Restriction Policy and EMET for. I never intentionally downloaded or installed StripMyRights.exe, which is in C:\Windows, and Malwarebytes Premium is flagging the registry keys and values written by it as a "Security Hijack", specifically (HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS NT\CURRENTVERSION\IMAGE FILE EXECUTION OPTIONS\FIREFOX.EXE|Debugger) for example ( there are 4 keys and 4 values in total) Is this put here by EMET or Simple Software Restriction Policy? How can I check that my browser is actually operating under a restricted token rather than a (maliciously) elevated one? Thanks!

    Thanks! Somehow I missed that one when I was Googling. Also, I ran into a post at the Malwarebytes Forum where someone had run into a similar problem, and it turned to be EMET that was throwing a flag with Malwarebytes. I consider this solved, but would still appreciate if someone knows how to check on the restricted browser token (that it's restricted and not elevated). Thanks Griffscavern!
