1. Description:

Battle.Net installs by default to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Battle.Net" with weak folder permissions granting any built-in user account with full permission to the contents of

the directory and it's subfolders. This allows an attacker opportunity for their own code execution under any other user running the application. This is not limited to just

the Battle.Net directory, but also to any of Blizzards game installation folders as installed by Battle.Net.
