Python script to find all Windows binaries with autoElevate=True (uses sigcheck obviously)
# Usage: findelevate.py C:\Windows\System32\
# Needs sigcheck.exe in path [https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897441.aspx]
import sys
import os
import glob
import subprocess
if len(sys.argv) < 2:
print "Usage: findelevate.py <PATH>"
print "Ex: Usage: findelevate.py C:\\Windows\\System32\\"
sys.exit()
d = sys.argv[1]
if not (d.endswith('\\')):
d = d+'\\'
exefiles = []
if os.path.isdir(d):
exefiles = glob.glob(d+'*.exe')
i = 0
for exe in exefiles:
p = subprocess.Popen(['sigcheck', '-q','-m', exe],stdout=subprocess.PIPE,stderr=subprocess.PIPE)
out, err = p.communicate()
if 'true</autoElevate>' in out: #will check for xmlns autoelevate as well. Thanks @mynameisv_
print exe.strip()
i = i + 1
print "Found " + str(i) + " executables with autoElevate set to true!"
