Forum Thread: Windows Defender Instantly Picks Up Priv Escalation

I have a question.

I've got a windows/x64/meterpreter/reverse_tcp session on a Windows 10 system (using Kali). But when I try to elevate my privileges to system level, Windows Defender instantly blocks everything, even the infamous ASK exploit (and yes, I tried PSH method). Some exploits even lead to my session being terminated (died)... Why doesn't it work and is there still a way to elevate to system privs with Windows Defender installed on the target?

Thanks in advance.

Windows Defender is a powerful tool that blocks any suspicious activities that can harm your Windows computer. However, if you think the activities will not harm your PC, then, disable Windows Defender from your PC.
