Task Scheduler is a set of Microsoft Windows components that allows for the execution of scheduled tasks. The front-end components of Task Scheduler,such as schtasks.exe,are interfaces that allow for users to view,create,and modify scheduled tasks. The back-end part of Task Scheduler is a Windows service that runs with SYSTEM privileges. One of the libraries used by the Task Scheduler service,schedsvc.dll,has a function called tsched::SetJobFileSecurityByName(),which sets permissions of job files. The permissions of the job file in the%Windir%system32 asks directory are modified to give the calling user full permissions ..
