A computer security utility going by the name GetAdmin was released in early July, 1997. The utility exploited a flaw in the Microsoft Windows NT 4 operating system in order to escalate privileges of an arbitrary specified account. GetAdmin will no longer work on newer versions of Windows operation systems and patches have been made available for NT4. It can also be resolved by installing a hotfix known as the "getadmin fix".
