Popcorn Time For Windows installs as a service with an unquoted
service path running with SYSTEM privileges.
This could potentially allow an authorized but non-privileged local
user to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges on the system.

A successful attempt would require the local user to be able to insert their
code in « Program files (x86) » (popcorn.exe) or « C: » (program.exe)
folders undetected by the OS or other security applications
where it could potentially be executed during application startup or reboot.
If successful, the local user’s code would execute with the elevated privileges
of the application.
