#1778 closed Bug (No Bug)

ProcessClose() is looking at other logged-in users

Reported by: scriptstopper Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: 3.3.6.1 Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:

Description

ProcessClose() should only be able to 'see' processes running in the account which is running the script.

This is especially true when the script-running account, is a regular User and NOT an Administrator.

To replicate, run Windows XP, log in two users and run notepad.exe in each account. In one account, run the following script:
topic 120352 in the forums

$list = ProcessList("notepad.exe")
for $i = 1 to $list[0][0]
  msgbox(0, $list[$i][0], $list[$i][1])
next

There was a bug for exactly the opposite of this at one time (or it was reported on the forum, I can't recall which). The behavior is correct.

Replying to Valik:

There was a bug for exactly the opposite of this at one time (or it was reported on the forum, I can't recall which). The behavior is correct.

How can one logged in user know the processes of another logged on user, when both are not administrators? What is the purpose of knowing what another user in a terminal session is running? It cannot be manipulated/changed. IMHO it seems more like a microsoft bug to allow one user session to know what another is doing..
