Does USBPcapCMD.exe need admin rights/privileges to perform USB packet capture #56
Would like to know if USBPcapCMD.exe need admin rights/privileges to perform USB capture.
It is installed by Admin and executed by user in my case. Let me know if admin need to set any permissions on USBPcapCMD.exe file.
The actual capture needs Elevated priviledges. There's no need to set any special permissions on the USBPcapCMD - if you start capture from unelevated USBPcapCMD, it'll automatically display the UAC elevation dialog.
The only reason for the admin rights is to prevent malicious use of the USBPcapDriver (eg. to prevent unelevated viruses from capturing the USB traffic).
