+ Summary

When an operating system starts, it also starts programs called services or daemons. Adversaries may install a new service which will be executed at startup (on a Windows system, by modifying the registry). The service name may be disguised by using a name from a related operating system or benign software. Services are usually run with elevated privileges.

+ Solutions and Mitigations

Limit privileges of user accounts so new service creation can only be performed by authorized administrators.
