Win7 x64 Enterprise, Process Explorer v16.20.

On a process' Security tab, only a few privileges are listed instead of three dozen as it should:

I doesn't matter if I run Process Explorer elevated or not.

  • Why do you expect it to list all privileges? I’d expect it only to list those that are explicitly enabled or disabled. – Daniel B Jun 7 '18 at 7:57
  • @DanielB well, a privilege can only be enabled or disabled, there's no other state, no? – ivan_pozdeev Jun 7 '18 at 7:59
  • 1
    But there is: Absent from the security token. Which would result in some default behavior. – Daniel B Jun 7 '18 at 8:10

According to What is the State column returned by whoami /priv?, a privilege is only present in the list if it can be acquired at all.

Kind of a Polichinelle secret: not only can't I acquire a privilege, I can't even find out that it exists :)
