Mr Evil Blackhat's binary is then a mechanism for circumventing the
Windows trust mechanism, and as such his account is subject to
termination and his binary can be added to dbx. We'd check the binary
hash against dbx and refuse to load it on systems that have received the
update, and Mr Evil Blackhat would have to find a new bunch of identity
documents to create a new account to repeat the process.
