Improper Privilege Management
VMware Workspace ONE Access, Identity Manager and vRealize Automation contain a privilege escalation vulnerability. A malicious actor with local access can escalate privileges to 'root'.
CWE-269 - Improper Privilege Management
An effective privilege management infrastructure provides valid users with required access and privileges across heterogeneous technology environments. An application with a faulty privilege management infrastructure allows higher than authorized privileges or enables privilege escalation. This can lead to security incidents such as system infiltration, data breach, and complete system takeover.
