A privilege escalation vulnerability in FortiClient for Linux 6.2.1 and below may allow a user with low privilege to overwrite system files as root with arbitrary content through system backup file via specially crafted "BackupConfig" type IPC client requests to the fctsched process. Further more, FortiClient for Linux 6.2.2 and below allow low privilege user write the system backup file under root privilege through GUI thus can cause root system file overwrite.
A privilege escalation vulnerability in FortiClient for Linux 6.2.1 and below may allow an user with low privilege to run system commands under root privilege via injecting specially crafted "ExportLogs" type IPC client requests to the fctsched process.
Debian-edu-config all versions < 2.11.10, a set of configuration files used for Debian Edu, and debian-lan-config < 0.26, configured too permissive ACLs for the Kerberos admin server, which allowed password changes for other Kerberos user principals.
In the Linux kernel before 5.4.2, the io_uring feature leads to requests that inadvertently have UID 0 and full capabilities, aka CID-181e448d8709. This is related to fs/io-wq.c, fs/io_uring.c, and net/socket.c. For example, an attacker can bypass intended restrictions on adding an IPv4 address to the loopback interface. This occurs because IORING_OP_SENDMSG operations, although requested in the context of an unprivileged user, are sometimes performed by a kernel worker thread without considering that context.
Insufficient access control in a subsystem for Intel (R) processor graphics in 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) Processor Families; Intel(R) Pentium(R) Processor J, N, Silver and Gold Series; Intel(R) Celeron(R) Processor J, N, G3900 and G4900 Series; Intel(R) Atom(R) Processor A and E3900 Series; Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor E3-1500 v5 and v6, E-2100 and E-2200 Processor Families; Intel(R) Graphics Driver for Windows before 188.8.131.5213 (DCH) or 184.108.40.20612 and before 21.20.x.5077 (aka15.45.5077), i915 Linux Driver for Intel(R) Processor Graphics before versions 5.4-rc7, 5.3.11, 4.19.84, 4.14.154, 4.9.201, 4.4.201 may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable escalation of privilege via local access.
A Local Privilege Escalation vulnerability exists in GlobalProtect Agent for Linux and Mac OS X version 5.0.4 and earlier and version 4.1.12 and earlier, that can allow non-root users to overwrite root files on the file system.
