IBM Rational ClearCase client script privilege escalation
|clearcase-cve20135373-priv-esc (86791)||Medium Risk|
A file permissions error with a script installed by default with IBM Rational ClearCase could be exploited by a local user to insert additional commands into the script. These commands would be executed by other users (privileged or unprivileged) that execute the script, leading to privilege escalation.
Refer to IBM Security Bulletin 1648811 for patch, upgrade or suggested workaround information. See References.
