Insecure Executable

Risk Level

Informational (4)

  • N/A


It was found that the tool '{InsecureExecutable}' is configured with Set-UID and owned by user 'root'. Certain Linux executables, when configured in this way, can be used to bypass local security restrictions and lead to privilege escalation.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    Consider removing the Set-UID privilege from the file, and limit the use of such binaries to users by granting them specific command permissions using the 'sudoers' functionality
