SynopsisThe remote web server hosts a Java application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionX-Pack Security versions 5.0.0 to 5.4.0 contain a privilege escalation bug in the run_as functionality. This bug prevents transitioning into the specified user specified in a run_as request. If a role has been created using a template that contains the _user properties, the behavior of run_as will be incorrect. Additionally if the run_as user specified does not exist, the transition will not happen.
SolutionUser currently using run_as functionality should upgrade to X-Pack Security 5.4.1
