Intel Dynamic Tuning Technology Software Privilege Escalation (INTEL-SA-00984)

high Nessus Plugin ID 197406


Intel Dynamic Tuning Technology (DTT) software on the remote host is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability.


Improper access control in the Intel DTT Software before version 8.7.10802.26924 may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable escalation of privilege via local access.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Update the Intel DTT Software to the latest version provided by the system manufacturer that addresses these issues.
