In vpu, there is a possible escalation of privilege due to a missing permission check. This could lead to local escalation of privilege with System execution privileges needed. User interaction is not needed for exploitation. Patch ID: ALPS05954679; Issue ID: ALPS05954679.

Weakness

The software does not properly assign, modify, track, or check privileges for an actor, creating an unintended sphere of control for that actor.
