In Progress OpenEdge before 11.7.14 and 12.x before 12.2.9, certain SUID binaries within the OpenEdge application were susceptible to privilege escalation. If exploited, a local attacker could elevate their privileges and compromise the affected system.

Weakness

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