Vulnerability title: Privilege Escalation In SAP ECC
CVE: CVE-2015-3621
Vendor: SAP
Product: ECC
Affected version: Unknown
Fixed version: Latest
Reported by: Tim Brown

Details:

It has been identified that binaries that are executed with elevated privileges (SetGID and SetUID programs) have been compiled in manner that means they searched for libraries in insecure locations.

Impact:

An attacker could place a malicious executable in a location that is referenced in their PATH which would then be executed when the affected program is run, leading to privilege escalation in instances where the program runs with privileges that the attacker does not have. For example, if the program is SetUID root, the attacker would obtain root privileges upon exploiting this vulnerability.
