FAQ

Privilege Escalation

What are the main privilege escalation types?

Horizontal privilege escalation

Attacks in which a threat actor tries to expand its sphere of control over a whole system by gaining access to additional users with equivalent administrative credentials. Horizontal privilege escalation occurs when an attacker exploits lower-level or unprivileged user accounts without security policies.

Vertical privilege escalation

An attack in which the attacker elevates access rights above stated account permissions is known as Privilege Elevation. Such attacks usually aim to acquire access to accounts with limitless administrator capabilities, such as System Administrator.

What are the best practices to avoid privilege escalation?

Use these five simple steps:

  1. Do regular scannings
  2. Follow the less privilege principle
  3. Rotate default credentials
  4. Constantly monitor user behavior
  5. Limit file access and block unused ports
