Description

An escalation of privileges can occur when the 'load factory-default' command fails while in exclusive edit mode. When the load command fails, the user is no longer subject to any command and/or configuration restrictions. The escalation is limited to authenticated users with the ability to edit the configuration in the first place. The privilege bypass is specific to configured classes of CLI users with restrictions such as 'allow-commands', 'deny-commands', and 'deny-configuration'.
