XEROX CP-V contains a flaw that leads to unauthorized privileges being gained. The issue is triggered when executing user programs as these can via unspecified actions partially execute in "master mode" (supervisor state) where memory protection does not apply. With a specially crafted program, a local attacker can e.g. manipulate the "privilege level" byte to bypass all levels of security, gaining full privileges.
