Disclosure Date


Trust Agent for Mac OS X contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to gain access to unauthorized privileges. The issue is triggered when the agent delivers a message to a login screen, or over the password prompt to exit the screensaver, through which an unauthenticated user can access System Preferences as the root user. This flaw may lead to a loss of integrity.
