A Local Privilege Escalation Vulnerability in MagniComp's Sysinfo before 10-H64 for Linux and UNIX platforms could allow a local attacker to gain elevated privileges.

This access could be exploited by a local attacker to gain a root shell prompt using the right combination of environment variables and command line arguments.
