EMC Mainframe Enablers ResourcePak Base Privilege Management

EMC Mainframe Enablers ResourcePak Base Privilege Management
Posted May 8, 2017
Site emc.com

EMC Mainframe Enablers ResourcePak Base versions 7.6.0, 8.0.0 and 8.1.0 allows a Key 8 program to run in supervisor state instead of problem state. This could allow the program code which runs as an authorized user to give control to another Key 8 program in supervisor state. Supervisor state can allow privileged instructions to execute and/or cause inadvertent or intentional storage overlays which could lead to data corruption.
