Information in this document applies to any platform.


Users are able to bypass the OPAM usage policy whitelist and blacklist mechanisms which are use to allow or disallow specific commands during session checkouts.

For example:
1. Sudo su – is not whitelisted in OPAM . Hence OPAMSH is blocking the command.
2. The user can run a .sh script file having the Sudo su, the sudu command is executed.
3. The user gets root access via script execution which should not be allowed.
