Privilege escalation is also one of the most common techniques attackers use to discover and exfiltrate sensitive valuable data. From a hacker’s perspective, privilege escalation is the art of increasing privileges from the initial access, which is typically that of a standard user or application account, all the way up to administrator, root, or even full system access. With NT AuthoritySystem access or on Linux the root account, attackers have full access to one system. With Domain Administrator access, they own the entire network.
