Missing authorization check in RSUDO for “Execute as”, SAP security note 1429198

Description

Certain functions of transaction RSUDO can be called without the logged-on user having the prerequisite authorization for them.  This can lead to an escalation of privileges.

When you execute a query with another user (“Execution as User”) in transaction RSUDO, the system checks only during the initial start whether the user has sufficient authorization to execute the transaction with the entered user.
