PAN-SA-2016-0016 Web Interface Privilege Escalation
Palo Alto Networks Panorama administrators have the ability to assign predefined permissions to users created on PAN-OS. A read-only user with CLI access could elevate web interface privileges. (Ref. 88191)
A user could elevate privileges by impersonating another user with higher permissions.
This issue affects PAN-OS 5.0.18 and earlier; PAN-OS 5.1.11 and earlier; PAN-OS 6.0.13 and earlier; PAN-OS 6.1.10 and earlier; PAN-OS 7.0.4 and earlier

Workarounds and Mitigations
Customers running versions of Panorama affected by this issue could create a custom admin role that does not allow CLI access and to avoid any privilege escalation. Firewalls running PAN-OS are not affected by this issue.
