Definition Edit

Administrative access (also referred to as privileged access or root level access) is an

advanced level of access to a computer or application that includes the ability to perform significant configuration changes to the computer's operating system.

Overview Edit

"An intruder with 'root level access' has the highest privileges given to a user working with an operating system or other program and has as much authority on the network as a system administrator, including the authority to access files, alter permissions and privileges, and add or remove accounts."
