In AWS environments, some IAM permissions can lead to privilege escalation, where an identity can gain access to another more privileged identity. This rule identifies when a given group can use sts:AssumeRole to assume a role with administrative privileges. By assuming this more privileges role, an adversary can leverage their permissions for further access.


The identity which triggered this detection can assume a role with administrative privileges, giving them access to the privileges of that role.


Datadog recommends reducing the permissions attached to an IAM group to the minimum required for the group to fulfill its function. To remediate the issue, either remove the sts:AssumeRole permission entirely, or modify the resource specified in the IAM policy.
