'Kernel Privilege Escalation' generated by XDR Agent detected on host xyz involving user xyz

Hi All

 

We are receiving large number of alerts in our cortex xdr console, The alert is as below, (hostname and user name I have kept as XYZ for privacy)

 

'Kernel Privilege Escalation' generated by XDR Agent detected on host XYZ involving user XYZ"

 

In all the alerts the process involved is "java."

 

I need to understand this alert and the steps to be followed next.

 

Please share you knowledge on this.

 

 

Thanks & Regards
