This module replaces administrative overview/listing pages with Views for improved usability.

When combined with other contributed or custom modules, the Administration Views module improperly grants users access to administration pages including the permissions page.

This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that it does not appear in the module itself, but only when combined with select other custom or contributed modules.
