Can Alice obtain the session key due to the multiplicative properties of the modulus function and the basis of which RSA is built on? Essentially, yes. One way of looking why RSA works (that is, why the encryption and decryption are inverses of each other) is because of two mathematical identities: $$(M^a \bmod N)^b \bmod N = M^{a \cdot b} \bmod N$$ ...
