Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
Certain patches for QNX Neutrino realtime operating system (RTOS) 6.2.0 set insecure permissions for the files (1) /sbin/io-audio by OS Update Patch A, (2) /bin/shutdown, (3) /sbin/fs-pkg, and (4) phshutdown by QNX experimental patches, (5) cpim, (6) vpim, (7) phrelaycfg, and (8) columns, (9) othello, (10) peg, (11) solitaire, and (12) vpoker in the games pack 2.0.3, which allows local users to gain privileges by modifying the files before permissions are changed.
CWE-264 - Permissions Privileges and Access Controls
CWE 264 (permissions, privileges, and access controls) is not a weakness in and of itself, rather it is a category of weaknesses related to the management of permissions, privileges, and other security features used to perform access control. If not addressed, the weaknesses in this category allow attackers to gain privileges for an unintended sphere of control, access sensitive information, and execute arbitrary commands.
