Improper Privilege Management
gzip before 1.3 in Solaris 8, when called with the -f or -force flags, will change the permissions of files that are hard linked to the target files, which allows local users to view or modify these files.
CWE-269 - Improper Privilege Management
An effective privilege management infrastructure provides valid users with required access and privileges across heterogeneous technology environments. An application with a faulty privilege management infrastructure allows higher than authorized privileges or enables privilege escalation. This can lead to security incidents such as system infiltration, data breach, and complete system takeover.
