Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
traceroute in Sun Solaris 10 on x86 systems allows local users to execute arbitrary code with PRIV_NET_RAWACCESS privileges via (1) a large number of -g arguments or (2) a malformed -s argument with a trailing . (dot).
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.
