Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
The runtime linker (ld.so) in Solaris 8, 9, and 10 trusts the LD_AUDIT environment variable in setuid or setgid programs, which allows local users to gain privileges by (1) modifying LD_AUDIT to reference malicious code and possibly (2) using a long value for LD_AUDIT.
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.
