Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
lib/fsm.c in RPM before 4.4.3 does not properly reset the metadata of an executable file during deletion of the file in an RPM package removal, which might allow local users to gain privileges by creating a hard link to a vulnerable (1) setuid or (2) setgid file, a related issue to CVE-2010-2059.
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.
