Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
ISNTSmtp directory in Trend Micro InterScan Messaging Security Suite (IMSS) 5.5 build 1183 and possibly other versions before 188.8.131.521, uses insecure DACLs for critical files, which allows local users to gain SYSTEM privileges by modifying ISNTSysMonitor.exe.
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.
