Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
The AMD ATI atidsmxx.sys 3.0.502.0 driver on Windows Vista allows local users to bypass the driver signing policy, write to arbitrary kernel memory locations, and thereby gain privileges via unspecified vectors, as demonstrated by "Purple Pill".
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.
