Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
The hook_comments API in Drupal 4.7.x before 4.7.8 and 5.x before 5.3 does not pass publication status, which might allow attackers to bypass access restrictions and trigger e-mail with unpublished comments from some modules, as demonstrated by (1) Organic groups and (2) Subscriptions.
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.
