Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
Stack-based buffer overflow in the command_Expand_Interpret function in command.c in ppp (aka user-ppp), as distributed in FreeBSD 6.3 and 7.0, OpenBSD 4.1 and 4.2, and the net/userppp package for NetBSD, allows local users to gain privileges via long commands containing "~" characters.
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.
