Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls


Severity High
Score 7.5/10


BadBlue 2.72 Personal Edition stores multiple programs in the web document root with insufficient access control, which allows remote attackers to (1) cause a denial of service via multiple invocations of uninst.exe, and have an unknown impact via (2) badblue.exe and (3) dyndns.exe. NOTE: this can be leveraged for arbitrary remote code execution in conjunction with CVE-2007-6378.

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.
