Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
The rootpw plugin in rPath Appliance Platform Agent 2 and 3 does not re-validate requests from a browser with a valid administrator session, including requests to change the password, which makes it easier for physically proximate attackers to gain privileges and maintain control over the administrator account.
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.
