Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
Apple Safari before 3.1.2 on Windows does not properly interpret the URLACTION_SHELL_EXECUTE_HIGHRISK Internet Explorer zone setting, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions, and force a client system to download and execute arbitrary files.
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.
