Severity Medium
Score 5/10


ZoneMinder 1.23.3 on Fedora 10 sets the ownership of /etc/zm.conf to the apache user account, and sets the permissions to 0600, which makes it easier for remote attackers to modify this file by accessing it through a (1) PHP or (2) CGI script.

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.
