Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
The Change My Password implementation in the admin interface in Sun Java System Identity Manager (IdM) 7.0 through 8.0 does not enforce the RequiresChallenge property setting, which allows remote authenticated users to change the passwords of other users, as demonstrated by changing the administrator's password.
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.
