Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
The pam_unix module in OpenPAM in NetBSD 4.0 before 4.0.2 and 5.0 before 5.0.1 allows local users to change the current root password if it is already known, even when they are not in the wheel group.
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.
