Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
The kernel in Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4 and XP SP2 and SP3 allows local users to gain privileges by creating a symbolic link from an untrusted registry hive to a trusted registry hive, aka "Windows Kernel Symbolic Link Creation Vulnerability."
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.
