Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
The Finder in DesktopServices in Apple Mac OS X 10.5.8, and 10.6 before 10.6.4, does not set the expected file ownerships during an "Apply to enclosed items" action, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions via normal filesystem operations.
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.
