Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
The Cisco Content Services Switch (CSS) 11500 with software 08.20.1.01 conveys authentication data through ClientCert-* headers but does not delete client-supplied ClientCert-* headers, which might allow remote attackers to bypass authentication via crafted header data, as demonstrated by a ClientCert-Subject-CN header, aka Bug ID CSCsz04690.
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.
