Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls


Severity Medium
Score 5/10


The Dell DellSystemLite.Scanner ActiveX control in DellSystemLite.ocx does not properly restrict the values of the WMIAttributesOfInterest property, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary WMI Query Language (WQL) statements via a crafted value, as demonstrated by a value that triggers disclosure of information about installed software.

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.
