Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
The sandbox environment in the Google App Engine Python SDK before 1.5.4 does not properly prevent os.popen calls, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions and execute arbitrary commands via a dev_appserver.RestrictedPathFunction._original_os reference within the code parameter to _ah/admin/interactive/execute, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1364.
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.
