Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
block/scsi_ioctl.c in the Linux kernel through 3.8 does not properly consider the SCSI device class during authorization of SCSI commands, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions via an SG_IO ioctl call that leverages overlapping opcodes.
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.
