Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
The OpenStack Nova (python-nova) package 1:2013.2.3-0 before 1:2013.2.3-0ubuntu1.2 and 1:2014.1-0 before 1:2014.1-0ubuntu1.2 and Openstack Cinder (python-cinder) package 1:2013.2.3-0 before 1:2013.2.3-0ubuntu1.1 and 1:2014.1-0 before 1:2014.1-0ubuntu1.1 for Ubuntu 13.10 and 14.04 LTS does not properly set the sudo configuration, which makes it easier for attackers to gain privileges by leveraging another vulnerability.
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.
