Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
mod_nss 1.0.8 and earlier, when NSSVerifyClient is set to none for the server/vhost context, does not enforce the NSSVerifyClient setting in the directory context, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions.
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.
