CVE-2013-4661

Severity Medium
Score 4.9/10

Summary

CiviCRM 2.0.0 through 4.2.9 and 4.3.0 through 4.3.3 does not properly enforce role-based access control (RBAC) restrictions for default custom searches, which allows remote authenticated users with the "access CiviCRM" permission to bypass intended access restrictions, as demonstrated by accessing custom contribution data without having the "access CiviContribute" permission.

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.
