Improper Privilege Management
OpenStack Identity (Keystone) before 2014.1.1 does not properly handle when a role is assigned to a group that has the same ID as a user, which allows remote authenticated users to gain privileges that are assigned to a group with the same ID.
CWE-269 - Improper Privilege Management
An effective privilege management infrastructure provides valid users with required access and privileges across heterogeneous technology environments. An application with a faulty privilege management infrastructure allows higher than authorized privileges or enables privilege escalation. This can lead to security incidents such as system infiltration, data breach, and complete system takeover.
