Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls
providers/settings/SettingsProvider.java in Android 7.0 before 2016-09-01 does not properly enforce the DISALLOW_CONFIG_VPN setting, which allows attackers to bypass an intended always-on VPN state via a crafted application, aka internal bug 29899712.
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.
