In the GlobalBlocking extension before 2020-03-10 for MediaWiki through 1.34.0, an issue related to IP range evaluation resulted in blocked users re-gaining escalated privileges. This is related to the case in which an IP address is contained in two ranges, one of which is locally disabled.
CWE-863 - Incorrect Authorization
Authorization is a security mechanism performed by an application to grant or deny access to the requested resources by verifying the privileges of the user. When an application lacks effective authorization mechanisms, it enables unauthorized users to gain unintended privileges and illegitimate access to resources. Such a vulnerability may result in exposure of sensitive information, denial of service, arbitrary code execution, and complete system takeover.
