SFP Secondary Cluster: Insecure Resource Permissions
A category in the Common Weakness Enumeration published by The MITRE Corporation.
Categories in the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) group entries based on some common characteristic or attribute.
This category identifies Software Fault Patterns (SFPs) within the Insecure Resource Permissions cluster.
The software does not preserve permissions or incorrectly preserves permissions when copying, restoring, or sharing objects, which can cause them to have less restrict...
During installation, installed file permissions are set to allow anyone to modify those files.
While it is executing, the software sets the permissions of an object in a way that violates the intended permissions that have been specified by the user.
The product specifies permissions for a security-critical resource in a way that allows that resource to be read or modified by unintended actors.

A product inherits a set of insecure permissions for an object, e.g. when copying from an archive file, without user awareness or involvement.
The product calls umask() with an incorrect argument that is specified as if it is an argument to chmod().
CWE identifiers in this view are associated with clusters of Software Fault Patterns (SFPs).
