If there is a vulnerability in the application that allows an attacker to add a user to the system and assign the administrator role, a request to /admin/deleteUser does not require the attacker to be a system administrator. He just needs to set the Referer header to /admin/deleteUser and it will allow him to perform an action.
If the attacker sets the Referer header to a URL that allows him to perform a malicious action (e.g. /admin/deleteUser), then he can trick the application into granting him access to the main administrative page, even though he does not have sufficient permissions.
The system admin, or privileged user, can use the host’s administrative access to modify system-wide configuration parameters to control access for all users, or assign individual users privileges as needed.
Another problem with individual accounts is that they are tied to a host system. Each system must maintain the state of each account and its associated permissions. This means that any changes to the system or its configuration must be done through the system admin. This can also complicate any attempt to revoke or delete an account.
Account isolation refers to the ability to separate user accounts into different security domains to establish trust boundaries. When an account is isolated, it cannot perform all operations on all resources within a given security domain. For example, an account with administrative privileges cannot access information or resources within a shared or public folder; a public folder cannot be accessed by an administrative account. This type of access control is so important, it should be applied consistently across all accounts and resources to prevent privilege escalation.
I am running a PC with Windows 7 and Adobe Photoshop CS6. I am wondering how to end the trial period and convert to a full copy of Photoshop CS6. I tried closing down Photoshop, which produced a message telling me to return the disk. I did that, but the same message returned. How can I end this?
