Is a privilege escalation vulnerability in Linux not a vulnerability if it requires authentication?

It was not made clear that it was a privilege escalation...
"Authenticate and browse to /setup.cgi? ... All the fields you see are
vulnerables to command execution as root." So what kind of credentials
are used for the initial authentication? Unprivileged? Then it should
be mentioned as such. Otherwise, I can point out a few dozen embedded
systems with web UIs that allow me to make configuration changes after
authentication because that's why they're there. Now if you can point
out a way to bypass authentication or escalate privileges from an
account that doesn't normally have write access, you've got a
vulnerability. I was merely asking how this differed from any other
auth wall.
