-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Onapsis Security AdvisoryONAPSIS-2015-003: SAP Business Objects Unauthorized File Repository Server Write via CORBA 1. Impact on Business ===================== By exploiting this vulnerability a remote unauthenticated attacker would be able to overwrite sensitive business data stored on the remote system. Risk Level: High 2. Advisory Information ======================= - - Public Release Date: 2015-02-25 - - Subscriber Notification Date: 2015-02-25 - - Last Revised: 2015-02-25 - - Security Advisory ID: ONAPSIS-2015-003 - - Onapsis SVS ID: ONAPSIS-00109 - - CVE: CVE-2015-2074 - - Researcher: Will Vandevanter - - Initial Base CVSS v2: 6.4 (AV:N/AC:L/AU:N/C:N/I:P/A:P) 3. Vulnerability Information ============================ - - Vendor: SAP - - Affected Components: - BussinessObjects Edge 4.0 (Check SAP Note 2018681 for detailed information on affected releases) - - Vulnerability Class: External Control of File Name or Path (CWE-73) - - Remotely Exploitable: Yes - - Locally Exploitable: No - - Authentication Required: No - - Original Advisory: http://www.onapsis.com/research/security-advisories/sap-business-objects-unauthorized-file-repository-server-write-via-corba 4. Affected Components Description ================================== Business Objects is part of the Business Intelligence platform from SAP. It has components that provide performance management, planning, reporting, query and analysis and enterprise information management. Every Business Objects installation provides a web service to interact with different platform services. 5. Vulnerability Details ======================== The BusinessObjects File Repositoy Server (FRS) CORBA listener allows the writing of any file stored in the FRS without authentication. If the attacker wishes to overwrite a file, the only requirement is that the user know the name of the file in the FRS. For example, ??€œfrs://Input/a_103/019/000/4967/1b14796c5b0d5f2c.rpt??€. With knowledge of this filename, the user can write the file remotely without authentication. Note, using CORBA it is also possible to test if a directory or file exists on the file system. Therefore, although unlikely, an attacker could guess directories and then filenames brute-forcing files to overwrite. This would be considerably easier with a predictable file naming convention. 6. Solution =========== SAP has released SAP Note 2018681 which provides patched versions of the affected components. The patches can be downloaded from https://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/2018681 Onapsis strongly recommends SAP customers to download the related security fixes and apply them to the affected components in order to reduce business risks. 7.
