# Onapsis Security Advisory 2021-0010: File exfiltration and DoS in SolMan End-User Experience Monitoring ## Impact on Business The End-User Experience Monitoring (EEM) application, part of the SAP Solution Manager, is vulnerable to path traversal. As a consequence, an unauthorized attacker would be able to read sensitive OS files and affect the availability of the EEM robots connected to the SolMan. ## Advisory Information - Public Release Date: 06/14/2021 - Security Advisory ID: ONAPSIS-2021-0010 - Researchers: Gonzalo Roisman, Pablo Artuso ## Vulnerability Information - Vendor: SAP - Affected Components: - SAP Solution Manager 7.2 (Check SAP Note #2983204 for detailed information on affected releases) - Vulnerability Class: [CWE-23] Relative Path Traversal - CVSS v3 score: 8.5 (AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:N/A:L) - Risk Level: High - Assigned CVE: CVE-2020-26837 - Vendor patch Information: SAP Security NOTE #2983204 ## Affected Components Description SAP SolMan 7.2 introduces a bunch of web services which run on top of the SAP Java NetWeaver stack. The affected versions have a vulnerable web service exposed. Affected components: * Solman 7.20 * Solman Java Stack NW 7.5 * LM-SERVICE: 1000. (Check SAP Note #2983204 for detailed information on affected releases) ## Vulnerability Details The main objective of the End-user Enterprise Monitoring (EEM) app is to upload scripts which will mimic user actions in order to be able to automatically perform different kinds of tests. In order to develop and upload the aforementioned scripts, a proprietary language has to be used. The lack of sanitization in a specific functionality provided by this proprietary language, allows a malicious user to perform path traversal attacks. Due to these scripts being executed by the EEM robots (by default, SMD Agents), the attacker could exfiltrate files containing sensitive information from the SMDAgents. Furthermore, attacks which affect the availability of some services from the SMDAgents, could be carried out by exploiting this same vulnerability. ## Solution SAP has released SAP Note #2983204 which provide patched versions of the affected components. The patches can be downloaded from Onapsis strongly recommends SAP customers to download the related security fixes and apply them to the affected components in order to reduce business risks. ## Report Timeline - 10/05/2020 - Onapsis sends details to SAP - 10/05/2020 - SAP provides tracking id. - 10/12/2020 - SAP provides update: "Fix in progress" - 11/09/2020 - SAP provides update: "In process" - 11/30/2020 - SAP proposes to split the original submission into two different vulnerabilities. - 12/02/2020 - Onapsis agrees to split the submission. - 12/08/2020 - SAP releases note. ## References - Onapsis blogpost: - CVE Mitre: - Vendor Patch: ## About Onapsis Research Labs Onapsis Research Labs provides the industry analysis of key security issues that impact business-critical systems and applications.
