(Resolved) Pentaho BA Server - Incorrect Authorization - Versions before 9.4.0.1 and 9.3.0.2, including 8.3.x Impacted (CVE-2022-43940)

Overview 

The software performs an authorization check when an actor attempts to access a resource or perform an action, but it does not correctly perform the check. This allows attackers to bypass intended access restrictions. (CWE-863) 

 

Products Affected 

Hitachi Vantara Pentaho Business Analytics Server versions before 9.4.0.1 and 9.3.0.2, including 8.3.x impacted

 

Description 

Hitachi Vantara Pentaho Business Analytics Server versions before 9.4.0.1 and 9.3.0.2, including 8.3.x do not correctly perform an authorization check in the data source management service. 

 

Impact 

When access control checks are incorrectly applied, users can access data or perform actions that they should not be allowed to perform. This can lead to a wide range of problems, including information exposures and denial of service. 

 

Action  

The defect may be mitigated now by removing the data access plugin from the software installation.  

We recommend you upgrade to Hitachi Vantara Pentaho Business Analytics Server version 9.3 (Long Term Support Release) with 9.3.0.2 or newer applied, or the latest 9.4 release with 9.4.0.1 or newer.

Please review the Pentaho End-of-Life policy to ensure you are up to date.
