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)
Hitachi Vantara Pentaho Business Analytics Server versions before 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124, including 8.3.x impacted
Hitachi Vantara Pentaho Business Analytics Server versions before 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52, including 8.3.x do not correctly perform an authorization check in the data source management service.
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.
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 184.108.40.206 or newer applied, or the latest 9.4 release with 220.127.116.11 or newer.
