(Resolved) Pentaho BA Server - Improper Neutralization of Directives in Statically Saved Code ('Static Code Injection') - Versions before and, including 8.3.x Impacted (CVE-2022-43940) (CVE-2022-3960)


The software receives input from an upstream component, but it does not neutralize or incorrectly neutralizes code syntax before inserting the input into an executable resource, such as a library, configuration file, or template. (CWE-96) 


Products Affected 

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



Hitachi Vantara Pentaho Business Analytics Server prior to versions and, including 8.3.x cannot allow a system administrator to disable scripting capabilities of the Community Dashboard Editor (CDE) plugin. 



Using such scripts, an authenticated user with sufficient publishing privileges can embed scripts and run arbitrary code on the clients. By default, there is no option to prevent the execution of the included scripts. 



The defect can be mitigated now by removing the CDE plugin. 

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

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