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 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 are impacted.

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 can be addressed right now by removing the dashboard editor plugin.
