The software does not neutralize or incorrectly neutralize user-controllable input before it is placed in output that is used as a web page that is served to other users. (CWE-79)
Hitachi Vantara Pentaho Business Analytics Server versions before 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 are impacted.
Hitachi Vantara Pentaho Business Analytics Server prior to versions 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 allow a malicious URL to inject content into a dashboard when the CDE plugin is present.
Once the malicious script is injected, the attacker can perform a variety of malicious activities. The attacker could transfer private information, such as cookies that may include session information, from the victim's machine to the attacker. The attacker could send malicious requests to a web site on behalf of the victim, which could be especially dangerous to the site if the victim has administrator privileges to manage that site.
The defect may be mitigated now by removing or disabling the CDE plugin.
We recommend you upgrade to the latest Hitachi Vantara Pentaho Business Analytics Server release or Service Pack where this vulnerability is addressed.
Please review the Pentaho End-of-Life policy to ensure you are up to date.
