(Resolved) Hitachi Vantara Pentaho Business Analytics Server - Improper Restriction of XML External Entity Reference - versions before 10.1.0.0 and 9.3.0.7, including 8.3.x Impacted (CVE-2024-28982)

Overview 

The product uses XML documents and allows their structure to be defined with a Document Type Definition (DTD), but it does not properly control the number of recursive definitions of entities. (CWE-776)

 

Products Affected 

Hitachi Vantara Pentaho Business Analytics Server versions before 10.1.0.0 and 9.3.0.7, including 8.3.x.

 

Description 

Hitachi Vantara Pentaho Business Analytics Server versions before 10.1.0.0 and 9.3.0.7, including 8.3.x do not correctly protect the ACL service endpoint of the Pentaho User Console against XML External Entity Reference.

 

Impact 

If the DTD contains a large number of nested or recursive entities, this can lead to explosive growth of data when parsed, causing a denial of service.

 

Action  

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.
