Abstract:
-------------
BusinessObjects Explorer is vulnerable against XML External Entity (XXE)
attacks. This affected the whole application and not only the examples
described below.
This vulnerability could be triggered as unauthenticated user, as the
login request uses vulnerable XML processing as well.


Affected:
---------
Vulnerable:
SAP BusinessObjects Explorer version 14.0.5 (build 882)

Not tested:
Other versions of BusinessObjects Explorer


Technical Description:
----------------------
BusinessObjects Explorer does not validate user-defined XML inputs.
Additionally, the service does run an XML interpreter allowing
references to external entities. This leads to XML External Entity (XXE)
attacks [1].

In the following example, an explorationSpaceUpdate request has been
used to store in the value of a country the content of file /etc/passwd:

URL: /explorer/polestar_xml.jsp
Request extract:
POST /explorer/polestar_xml.jsp HTTP/1.1
[CUT BY COMPASS]
Content-Length: 33258
=> xmlParameter=<!DOCTYPE dataDiscovery [ <!ENTITY include SYSTEM "/etc/passwd">]>

The following explorationSpaceDetail request has been used to retrieve
the stored value.
