Bug: File path traversal vulnerability
Reported: September 2022
Date of Public Advisory: October 12, 2022
Reference: SAP Security Note 3242933
Author: RedRays R&D
Title: 3242933 – [CVE-2022-39802] File path traversal vulnerability in SAP Manufacturing Execution
Date published: 12.10.2022
Remotely Exploitable: Yes
Locally Exploitable: No
CVSS v3 Base Score: 9.9 / 10 (AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:N)
With a CVSS rating of 9.9, the vulnerability fixed in SAP Security Note #3242933 affects SAP Manufacturing Execution and is considered significant.
The URL used to inquire for this data included a file path argument that could be modified to provide unrestricted directory browsing on the remote server. The OS user running the NetWeaver process or service would be able to access the files contained in each directory. The code fix in the patch takes care of the route internally. This prevents the value from being sent in dynamically as a query string. With a CVSS score of 9.9, the effect on confidentiality, integrity, and availability may be quite substantial depending on the kind of information that is accessed during an attack.
SAP suggests a temporary fix in which sensitive data is removed from the file systems available to the OS user and the OS user’s access to unnecessary file paths is restricted.
PoC will be published in January 2023.
