CVE-2018-2451 Unsecure xs CLI session timeout handling in SAP HANA Extended Application Services, advanced, SAP security note 2590705


xs CLI user sessions with the SAP HANA Extended Application Services (XS) advanced server may have an unintentional long period of validity. Thus a platform user could access Controller resources via active CLI session even after corresponding authorizations have been revoked meanwhile by an user administrator. Similarly, an attacker who managed to gain access to the platform user’s session might misuse the session token even after the session has been closed.

This vulnerability could lead to loss of integrity, confidentiality and availability within the scope of the opened session.
