An undocumented function of the PARSEQUERY function allows you to take keymaps that are located in /reports/rwservlet/showmap and add them to the query which will allow you to dump the database passwords.
•Original Query String(GET) :
•Result Reports Server Command Line
expiredays=0 report=”<keymap>.rdf” jobname=”<keymap>.rdf” desformat=HTML authid=RWUser/ destype=cache userid=account/password@database
An exploit could be written to first check the showmap file and parse the non default keymaps then run queries to grab credentials that could then be used to access various applications and/or databases.
Default keymap values that do not return passwords
Any other keymap on an unpatched server should return usernames/passwords including the name of the database.
