4. Affected Components Description

SAP HANA is a platform for real-time business. It combines database, data processing, and application platform capabilities in-memory. The platform provides libraries for predictive, planning, text processing, spatial, and business analytics.

5. Vulnerability Details

The SAP HANA Developer Edition contains multiple reflected Cross Site Scripting Vulnerabilities (XSS) in the democontent area, specifically on the pages:

/sap/hana/democontent/epm/admin/DataGen.xsjs /sap/hana/democontent/epm/services/multiply.xsjs

A reflected cross-site scripting attack can be used to non-permanently deface or modify displayed content from a Web site. Reflected cross-site scripting can be used to steal another user's authentication information, such as data relating to their current session. An attacker who gains access to this data may use it to impersonate the user and access all information with the same rights as the target user. If an administrator is impersonated, the security of he application may be fully compromised.

6. Solution

SAP has released SAP Note 2009696 which provide patched versions of the affected components.

The patches can be downloaded from https://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/2009696.
