The following component is affected:

  • Spotfire library

Description

The component listed above contains a vulnerability that theoretically allows an attacker with write permissions to the Spotfire Library, but not "Script Author" group permission, to modify attributes of files and objects saved to the library such that the system treats them as trusted. This could allow an attacker to cause the Spotfire Web Player, Analyst clients, and TERR Service into executing arbitrary code with the privileges of the system account that started those processes.

Impact

The impact of this vulnerability includes the theoretical possibility that an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the system account that started the Spotfire Web Player, Analyst clients, or TERR Service.
