TIBCO EBX EXML External Entity

Original release date: January 12, 2021

Source: TIBCO Software Inc.

Systems Affected

The following components are affected:

  • TIBCO EBX Add-on for Oracle Hyperion EPM
  • TIBCO EBX Data Exchange Add-on

The components listed above contain a vulnerability that theoretically allows a low privileged attacker with network access to execute an XML External Entity (XXE) attack.
