Fortinet Discovers SAP Lumira DLL Preloading Vulnerability
Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs has discovered a DLL preloading vulnerability in SAP Lumira for Windows.
SAP Lumira is a business intelligence software developed and marketed by SAP BusinessObjects. The software is used to manipulate and visualize data.
SAP Lumira for Windows is susceptible to a DLL preloading vulnerability. The issue occurs when the application looks to load a DLL for execution and an attacker provides a malicious DLL to use instead. The application generally follows a specific search path to locate the DLL. The vulnerability can be exploited by a simple file write (or potentially an over-write) which results in a foreign DLL running under the context of the application.
No vendor patch is available.
Fortinet reported the vulnerability to SAP on June 06, 2017.
SAP confirmed the vulnerability on March 21, 2018.
This vulnerability was discovered by Kushal Arvind Shah of Fortinet's FortiGuard Labs.
